Mark Wright's best friend James 'Arg' Argent doesn't believe he is over his split from Lauren Goodger yet
Mark Wright is still "heartbroken" over his split from Lauren Goodger.
The 24-year-old hunk's best pal James 'Arg' Argent explained the 'Only Way Is Essex' star - who split from his former fiancee in August after 10 years of on-off dating - insists Mark wanted to settle down and marry Lauren, which is why the split has hit him hard.
He said: "Mark is devastated. He's absolutely heartbroken. He and Lauren have broken up a few times over the years, sometimes over silly things, sometimes bigger things, but I've seen him heartbroken many times because of that relationship.
"They really love each other but unfortunately the stress of all the arguing took over. Lauren was the girl he wanted to marry. He's really down at the moment."
However, Arg is pleased Mark has quit the ITV2 reality show to enter the Australian jungle for 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' because it will give him the opportunity to clear his head.
He added in an interview with OK! magazine: "I'm glad he's in the jungle so he can escape from it all. I'm really proud of him because he's not finding it easy. This has hit him bad."
