In May, The Only Way Is Essex fans were shocked when it emerged that Lydia Bright and James ‘Arg’ Argent had split, with reports claiming she’d dumped him after he had allegedly relapsed.
The two dated on-and-off for seven years, with much of their relationship playing out on TOWIE.
Anyone hoping for a reunion might just be all out of luck though, as Lydia has now explained that the ex-couple are not in communication, though they will keep it civil for TOWIE filming.
Speaking to the MailOnline, she revealed: “We don’t communicate and I think that’s the best way for us. When you first break-up with someone I personally don’t think it’s a good to keep in contact.
“It wasn’t a very good break-up but obviously we have to work with each other so we will become amicable and civil for the sake of that. It is for good this time.”
Lydia is now embracing single life, explaining: “Single life is really good. I went away to Indonesia and Vegas. I just feel like it is what it is. You have to see it as the end of a chapter and the start of a new one and I’m just really enjoying my new chapter.
“I’m not looking for love, I’m just having fun being with my friends, being with my family and just enjoying myself. I’m not in any rush to move forward and if you sign up for a dating app you’re really looking for love and your soulmate but I’m just taking a bit of time out.
“I was with James on and off for seven years I’ve only been three months single so I just wanna enjoy myself.”
