Relationships stemming from reality shows such as The Only Way is Essex never really seem to fare well.

The pressure is often too much for reality TV couples.

And it looks like Gemma Collins and James Argent’s relationship is no different.

The TOWIE pair are off and on like a dodgy lightbulb.

Here’s everything you need to know about Gemma and Arg’s romance…

Gemma and Arg over the years

Like most reality TV couples’ relationships, Gemma and Arg’s has been a rollercoaster.

In what looked like an innocent Instagram post involving her new clothing line, Gemma dropped a huge bomb at the end of it by stating that she’s now “single” on May 4th 2019.

However, their breakups can no longer be taken too seriously as The Sun reported that even their friends are saying that “they wouldn’t be surprised if they got back together, considering their history”.

When did Gemma and Arg meet?

Gemma and Arg got together properly around December 2017.

Previous to that Arg was in a long term on and off relationship with ex-TOWIE star Lydia Bright.

In his breaks with Lydia, it seemed that Arg would gravitate towards Gemma.

They’ve been through some rough patches in the past with memorable outbursts from Gemma including when she told him in 2012: “You ain’t ever gonna get this candy”.

Are they still together?

Gemma and Arg are pretty much the definition of an off/on relationship.

In the May 2019 Instagram post where Gemma announced that she was single, she said that she’s “taking it stateside L.A” and “counting down the days”.

The GC may be back on the market for now, but we won’t hold our breath!

Even her best friend, Bobby Norris, said in an interview that he couldn’t keep up.
