Gemma Collins and ex James Argent ‘REUNITE at flirty dinner’… three months after his ‘hippo’ and ‘fat f**k’ slurs amid their acrimonious split
Gemma Collins and James Argent reunited for a flirty dinner on Thursday.
The TOWIE stars, aged 39 and 32 respectively, were seen getting cosy at Circolo Popolare in London, with insiders saying: ‘Gemma was with her nephews and they entered the restaurant, while Arg was there and they went to join him at the table.’
Back in July, Gemma shared details of her split from Arg, including a barrage of abusive messages from the crooner, in which he sent horrendous slurs.
In the messages, Arg, 32, branded his girlfriend a ‘hippo’ and a ‘fat f**k’, after she suggested that he had bought another woman dinner and not her.

In images obtained by The Mirror, the couple looked up close, while sources continued: ‘At first she sat next to Arg but they later swapped and sat opposite each other with her nephew between them.
‘They looked pretty close and were having a good time together. Arg was laughing and chatting with Gemma and her family.’
Back in July, the series of texts began with Gemma saying: ‘What man pays for another woman!!!’ While Arg responded by saying: ‘Insensitive’. Clearly riled, Gemma said: ‘And the woman that saved your life has to pay for herself!!!’
Gemma’s next message was masked, but Arg replied saying: ‘You are supposed to be treating me you hippo.’ While Gemma simply responded telling him: ‘We’re over.’

Moments later Gemma shared another series of messages, where her ex-beau sent her a plane emoji in reply to a picture of flight details.
Gemma responded by saying: ‘I’ll take a mate, I’m not booking it. You said you would be a gentleman!’
Arg shockingly replied saying: ‘YOU FAT F**K. IVE JUST LOST ANOTHER 2000’. He didn’t refer to what he had lost 2000 of.
After posting the messages, Gemma has decided to take some time off social media, citing that she was ‘devastated’ and ‘heartbroken’ by the exchange.

After their meal, Gemma took to Instagram on Friday to reveal she was living it up in The Corinthia Hotel with her nephews.
She shared a snap and penned: ‘My new home @corinthialondon the service ✌ the homeliness ✌ the staff ✌ the SPA ✌ absolutely exquisite ✌ this defo gets the GC seal of approval ✌ I’m defo turning into Judy Garland …
‘Please don’t turn me away when my money’s runs out I felt so sorry for her in the film ! It’s defo the hotel life for me !! Guys I don’t get this for free it’s purely appreciation thank you so much @corinthialondon #corinthianoments’.
Arg, who has shed five stone following a rehab stint, admitted he is a cocaine addict earlier this year and overdosed twice last year before hitting rock bottom over Christmas and calling his friend and former co-star Mark Wright for help.

He checked himself into a 10-week bootcamp at The River rehab facility in Thailand earlier this year where he kicked his habit and lost weight in the process.
He now attends an outpatient facility near his Essex home regularly.
However, the Sugar Free Farm star still intends to lose another three stone and is already feeling ‘so much better in myself’.
The couple reconciled late last year after jetting off on holiday to Dubai in a final bid to resolve their issues.
Gemma originally dumped Arg after he refused rehab and said their relationship was over until he beat his addiction once and for all.
