He’s recently jetted to Marbella after completing a juicing retreat.

And James Argent cut a laid-back figure as he arrived at pal Elliot Wright’s restaurant to perform on Thursday.

The former TOWIE star, 32, who recently endured an extremely acrimonious split from on-off love Gemma Collins, was seen heading into Olivia’s La Cala eatery, after recently completing a juicing retreat in Portugal.

Arg looked happy and carefree in a pale blue summer shirt with a white palm tree print as he arrived at the restaurant for the performance.

The reality star opted to team the simple shirt with camel-coloured chinos and tan leather loafers.

Elliot, 38, also cut a casual figure as he arrived at the restaurant for the evening with his glamorous wife Sadie, 28, who displayed her tanned physique in a taupe ruché mini dress.

It comes after Argent and recent ex Gemma ended their relationship in July after she revealed a string of abusive messages, purportedly sent to her by the TV personality prior to their split.

It’s understood James had made derogatory remarks abut her weight after she suggested that he had bought another woman dinner.  

The self-proclaimed diva decided to take some time off social media, citing that she was ‘devastated’ and ‘heartbroken’ by the exchange.

However after returning to the UK from her own Tenerife getaway, Gemma apologised to her former beau for releasing the messages.

In a screenshot obtained by MailOnline, the Diva On Lockdown star contacted her fellow reality star in the early hours of the morning. 

‘I was so upset but I shouldn’t have put the messages up, that was anger on my part which was wrong. I am so sorry about that x.’ (sic)

It’s been a tough year for Argent, with him recently admitting that he is a cocaine addict and that he had overdosed twice last year before hitting rock bottom over Christmas and calling his friend and former co-star Mark Wright for help.

He checked himself into a 10-week bootcamp at The River rehab facility in Thailand earlier this year where he kicked his habit and lost five stone in the process.
