He spent the current season of The Only Way Is Essex struggling to accept his ex-girlfriend Lydia Bright has moved on following their split.
So after a recent fall-out with friend Tom Kilbey after finding out he is now seeing his former love, what better way for James 'Arg' Argent to forget about the drama with a lads' holiday in Las Vegas.
After filming scenes for the final Series 5 episode – due to be screened on Sunday – Arg jetted to Nevada's Sin City to be reunited with best friend Mark Wright.

Ex-TOWIE star Wright has been in the U.S. over the past few weeks filming his new ITV2 reality show, while Argent has been back in Essex shooting scenes for TOWIE.
On his first day in Vegas, Arg and Mark hired a $5,000 poolside cabana at the Cosmopolitan Hotel's pool party.
Stripping off to a pair of orange swimming trunks, it looked like Lydia was the last thing on Arg's mind as he chatted to a group of bikini-clad holidaymakers.

Mark tweeted about his friend: 'This man has been smiling 4 3 days he lives the dream and I love him.'
And it appeared Arg was equally excited to be with his friend, tweeting: 'Best place in the world 4 a Hangover #Vegas an the best mate in the world @MarkWright_ #MargReunited.
'Got Jet Lag and its hard with time difference out here! Had a nap and @MarkWright_ poured a bucket of water over me 3 times! #nothingchanges.'
Mark arrived in LA a few weeks ago with some of his best friends from back in Essex – DJ Nick Da Funk, Tommy Smith, his cousin Georgie Wright and his manager Neil Dobias to film his new reality show.

On Wednesday, they decided to take a detour along the historic Route 66 to Vegas instead of the Interstate 15 highway.
Despite her reputation as a lothario, Mark recently insisted he doesn't have one-night stands any more.
His last relationship was with Sam Faiers last December, but she called it off during an episode in Series 3, complaining she couldn't trust him.

He said: 'When I'm out, I don't like to look at a girl and think, 'Oh I really want to sleep with you, but I'm not going to do it because of my job.
'When I was younger, I suppose I got a lot of action but I've got to calm it down now I'm a bit older.
'It doesn't really appeal to me. I don't see the interest in going home with random girls and waking up the next morning with a girl you don't know.''
Mark Wright's Hollywood Nights starts on ITV2 on June 3.
