James Argent looked carefree as he went for a refreshing dip in Marbella, Spain on Wednesday.

The former TOWIE star, 32, appeared relaxed as he went shirtless and donned a pair of navy swimming trunks to go for a swim after returning from his juicing retreat in Portugal.

Arg, who recently endured an extremely acrimonious split from on-off love Gemma Collins, was taking his mind off the recent drama by soaking up the sun.

He later donned a gold swimming hat and goggles as he went diving in the sea. 

The reality star flew to Spain after his bitter break-up with Gemma, 39, and announced on Instagram that he was on a juicing retreat in Portugal this week.

Sharing a photo of a healthy green smoothie, he wrote: ’10 days of healing. I feel so much better physically and mentally.’

The appearance 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 series of texts began with Gemma saying: ‘What man pays for another woman!!!’, while Arg responded by saying: ‘Insensitive.’   

Clearly riled, the blonde said: ‘And the woman that saved your life has to pay for herself!!!’ Her next message was masked, but her now-ex responded: ‘You are supposed to be treating me you hippo.’

Moments later, Gemma uploaded another series of messages, where he sent her a plane emoji in reply to a picture of flight details.

‘I’ll take a mate, I’m not booking it. You said you would be a gentleman!’, she penned, before he shockingly said: ‘YOU FAT F**K. IVE JUST LOST ANOTHER 2000’ (sic). He didn’t refer to what he had lost 2000 of. 

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.

She wrote: ‘I am sorry about putting the messages up, I was just so hurt you suggested an open relationship, it didn’t look like a joke when you typed it.

‘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.

The end: The appearance comes after Argent and recent ex Gemma ended their relationship in July after she revealed a string of abusive messages he sent to her (pictured last January)
