Famous on-again-off-again couple James ‘Arg’ Argent and Gemma “The GC” Collins were crowned an official couple during episode two of The Only Way is Essex.
You may have seen Gemma slaying the single market over winter thanks to her appearances on E4 series Celebs Go Dating.
However, she’s now finally settled down with Essex-boy Arg following a romantic proposal.
Awww love Gemma and arg #towie

Was so cute the whole Arg asking gemma to be his girlfriend situation. I think a mariachi band is a must for ANY situation. New shoes = mariachi. book a holiday = mariachi time. #TOWIE

Better Ask Mumma
Many famous TOWIE scenes can be traced back to a moment with someone’s mum – or nan!
Here, Arg found himself having a heart-to-heart with Gemma’s mother.
He unintentionally suggested that he was about to make a marriage proposal to Miss Collins.
Arg said: “It’s kind of just hit me, how lucky I am to have her in my life, and how special she is to me. I love her company. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m in love with your daughter.”
After all that, however, all Arg really wanted to do was to ask Gemz to be his GF.
Popping the Question
Although asking someone to be your girlfriend may sound like the sort of thing that 12-year-olds do at school, Arg pulled out all of the stops to make sure Gemma said yes.
We watched in admiration as Arg lured his girlfriend-to-be out of her shop with the sound of a mariachi band.
Hidden amidst the moustaches, trumpets, violins and sombreros, Arg appeared with maracas in-hand to surprise Gemma.
The super soft softie explained to Gemma that there was a bit of a mix up with Mexican band, however, having thought they were Spanish.
Nevertheless, Arg pulled through, making a romantic proposal and telling Gemma that he wasn’t going to “hold back” this time around.
Arg said: “I just feel like this time I’m not going to hold back. I’m going to be completely committed and I really want this. I’m in this for the long haul.”
After popping the big question, Gemma nodded along with a huge grin, before the pair kissed and hugged.
