Gemma Collins’ boyfriend Arg ‘in talks’ to star on Dancing On Ice

Gemma thinks the show could be good for him

Gemma Collins' boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent is reportedly already having talks with Dancing On Ice bosses about appearing on the show.

Gemma, 38, entertained the nation on the show over the last month, but she was voted out of the competition on Sunday night alongside her professional skating partner Matt Evers.

Now, it seems her beau Arg could appear in the next series of the show and he apparently would love to be partnered with pro Brandee Malto.

An insider told The Sun: "James was talking to producers about signing up for the show next series last night where everyone was saying goodbye to Gemma.

"The Dancing on Ice bosses are keen on him too after Gemma's success on the show - she made it the most talked about show this year.

"James has been bowled over by how much weight Gemma has lost since being on the show - he is raring to go and told them he wants to be partnered up with Brandee Malto."

The source added that Arg saw how much the show benefited Gemma's health and that's persuaded him to sign up.

Ent Daily has contacted reps for Arg for comment.

It comes after Gemma spoke about Arg possibly doing the show during an appearance on Monday's This Morning.

When asked if she thinks Arg would do the show, Gemma said: "Absolutely. I want him to do it.

"He really wants to get his fitness back. Obviously, he's been back in recovery for six months. He's doing so well and this will be the next thing to get his health and fitness back."
