Lydia told fans she is focusing on moving on from her break up, after we watched her and Arg come face-to-face for the first time since splitting on TOWIE's new series.

She took to Snapchat after TOWIE had aired on ITVBe and told her followers: "Thank you to everyone who watched the show, thanks for your lovely tweets. I've probably been getting the biggest response I've ever had on Twitter."

Lydia continued: "It was very much from the heart, a completely raw real episode for me. So thank you everyone for supporting my decisions and understanding. Now onwards and upwards. No more crying for the rest of the series and I'm looking forward to having so much fun now as a single girl."

News of Lydia and Arg's split surfaced in May, two months after Lydia had actually ended their relationship. She has said previously she had "no choice" but to split from Arg and viewers saw Lydia telling him that he had "let her down."

The pair are still yet to confirm the reasons behind their split, but Lydia called Arg out for being "selfish" and told him she gave him everything, but it wasn't enough.

Lydia said: "When I look at you, I'm angry but I feel really sad for you. You had everything you ever wanted: you got me back after all those years, we were getting a house, we were getting engaged, but nothing was ever good enough for you."

"I tried to support you and hold your hand through life. I gave you everything and you made me hate you... I just think moving on from now I deeply don't want us to ever be friends. You're not the kind of person I want to be in my life. I would like you to stay away from my friends and family."

She added: "I don't want you to try to find out what I'm up to or say hello to me. My life is my life now, and I'm getting on with it, we'll keep it that we're strangers. We will just walk past each other and that's how I would like it. I don't want to know you anymore."

After saying her piece, Lydia left Arg on the beach and viewers heard him break down in tears. Some fans criticised Lydia for being "too harsh" on her ex, but Arg later told his co-stars everything she had said to him had been true.

Following the episode, Lydia defended her decision to split with Arg and tweeted: "Only so many times you can support someone. On to the next chapter in my life. #TOWIE."

Arg, meanwhile, reassured fans that he is going to be ok.

He tweeted: "Ive never known my phone or social media to go this crazy, all I can say is thank you everyone! I'm going to be A OK x (sic)."
