After cheating death in a car crash, Arg is making some changes this year...

There’s nothing like a near-death experience to get your priorities in order and it seems James Arg’ Argent, 23, has done just that.

The TOWIE star was involved in a car crash following an appearance in Dundee last month and after escaping unscathed he’s re-evaluating his priorities.

In addition to asking his girlfriend of three years Lydia Bright, 20, to move in with him, he’s thinking about their long-term future and has told friends he wants to propose.

Arg could’ve been seriously injured or worse,’ says our insider.

It’s really got him thinking about what he wants from his happily ever after.

‘They’ve both always said they’ll be together for ever.

‘Now he’s started wondering what they’re waiting for.

‘He told Lydia he felt lucky he wasn’t badly hurt and has taken it as a sign to start making things happen.

‘He’s saying he wants to seize the day and pop the question.’
