James 'Arg' Argent has spoken about the 'embarrassing' missing persons incident


"So I basically just chilled in the hotel with no battery. Then I woke up and asked the cleaner for a charger and she knocked on the door and said, 'You're missing!'

"And I said, 'What do you mean I'm missing?', and she said, 'It's all over the news'. So I went and put my phone on charge and went on Twitter and all I saw was #PrayForArg.

"I was thinking, why are they praying for me? And then I phoned my mum and that was it. It was a bit embarrassing."
