THE only way was Brierley Hill for fans of reality TV star James 'Arg' Argent today (Thursday).

Fans queued up to catch a glimpse of Arg as he signed copies of his tell-all autobiography at WH Smiths, Merry Hill.

Living It Arg, which has already made The Sunday Times Best Seller List, lifts the lid on his relationships with fellow The Only Way is Essex co-stars Lydia Bright and Gemma Collins.

Explaining what people can expect from the book, Arg said: "It's a story of how an everyday guy from Essex went from doing nothing to all of a sudden appearing on a BAFTA award-winning show.

"Fans of TOWIE have seen what my life has been like over the last few years but the book is about me growing up, how I was bullied as a kid and met my best mate Mark Wright.

"It also explains how I met Lydia, she was the love of my life - we were together two years before we started the show but it was a rocky relationship."

After his book tour has finished, Arg will start filming series 12 of the show, which will open with a Marbella special.

He added: "Lydia will be there so I need to try and lose a bit of weight if I'm going to be on the beach next to her."
