‘Super excited for my comeback to the small screen & taking part in the brilliant @celebsgodating on E4. I’m a huge fan of the show after watching 2 of my closest mates Joey & Ferne previously take part!’
Poking fun at his own unsuccessful relationships of the past, he then added jestingly: ‘Hopefully I don’t get rejected too many times lol,’ before calling out to his followers, ‘Anyone up for a date!? Haha x’
The post was met with excitement from his fans, with many even taking to the comments to write: ‘I would take you out for def #hotness’ and ‘I’m sure there’s loads of ladies that would be up for the challenge (wink) @real_arg’

Arg has enjoyed a number of dates for the show in recent weeks, although he has never publicly affirmed his appearance until now.
Last week he was seen enjoying dinner in London with a red-headed beauty, following a string of meetings and even a quick kiss with personal trainer Victoria Winterford.
However, a source told MailOnline that Arg, who used to date former co-star Lydia Bright, is simply enjoying single life for now, and enjoying the excitement of the dating scene.
The insider revealed: ‘They have been on a date and he likes her but he’s very much single and enjoying dating.’

Before adding: ‘He’s getting a lot of positive attention now he’s looking so good.’
Before Victoria, he was also rumoured to be romancing university student Cadah Draper – who he had fallen ‘head over heels’ for after meeting her on the E4 show.
It is no wonder Arg is feeling so confident with the ladies, having dramatically slimmed down by two stone following a ten-week rehab stint in Thailand.
Arg had taken a break from The Only Way Is Essex at the end of last year and checked himself into rehab following the break down of his relationship with ex-girlfriend Lydia, 27, that allegedly saw him fall off the wagon.
It was the reality star’s second stint in rehab, having checked into the Priory in early 2015 after allegedly testing positive for cocaine and being suspended from TOWIE.
Escaping overseas for ten weeks, Arg embarked on a get-fit mission that saw him climbing waterfalls, swimming and venturing out on lengthy bike rides in order to kick-start his weight loss.
On his return to his native Essex, it was claimed that Arg was in the ‘best place he has ever been’.
A source told The Sun in April: ‘He won’t go back to the old Arg ever again and he certainly won’t pile the weight back on – he’s completely changed, he’s focused and he’s happy.’
