Viewers furious as Arg drops Line of Duty spoiler during GMB debut

He's was on the morning show as a guest showbiz reporter

James Argent made his presenting debut on today’s Good Morning Britain.

The TOWIE star and on-and-off again boyfriend of Gemma Collins was filling in for Richard Arnold as a guest showbiz reporter.

The 31-year-old, known by nick nickname “Arg” was presenting alongside Kate Garraway and Richard Madeley.

During his segment, Arg admitted he’d never watched BBC drama Line of Duty, but then rather bizarrely went on to drop a huge clanger about last night’s episode – leaving fans fuming.

“No spoilers!” urged Kate, to which Arg replied: “Nope, nope… one of the characters died!”

“Oh no, I’m going to be wondering who it is now,” Kate said.

“I think it’s Stephen Graham isn’t it, the actor,” Arg added. “He’s one of my favourite actors. I watched him in Snatch. I absolutely love him.

“It’s a bit like Game Of Thrones. They chop the big names out of nowhere.”

Graham played character John Corbett in the latest series, series 5, of the show.

While the episode may have aired Sunday night, many viewers will be waiting to watch it on catch up, and were understandably furious at Arg’s bombshell remarks.

One person said: “Arg tries his best not to spoil it but @richardm56 just basically gives it away who dies in #LineOfDuty. Subtle as a brick through a greenhouse window mate…”

Another said: “Arg just said who was killed in last nights #lineofduty,” while a third added: “Arg has spoilt it for everyone, useless fat fuck. #LineOfDuty #GMB.”

While Arg’s presenting debut certainly went a bit better than previous guests, such as Spencer Matthews very strained attempt, many Twitter users still slated his presenting skills.

One complained that GMB were “scraping the barrel” by choosing him and another labelled his presenting efforts as “wooden.”

However, Arg wasn’t the only one to make an unfortunate blunder on Monday’s episode.

Kate Garraway tried to force Arg to drink a Marks & Spencer canned mojito on air.

Arg defiantly refused the drink after Kate poured him a cup – who was clearly oblivious to the fact that he is a recovering alcoholic.

“Do you know what? I’m going to say no because I’m eight months clean and sober!” Arg told Kate.
