TOWIE star Fran Parman has shared a throwback photo of herself and co-star boyfriend James Diags Bennewith from way back in the day.

We're talking way back before their romance had even began!

Spending her morning reminiscing, Fran came across the old photo of her and her beau pre-Friags, sharing it to Instagram for the couple's fans to see.

In the snap, the pair can be seen partying together inside a club. And while Diags is pictured looking like his usual smiley self, now-blonde Fran looks a tad different with her darker locks.

Alongside her photo, Fran said: "#tt me and @jamesbennewith1 before we was lovers can't believe how much I've let myself go since I've been in a relationship with you."

Let herself go?! Can't say we see it, Fran. She still looks just as fab to us!

The Essex beauty and Diags first began dating when Fran joined the TOWIE cast during its eleventh series. She initially began dating Tom Pearce, before realising it was actually Diags she had feelings for.

And TOWIE fans will never forget the moment Diags finally asked Fran out while dressed as a block of cheese (yes, really!). So romantic, eh!

Since then, love has blossomed for the pair and earlier this year, Fran and Diags celebrated their first anniversary as a couple - proving the TOWIE curse is nothing when it comes to their romance.

So far this series, Fran and Diags have been one of the only couples to steer clear of any Essex drama.

TOWIE stars Georgia Kousoulou and Tommy Mallet's relationship came under fire recently, after Ferne McCann accused Tommy of being disrespectful towards his girlfriend, and Danielle Armstrong and James Lock split following ongoing realtionship issues.

Fran and Diags, meanwhile, couldn't have looked more loved-up during the cast's trip to Marbella and the pair even had us thinking they were engaged, thanks to a suggestive picture involving Fran's wedding finger.

Sadly though, the pair won't be walking down the aisle just yet.

Childhood sweethearts Lydia and Arg are already talking marriage!

One TOWIE couple that might be, however, are Lydia Bright and James Arg Argent. Last night, viewers watched as Arg accidentally referred to Lydia as his "wife". Marriage on the mind, perhaps?!

The childhood sweethearts have made no secret of their desire to wed in the future and even Lydia's little sister Roma thinks they should hurry up and tie the knot.

When asked by Arg if she would like him to marry her big sis, Roma didn't waste any time saying yes. "You've been together seven years," she told him. "That's long enough!"

TOWIE continues Sunday 5 July at 10pm on ITVBe.
