Arg gets a special surprise from Jessie J after getting “bad news” this week

The popstar made a special appearance

James ‘Arg’ Argent was given a huge surprise ahead of his singing gig this week after pop superstar Jessie J turned up!

Jessie, 31, stunned holidaymakers when she appeared at Olivia’s La Cala in Spain, where reality star Arg has a singing residency.

The star popped up on stage and took the mic to introduce Arg’s set – and he was overwhelmed after getting some “bad news” earlier in the week.

Arg, also 31, explained: “I got some bad news this week that really upset me, I can’t tell you how happy this made me and really cheered me up! What a special surprise, the wonderful @jessiej introducing me on stage for my gig in @olivias_la_cala.”

The TOWIE star then thanked the bar and restaurant’s owner, his close pal Elliott Wright, adding: “Thank you @elliottwright_ Absolutely amazing.”

In Arg’s Instagram clip, Essex girl Jessie began by telling the crowd: “I’m from Essex. This is so fun. Thank you for having us Elliott. I have a show here tomorrow and I brought out all my crew and my band. But I want to introduce someone right now who is just the sweetest guy. I just met him.”

Signalling to Arg, Jessie continued: “Come on, do a slow motion walk through…

“Being a performer is the most exciting and scary thing to do, so I want you guys to show your appreciation for the hard work, dedication and passion this man has. Ladies and gentleman, I introduce to you (begins singing) Arg!”

The pair then shared a hug on stage and a stunned Arg told Jessie: “Thank you so much.”
