Too many cooks…: Gemma has fallen for him, having watched him on his food travelogue show with Gordon Ramsay and Gino D’Acampo
James – who recently underwent gastric sleeve surgery after his weight creeped up to 27 stone – attended a celebrity charity football match on Saturday and was seen chatting to a TOWIE producer.
The pair looked in good spirits with Arg’s pal seen giving him a hug and a kiss on the cheek.
She even bore a slight resemblance to Gemma.

Gemma’s appearance comes after she returned to fighting form as she sipped on a glass of champagne after recently battling a mystery illness.
The former TOWIE star told fans last week she was convinced she had ‘some sort of virus’ and was feeling ‘so unwell’.
However, Gemma looked in good spirits on Sunday as she shared a clip of herself enjoying a drink with a friend while out in the sunshine shortly after confirming she has her ‘energy back’.

On Saturday, the star reassured fans she was back to her old self as she shared a photo of herself posing in a field.
Alongside the post, she wrote: ‘ENERGY BACK ⚡️☀️ I asked you answered UNIVERSE THANKYOU⭐️☄️☄️☄️’.
Gemma had a private nurse at her home, looking after her, and later took to social media to reassure her fans that she was ‘slowly getting there.’
Her father Alan was also on hand to look after her, and ‘make tea,’ with one post showing her dad sat at her side.

Since dropping weight, Gemma has been showing off her ongoing transformation on social media.
She also recently shared a wardrobe clear out on her social media as she sold off her size 26 clothes, which are now too big for her following the weight loss.
She said: ‘It’s all got to go. It’s kind of like the old me, I don’t wear this stuff anymore and obviously I have lost a bit of weight so it doesn’t fit anymore.’
‘I have got hundreds of hoodies, I must have a hundred pairs of jeans and so many black leggings, it’s all going, but the good news is it’s all going on my Depop.’
Gemma got some help from a company called Styled By Lauren to declutter and redefine her wardrobe.
