James ‘Arg’ Argent has revealed he is six months sober, and wants to be the "Spanish David Hasselhoff."
The TOWIE star left the reality show after he entered rehab for drink and drug abuse last year, which was his third time in a facility for help with his addictions.
But now he is six months sober and is "in a great place," enjoying watching his girlfriend Gemma Collins shine on Dancing on Ice .
Arg has his own goals, however, as he revealed the door back to TOWIE is "always open," but will take time now to tour all over Spain as part of his new singing career.

He told the Loose Women: "At the moment I’m in a great place, obviously I don’t want to go into too much detail but I’m around six months sober.
"I’d still like to get a bit of weight off, I’ve been told the door is open for me to return to TOWIE but I am not going to rush or make any decison, but it’s nice to know I can go back.
"I think taking each step and the thing I’m most happy about is my singing gigs. I used to always do it and I enjoyed it but I’ve been taking it more seriously.
"You know David Hasselhoff is a superstar in Germany, I’m a bit of a superstar in Spain! I go to Spain and I’ve got a tour in Tenerife and tour in Marbella, I’m touring Majorca and Ibiza – I’m like a Spanish legend."

Asked whether he intends to propose to his beloved GC, he replied: "You never know at the moment I literally… if I was to have propoal plans or kids or marriage, everything’s put to the side until Dancing on Ice is finished.
"I’m not even in it but it’s a full time job for me!"
She is a big fan of how his girlfriend is handling the pressures of Dancing on Ice, joking: "Usually they say, ‘behind every successful man, there’s a strong woman, but it seems to be the other way round with me and Gemma, doesn’t it?
