TOWIE star Gemma has had an on-off relationship with James, best known as Arg, 32, for years and things seemed sunny for the pair after Arg cited Gemma as one of his rocks during his ongoing battle with cocaine addiction.

The string of messages were posted on Gemma's Instagram account to her 1.9m followers, however they have since been deleted.

In the conversation it seems like James has treated another woman to dinner and Gemma is reasonably upset about this.

The messages began with Gemma saying: "What man pays for another woman!!!"

Gemma told him: "I'll take a mate, I'm not booking it. You said you would be a gentleman!"

A furious Arg shouted back: "YOU FAT F**K. IVE JUST LOST ANOTHER 2000."

Gemma then shared a screenshot of cruel pig emojis she'd been sent, although it was unclear if these were also from Arg.
