During last night's episode viewers saw Lydia reveal she and Ben had called time on their romance, while admitting she was "confused" about her real feelings for ex-boyfriend Arg.
When Arg found out, he tried his hardest not to grin at the news, but he has since revealed that it now makes it easier for a possible reunion.
Speaking in a video on the official TOWIE website, Arg said: "It wasn't really too much of a shock to the system hearing Lydia say she's single. I sort of felt it coming, but obviously yeah, I'm not going to say it's a bad thing."
Arg said that he will now look forward to spending more time with Lydia.
"Me and Lydia have always been flirty, but with or without being together, we're just having fun, it's nice," he revealed. "The fact that she's single makes it a bit easier if anything potentially was going to happen down the line, as friends or more, so who knows?"
In last night's episode, Lydia revealed to her mum Debbie and friend Lewis Bloor that she was having thoughts about her romance with Ben, who she met while travelling in Thailand.
She told her mum about Arg: "It's like a rollercoaster us two, half the time I don't even know. I don't think there's anyone that I get on better with than James and I care about him so much and we get on so well and have a laugh.
"God do we fight," she continued. "We're awful, we fight like cat and dog - but I always say the best times of my life are with James and the worst times of my life are with James. With Ben it's always so steady. It's a hard situation."
