Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am

It's been revealed that earlier this year the reality TV star had a run-in with foreign police and ended up getting a two year ban from EasyJet.
James 'Arg' Argent has been the centre of a whole load of drama recently, from his break-up with Gemma Collins to the rumoured drug abuse, and it's just been revealed that the TV personality's bad luck doesn't end there.
The former TOWIE star, 31, was apparently banned by EasyJet for a whopping two years following a ridiculous altercation while on the plane.
Joined by on-off girlfriend Gemma Collins, who has recently dumped him due to him refusing to back to rehab, Arg was on holiday in Italy when he turned up late for his flight and was told he couldn't get on the plane.
He didn't seem to accept this and in a moment of madness he then opened a fire exit to try to reach the Tarmac, where Gemma was waiting on the plane.
A source revealed to The Sun's Bizarre: “It was a really strange situation and the beginning of the end for him and Gemma.
"It was when he was partying hard, and even though they were meant to be on a couple’s break it was a sign of things to come.
“The latest drama is no surprise when you consider what happened earlier this year.
“Italian police were not impressed by his actions and neither were EasyJet."
James used to be a party animal during his earlier TOWIE days, and was admitted to rehab back in 2014 for drink and drugs, where he spent his birthday and Christmas in the facility.
The reality TV veteran lost a lot of weight and was on a great road to recovery, as he vowed to stay away from his vices as he was in a better place then.
However, it seems like the star has relapsed as he tested positive for cocaine a few weeks ago and was sacked by TOWIE bosses.
