JAMES Argent denied he’s back with ex Gemma Collins – but admits he’s “jealous” of her “sex tape”.
The Towie star, 33, revealed he’s “unblocked” his former co-star, 40, from his phone.
Arg – who appeared to talk about his weight loss surgery – denied rumours they’ve got back together, though they remain in contact.
Talking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, he said: “Yeah, we’re not officially back together.
“It’s impossible to be in a relationship bear in mind I can’t meet anyone outside of my house. On a positive note, she is no longer blocked on my phone.
“We’re friends at the moment and we have been in contact. Whatever happens between me and Gemma, we’ve been through a hell of a lot and we’re always going to be close.”
Gemma and Arg faced a very public and nasty split last year in which the Towie star branded her a “hippo”.
However, pals said earlier this year the pair are “spending every waking moment together”.
Arg was also asked about Gemma’s alleged sex tape – which she admitted to having to Piers Morgan on his show, Life Stories.
The reality star said she was going to delete it after wanting to sell it for £1million if she ever fell on hard times.
When pressed by the GMB hosts, James said the sex tape was not of him – but he was “jealous” of the person in it.
He said: “Unfortunately for everyone at home, if she had made a sex tape, it certainly wasn’t with me. I’m not too sure a sex tape with me and Gemma would go for.
“I did watch the Life Stories, I was amused to say the least about the sex tape. I got a little bit jealous or I might have to ask Gemma to show me. Maybe she had made one and maybe she got a bit of backlash and now she’s said she doesn’t have one.”
Gemma said on Dave’s new comedy show Unforgiveable that the sex tape was a “big fat lie”.
