Arg shared the too-cute snap of him and Ferne McCann looking *seriously* young after his TOWIE co-star congratulated him on joining reality show The Jump

It’s not Thursday, but that hasn’t stopped James ‘Arg’ Argent sharing a *seriously* sweet throwback snap!

The TOWIE star took to Instagram earlier today to post a picture of himself with fellow cast mate Ferne McCann – and we can’t get over how young they look in it!

It shows a slimlineArg and a seriously tanned Ferne on holiday in Marbella, and they’re almost recognisable as the reality TV superstars we know and love today.

Arg sports a blue and white striped polo top and a sheepish grin in the snap, whist Ferne – who finished in second place on the most recent series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! – has bright blonde hair and is smiling from ear to ear.

Arg captioned the shot: ‘It’s got deep with @fernemccann and I today lol! This pic is my favourite of us back in the day #Marbs #whenwewereyoung #PrePrePreTOWIE’


By donning our mathematical super whizz hat (and armed with the knowledge that TOWIE first hit our screens in 2010), we’ve deduced that the snap is at least six years old – but, given how fresh-faced they look, we’d bet that it’s even older!

Arg shared the throwback snap after Ferne took to Instagram to congratulate him on signing up for reality show the The Jump.

Also sharing a (somewhat oddly chopped-in-half) snap of the pals together, Ferne posted: ‘‘Never forget about the ones that were with you from the start!’ I am so excited of my friend @real_arg to be on The Jump! You are going to entertain us all & smash it! 😈😈💜 love you argey.’


Arg announced he’ll be appearing on the new series of the Channel 4 show via Twitter last week, confessing he was ‘excited but nervous at the same time’ and saying: ‘Where there’s a will there’s a way haha!’

Like Ferne, we can’t wait to see what Arg has up his (skin-tight ski suit’s) sleeve!
