The 'Only Way Is Essex' hunk has reportedly already passed his theory test in preparation for appearing on the second series of the E4 reality show, which aims to teach celebrity participants how to drive in a week-long intensive course.

A source said: "Arg is really nervous about the week of intensive driving lessons, he has struggled with lessons in the past."

The 30-year-old reality favourite is thought to be heading on the show at the request of his girlfriend and fellow 'TOWIE' star Gemma Collins, who wants her beau to be able to "drive her around for a change".

The insider added to The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "But Gemma really wants him to pass because she loves cars and thinks it would make their lifestyle much better so he could drive her around for a change."

Arg has taken his driving test at least once before, as the star found out his test result on camera six years ago and joked to Lydia Bright - who was his girlfriend at the time - that they should "get the bus home" following his driving blunder.

His decision to get behind the wheel on national television isn't the only thing that has been influenced by Gemma either, as he recently revealed the 37-year-old star encouraged him to strip off for the 'Full Monty' charity show.

He said: "I wouldn't have been able to do it if it wasn't for Gemma. She was fully behind me from the beginning. She seems to like me just the way I am. She doesn't want me to change and that makes me feel good - I appreciate her a lot.

"Gem definitely motivated me. She told me to be confident, to enjoy it and to own it. She told me that I had to do it and that it wasn't about me but the bigger picture. She helped to put it into perspective."
