James Argent shows off his paddleboard skills at juice retreat in Portugal after missing Towie reunion

JAMES ‘Arg’ Argent showed off his paddleboard skills while soaking up the sun at a juice retreat in Portugal after missing the Towie reunion.

The 32-year-old star looked happy and relaxed as he frolicked in the ocean – at one point face-planting in the water as he fell off the board.

Arg channelled Baywatch dressed in a pair of bold red swimming trunks, with his enviable tan on display having spent much of the summer overseas.

The reality TV favourite desperately tried to get to grips with the water activity, remaining determined even after he’d fallen under.

Refusing to give up, Arg was seen getting back on the paddleboard and giving it another go before eventually retreating from the water.

The ocean adventure comes after Arg was forced to miss Towie’s 10-year anniversary special after opting to remain in Spain in a bid to dodge strict quarantine rules in the UK for Brits returning from the country.

Arg shot to fame on the ITV2 series alongside best pal Mark Wright in 2010, and bosses invited him back for the special episode despite him being sacked over his cocaine use.

A source told The Sun last week: “Arg was caught out because he was in Marbella for a gig when the rules changed.

“It made more sense for him to stay out there until the next gig, and he wouldn’t have been able to film for Towie anyway because he’d have had to quarantine for two weeks when he got back from Spain.

“He’s really sad to miss filming as he loves the show but will be watching at home.”

The episode aired on Sunday and was widely-received by viewers, who enjoyed having old faces back on their screens.

Towie alumni such as Sam and Billie Faiers, Amy Childs, and Lydia Bright returned as they looked back at iconic moments from the show over the last decade.

Arg’s best pal Mark opted not to appear – despite being the main star when the series began.

Meanwhile, Arg’s ex Gemma Collins recorded a special video message from abroad after being voted the show’s most iconic cast member.
