Moment James Argent returns to the stage after being dumped by Gemma Collins over drug use

THE moment James Argent returned to the stage after being dumped by Gemma Collins over drug use has been revealed.

The 31-year-old star performed  in Majorca, Spain earlier this week – just days after The GC dumped him for refusing to return to rehab.

Appearing lighthearted as he chatted with the crowd, Arg joked around as he alluded to the headlines by admitting it's been "one hell of a week".

The Sun Online previously revealed that police were forced to break into his £1.3million five-bed house in South Woodford, North East London after he failed to return calls for more than 12 hours.

Despite the recent drama, Arg appeared upbeat as he addressed crowds at Stadium 63 bar in Palma Nova.

After performing Somewhere Beyond The Sea, the TOWIE star, who was dressed in a blue shirt and chino trousers, reassured fans he was doing well.

He said: "Ladies and gentlemen, my name is James 'Arg' Argent.

"It's been a hell of a week for me, it's been a tough week but I'm so glad to be here tonight.

"You've really all cheered me up."

The short speech was followed by a rendition of Frank Sinatra's Fly Me to the Moon.

Over the weekend, Gemma was left with no other choice but to dial 999 amid fears Arg had overdosed.

Medics checked Arg and his parents insisted they could look after him. But three hours later they raised the alarm again amid further “concerns for his welfare”.

A family source said: “James’ friends are beyond worried. Their concern is that if this behaviour keeps on happening that one day soon they will go around to find him dead.

"He has become more and more reclusive and his loved ones are worried about what is going on behind closed doors, away from watchful eyes.

“Gemma raised the alarm because after hearing from his mum and dad she thought the worst. When paramedics turned up and couldn’t get in everyone was beside themselves.

“It took the quick thinking of police to smash through the glass panel on his front door to undo the bolt and get in.

“Arg needs a wake-up call and hopefully this will be it.”

Arg has had several stints in rehab — and was booted off Towie this year after failing a drug test.

The incident led Gemma to tell call time on their tumultuous relationship until he beats his addiction.

A pal said: “Gemma genuinely thinks Arg will end up dead before long unless he gets clean.

“The people around him just keep covering for him, and if that keeps happening it’ll have a tragic ending. He’s on a one-way ticket to nowhere."
