TOWIE stars Lydia Bright and James Arg Argent couldn't have looked happier as they stepped out hand-in-hand in their hometown of Essex over the weekend.

On Saturday (22 August), the reality star couple soaked up the sunshine while attending the launch of their friend's restaurant, Rare Cow, in Waltham Abbey.

Looking every inch the loved-up pair on their arrival, Lydia and Arg were all smiles together. While Essex boy Arg embraced the warm weather in tailored shorts and a yellow pinstriped shirt, Lydia cut an effortlessly glam figure in her casual white maxi dress.

She teamed her summery number with a pair of tasselled espadrilles on her feet and aviator shades, sweeping her luscious blonde locks into a gorgeous ponytail. While checking out Essex's hot new eatery, Lydia and her beau tweeted to tell fans they were having a "lovely time" together.

We've no doubt the pair were loving being back in each other's company after spending some time apart lately. Shortly after jetting to Ibiza, Lydia headed on holiday for a second time, joining her family in Italy.

The starlet recently returned to the UK and on having his girlfriend back again, Arg was quick to tell fans he had missed Lydia "so much". N'awww!

Despite their romance enduring a rocky road at stages, Lydia and Arg have proved lately they are now blissfully happy together.

After splitting several times throughout their on/off relationship, fans of TOWIE will know the childhood sweethearts finally decided to give their romance another go earlier this year.

Since then, Lydia and Arg have taken the next step in their relationship and the pair are now living together in Lydia's Essex home. With things seeming pretty serious between the two, the couple have continuously been surrounded by speculation they will wed.

And while Lydia has openly admitted she wants to marry Arg, she has insisted she and her co-star boyfriend won't be tying the knot just yet.

"I definitely see [marriage] happening in the future... but marriage won't be anytime soon," she said.

Lydia and Arg recently celebrated seven years of dating. On marking their milestone, 25-year-old Lydia gushed: "We battled some storms and jumped many hurdles. But despite everything we made it this far.

"You love me unconditionally, charm everyone with your infectious personality and make me the person I am today. Love you always and forever."
