JAMES ‘Arg’ Argent went crazy with “jealousy” when Anthea Turner ended up with a new dance partner on Tuesday.
Anthea was paired with College Challenge contestant and radio and TV host Bobby Seagull for the latest challenge.
Meanwhile, Arg has teamed up with Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson – but got a little distracted during rehearsals when he kept an eye on his “lover” Anthea.
Speaking on camera, Arg admitted he was jealous of not being able to work with the TV presenter – and said she “would be as safe as homes” in his arms.
In the following episode, the couples have the opportunity to perform in front of each other.
Anthea walked onto the stage with Bobby and pulled all the stops – but there was one moment in particular that caught Arg’s attention.
At the end of their routine, Bobby poked his head out of Anthea’s skirt, prompting Arg to confess that he wanted the person to be him instead.
After all the couples had danced, it was time to decide who was the best.
Serious stars Saffron Barker and Tom Malone Jr of Gogglebox hit the park with their performances and were crowned winners tonight.
But this means they’ll have to choose a new partner and someone they’ve never danced with.
Saffron chose comedian Darren Harriott and Tom chose Anthea.
The crushed Arg couldn’t hide his disappointment and said: “He is [Tom] did it to get my skin and to annoy me… he treated me like a threat. “
E4 viewers were agitated, with one writing: “Arg will feel like a god when he finally gets to dance with Anthea. #TheRealDirtyDancing”
Another said: “Arg loves flirting with Anthea! Can’t wait to see him dance with her. He won’t be able to cope. #TheRealDirtyDancing”
A third added: “OMG Arg is obsessed with Anthea…she’s so hot. #TheRealDirtyDancing”
Last night, fans held their breath when James ‘Arg’ Argent admitted to his male co-stars that he was in love with Anthea.
He then revealed that she used to dream about Anthea give him… a Blue Peter badge.
Arg said to his friends: “Anthea does it for me.
“I used to watch her as a kid on my phone and dreamed of her giving me a Blue Peter badge.”
The male wannabe dancers all burst into laughter, with Blue star Lee Ryan admitting: “I think you’d say something else then!”
Viewers at home assumed so, with one tweeting: “‘And I always dream of her giving me one… ..’ Ohhh, a ‘Blue Peter,!’ badge”
Another mused: “Anthea Turner yea, I’ve always wanted a bl … ue Peter badge for him. Jeez Arg, almost spit my beer out #TheRealDirtyDancing”
Ten famous faces – five men and five women – are starring in the new series of The Real Dirty Dancing.
They will all aim to learn the moves from the iconic 80s movie starring the main actors Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.
In the latest season, the contestants are cast as ‘Johnny and Baby’ – and Arg is keen to team up with Anthea, the former host of Blue Peter.
His desires were heightened after dancing with her in the opening episode.
“She’s like a fine wine,” Arg spat out. “She looks even more beautiful than when I was a kid.
“To dance with her, it was my dream come true.”
The Real Dirty Dancing returns to E4 tonight at 9pm
