Lydia Bright is dating a mystery man.
The 'Only Way Is Essex' star has revealed she is now in a new relationship after meeting a man in Thailand.
She said: "I met him in Thailand. It's early days but we have been on four dates and we have kissed!"
The news of Lydia's boyfriend is sure to leave her on/off love interest and co-star James 'Arg' Argent heartbroken after they appeared to rekindle their relationship last year.
She added: "Me and Arg were together a long time. We will always have a special part in each other's lives. But he knows about my new man."
James - who was suspended from the ITV show and spent the festive period in rehab trying to get clean - is "making great progress" and there are hopes he will make his return during the new series.
An insider shared to The Sun newspaper: "Arg is making great progress and we are all really happy about that.
"But it is not just a case of him simply walking back onto the show. Before he left he was very disruptive and constantly late.
"Him being off the show still is part punishment for that, but he is expected to be back later in the new series."
Meanwhile, the 25-year-old television personality - who was sent 50 red roses on Valentine's Day by her mystery man - admitted the whole cast are "praying" for Arg's return.
She said previously: "He's doing really well at the moment... and we're all praying that he comes back sometime during this series."
