Their relationship has proved to be decidedly tumultuous over the past seven years, with countless breakups and reunions between the pair.
But Gemma Collins, 37, learned just how keen James Argent, 30, is to bowl her over at the weekend, when he took to the stage during the popular acrobatic show Pirates Reloaded and performed a song especially for her on their Mallorca break.
As blonde TOWIE star Gemma sat gobsmacked in the sizeable audience, Arg — after much encouragement from the crowd — made his way to the stage, from which he belted out his rendition of the Frankie Valli classic Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.
