Taking a break from his latest endeavour, at a bootcamp in Ibiza, Arg revealed he has lost 2st and is feeling "handsome", adding that he has been too busy to get in touch with his ex.

In a new video posted on the official TOWIE Facebook page, Arg says: "I haven't had any contact with Lydia at all. I've just been so so busy cracking on and focusing on myself.

"I'm doing extremely well and having a whale of a time. I'm in the zone. Life is good at the moment. I'm happy and I feel like I'm a good person to be around."

Teenage sweethearts Lydia and Arg broke up in early May, following the most current series of TOWIE. Despite only recently looking for a family home to buy, Lydia later said she had "no choice" but to walk away, blaming Arg's partying.

Since then, Lydia has enjoyed holidays in both Bali and Las Vegas, while Arg enrolled in bootcamps in Norfolk and Ibiza.

And he is still not finished.

"I've lost just over 2st so far - I'm happy with my progress, but I'm nowhere near where I want to be," he continued.

"Ideally, I want to be in the region of 14st 13lbs. I've been just near it once before and that was when I was at my most attractive."

Arg adds: "Bootcamp is extremely strict, it's all about discipline. I do sometimes try to sneak contraband in, and sometimes I try and escape, but I always get caught.

"i'm feeling good, feeling happy and feeling handsome."
