E4’s All Star Driving School is coming back for a second series and Towie’s James ‘Arg’ Argent is the star signing after encouragement from girlfriend and petrol head Gemma Collins.
The reality favourite, 30, has already passed his theory test in preparation for the show, which is filming over the summer.

A source said: “Arg is really nervous about the week of intensive driving lessons, he has struggled with lessons in the past.
“But Gemma really wants him to pass because she loves cars and thinks it would make their lifestyle much better so he could drive her around for a change.”
Six years ago lothario James, 30, failed his theory test and found out on camera before joking to ex-girlfriend Lydia Bright “lets get the bus home then”.
Gemma, 37, has decided not to be James’s instructor herself as trying to teach cast mate Harry Derbidge to drive in 2012 may have put her off.
