Argent reportedly spoke to show bosses about signing up, with a source telling The Sun: “The Dancing on Ice bosses are keen on him too after Gemma's success on the show - she made it the most talked about show this year.
"James has been bowled over by how much weight Gemma has lost since being on the show - he is raring to go and told them he wants to be partnered up with Brandee Malto."
The source added that Argent was bowled over by how the show benefited Collins’ health and aided her two-stone weight loss.
A representative for Dancing on Ice told the Standard: "Talks haven't begun for the next series of Dancing on Ice."
Standard Online has contacted representatives of James Argent for comment.
The comments come after Collins was quizzed on the possibility of Argent joining the show during her appearance on Monday's This Morning.
She said: “Absolutely. I want him to do it. He really wants to get his fitness back. Obviously, he's been back in recovery for six months. He's doing so well and this will be the next thing to get his health and fitness back."
Speaking directly to the show bosses, Collins said: "Please book him for the show because I want him to know everything I went through."
Collins also addressed her public spat with judge Jason Gardiner, who made several comments about her weight, and admitted she had been left “embarrassed” by the situation.
She told how she "regrets" the harsh exchange of words but felt like she had to "stand her ground against body shaming".
