The Only Way Is Essex star James 'Arg' Argent has said the show will be just as successful without Amy Childs.
Following Amy's decision to leave the programme to focus on other TV roles, the 23-year-old singer reckons the upcoming ITV2 series, which starts on September 25, could be better without the busty redhead.
"The Only Way Is Essex will definitely work without Amy. In series two she was only in it now and then, and series two was just as big as series one, if not bigger," he told The Sun.
"Obviously Amy will be missed but I think from how series two was received, it proves the show is more than capable of doing well and carrying on without her being there. After the Bafta success, I think our viewing figures will hit the roof."
