For the large part of The Only Way is Essex, you can tell what is and isn’t scripted.
In episode seven, James ‘Arg’ Argent launched into a fierce verbal attack on Bobby Norris as the rest of the TOWIE cast looked in shock.
That wasn’t in the script…
Wtf arg v Bobby ? #Towie

Gemma Collins Photoshop Row
The drama unfolded following the result of the Bobby Norris Booty Ball.
Gemma Collins sat around with boyfriend Arg as he attempted to wind up the others, saying that Yazmin Oukhello was “distraught” that she didn’t win the ‘best bum competition’.
Forget the best arse in Essex comp.
The biggest arsehole in Essex is……..

With the crew laughing around and joking, Arg suddenly turned from smiling to clenching his teeth in anger.
Gemma Collins whispered across to Bobby – as if it was supposed to be off-camera – that Arg had told her about Bobby’s inappropriate ‘Photoshop’ joke earlier that day.
Bobby had responded with “probably on Photoshop” when someone had asked where Gemma was.
The joke refers to copyright issues Gemma is currently facing, having superimposed her face over another model’s face to promote her Gemma Collins Collection.

Arg on the Attack
Bobby called Arg a “sh*t stirrer” for telling Gemma about the joke before Arg exploded with anger.
Usually, you can tell when a potential argument had been scripted to unfold, however, this came completely out of the blue.

Arg said “I’m done” and walked away from the situation, leaving Chloe Sims with a very confused face as to why the argument kicked off.
What just happened…

Bobby Bites Back
At first, it was difficult to take Bobby seriously, as he picked up the plastic mould of his own bottom to vent his anger.
Swear I thought bobby was going to batter arg with his arse mould ? #towie

However, once stood up, it was clear to see the raw emotion boiling inside Bobby’s blood.
He was calmed down by Dean Ralph, who pretty much physically restrained his Essex pal.
Bobby said, referring to Gemma: Do you think I’d ever do anything to upset you?”
Chloe, meanwhile, still looked like this…
