Lydia Bright has told James 'Arg' Argent that she is not ready for a relationship and just wants to be friends.

The TOWIE lovebirds have had us all hoping they would reconcile their romance as they have been getting pretty close lately, but last night (23 July) a tearful Lydia told Arg their recent "whirlwind" has got too much for her.

Earlier this week, Arg told everyone he and Lydia had slept together twice and at Leah Wright's wedding, the crooner had hoped to clear up his relationship status with his former flame.

TOWIE: Lydia Bright speaks to James 'Arg' Argent following his chat with her mum.
Episode airs: 23 July 2014.


Arg grabbed Lydia for a chat in the hope to clear up their relationship status.

In last night's episode, Arg and Lydia battled with their feelings only for Lydia to tell Arg the pair are just friends.

As he attempted to find out where he stands with his ex-girlfriend, Arg questioned why Lydia wouldn't make a go of things if being with him is making her happy.

He said: "I think it would be ridiculous for us to ignore the fact that there are feelings there on both parts. Whenever I'm with you out, you won't let me touch you or kiss you, but whenever it's just you and me we don't stop kissing and cuddling.

"You're worrying too much...If I'm making you so happy why are you letting everyone else affect your life?"

But shooting himself in the foot, Lydia told Arg his 'bed bragging' ways had made her think twice about jumping back into a relationship with him.

Lydia wasn't too happy with James after his 'bed bragging' to his friends.

"You tell everybody everything, you've got the biggest mouth in Essex...I don't want the whole world knowing. Every step I take, everyone questions it because everyone knows about it. I hate it", she said.

Feeling "suffocated" by everyone interfering in her love life, Lydia said she feels "rushed to make a decision on something she doesn't even know yet".

The Essex beauty, still hurt from the couple's split two years ago, blamed Arg for not "playing things right" in his bid to win her back.

She said: "The end of our relationship was basically about trust and I'm saying to you please can you keep this between us and then you're going and telling everyone my business. Well really that's not the right step, is it Arg?"

Apologising to Lydia for not keeping things between them private, Arg said:

"I'm sorry… I probably don't think at times, say the right things, do the right things but it boils down to the fact that I get so excited about it because I do love you."

A heartbroken Arg was left disappointed as Lydia told him she just wants to be friends.

Not ready for a relationship, Lydia insisted that she and Arg can't carry on the way they are. A visibly emotional Lydia told her ex that lately they had got caught up in the moment and they "need to go back to being friends".

Left disappointed after his talk hadn't quite gone the way he planned, a heartbroken Arg retorted: "I don't think you could ever just call us friends."

Now back home in Essex, will Arg keep fighting for his girl and prove to Lydia she can trust him?
