Arg believes he is ready for a more mature relationship now
‘Initially I didn’t handle it too well – it was a shock to the system – but after I had some time to think, I was fine,’ Arg, 26, admits.
‘I’d been avoiding her at all costs, but it was really nice to see her. We’re both in Marbella in the summer, so maybe we’ll have a face-to-face chat and the Lydia and Arg journey will continue.’
Lydia will always be special to Arg.
‘She was my first love. I lost my virginity to her and haven’t met one girl who’s matched her,’ he says. ‘I’m not gonna lie, her coming back has motivated me to get down the gym and look good.
‘I’m more mature now and I’ve got a lot out of my system. When we were last together, it was amazing but I was too young.’
