'The Only Way is Essex' star James 'Arg' Argent wants to shed the pounds ahead of the cast's annual trip to Marbella, Spain, this summer where he plans to woo his ex-girlfriend Lydia Rose Bright
James 'Arg' Argent is getting fit in a bid to win over ex-girlfriend Lydia Bright.
'The Only Way Is Essex' star was left in shock when his first love - who left the show in 2012 - made a surprise return in Wednesday night's series finale (02.04.14), and now he wants to shed the pounds ahead of the cast's annual trip to Marbella, Spain, where he plans to woo her.
Arg told The Sun newspaper: "I've got a new motivation at the moment. When you see your ex-girlfriend, whether you get back with her or not, you want to look good.
"When it comes to Marbella I want to have a good body, I want to be confident. I want to be walking around Puerto Banus like I own the place!"
Arg recently revealed in his new book, 'Living It Arg', that he cheated on Lydia with former 'TOWIE' co-star Amy Childs towards the end of their four year relationship.
He admits that sharing a kiss with Amy at an ITV party is still his biggest regret and that if given another chance, his maturity would make him a better boyfriend to Lydia.
He explained: "I'm single at the moment, I suppose she is. I'm in a lot stronger position and better place than what I was and I like to think I'm more mature than when I was with Lydia when I was too young."
Meanwhile, Arg claims Lydia has not yet been "100 per cent" confirmed for future series, but he will be "prepared" if she does return for good.
