They called time on their romance five years ago, but now James Argent is reportedly trying to win back his ex Lydia Bright.

The reality star, who recently showed off his weight loss after undergoing gastric surgery, is said to have met up with his ex on several occasions over the last few weeks and is reportedly hoping for a reconciliation.

A source told The Sun: "The pair have started to meet up and Arg is very keen to start something up again.

"Lydia is a little more coy though. It's something Arg wants to happen as she was the love of his life."

A second source told the publication: "Arg is trying to work his way back in but Lydia isn't daft. Arg has had issues and she's a mum now.

"This weight loss battle is a good way for Arg to prove to Lydia he's a new man and all that is behind him."

OK! Online have contacted Arg and Lydia's representatives for a comment.

The former couple first began dating when they were teenagers and viewers saw the ups and downs of their eight-year relationship on The Only Way is Essex.

In April, Arg, now 33, spoke about how close he and Lydia, 30, were and how she was helping him shift the pounds after his life-changing gastric surgery.

He told The Sun: "Me and Lydia are extremely close again – we have kept that low-key and behind closed doors.

"Obviously she's had a beautiful baby and she's a single mother now. We were together years before TOWIE existed or before either of us were in the public eye.

"She's a real friend and she and her mum have been an incredible support for me.

"I'm very fond of Lydia. I'm lucky to have her in my life and for us to be such close friends," he explained.

The news comes after Arg's other ex Gemma Collins, who admitted she was 'very poorly' recently, reunited with her former partner Rami Hawash, 48.

Gemma, 40, and Rami got engaged in 2013 but went on to split just a year later. Gemma got back together with Rami briefly in 2017 but they decided they were better off as pals.
