James Argent shows off his dancing skills with Gogglebox star after Real Dirty Dancing patch scandal
JAMES ‘Arg’ Argent and Gogglebox star Tom Malone Jr joked they were the real Baby and Jonny as they showed off their fluid moves.
The former Towie star created a short video using clips from the original 80s film Dirty Dancing and replicated the dance moves with co-star Tom.
The guys who appeared on the E4 show teamed up to recreate the most memorable scenes, including the climactic elevator at the end.
Shaking his hips, Arg proved he still had the moves despite not winning the show as fans said the show was ‘fixed’ after Lee Ryan and Saffron Barker were named winners .
Unfortunately, the reality pair couldn’t pull off the all-important final lift – with Arg taking on the role of Baby, played by Jennifer Gray in the popular film.
Within hours, the clip had racked up thousands of likes, with Arg captioning it, “The baby and Johnny you didn’t know you needed! How would we have done in the competition? 😂 #TheRealDirtyDancing 💃🏽🕺 🏻.”
He added: “The end 😂 God loves a judge 🕺🏽.”
Fans loved the attempt, with one comment: “Aaaah, the REAL baby and Johnny!! 😂”
Another posted: “I really needed a laugh, thanks guys.”
The series reached an emotional climax and many said they were in tears watching James and Anthea Turner in the finale with Lee and Saffron.
People spotted Blue Lee singer and Strictly Come Dancing star Saffron messing up their lift, and said Towie star Arg and TV presenter Anthea had been ‘robbed’ of the title.
It was up to the studio audience who would win, with Arg and Anthea losing the crown.
But looking back at home, one person exclaimed on Twitter: “Nooo arg and anthea were robbed! That elevator.”
Another wrote: “Didn’t expect to like #RealDirtyDancing but it’s been great.
“Catching up to the final which was brilliant, but Anthea and Arg were the winners for me.”
Fans had been captivated by Arg’s chemistry with Anthea from the start.
They were hysterical as they watched Arg’s excitement at the prospect of kissing and dancing with ‘one woman for him’ Anthea in a steamy scene from the classic film.
One fan wrote: “Arg is dying of excitement inside right now. HE JUST KISSED ANTHEA TURNER.”
Another said: “Why aren’t @RealJamesArgent and @AntheaTurner1 together? You are CAAAAUUUUUUTE.”
A third added: “Woohoooo arg and Anthea love it.”
And last week Real Dirty Dancing viewers were in tears over Arg and Anthea’s powerful performance.
