The Only Way Is Essex exes James 'Arg' Argent and Lydia Bright have reportedly been 'meeting up in secret'.

Arg and Lydia dated on and off for almost a decade between 2008 and 2016.

They both went on to date other people but have always maintained a close friendship. It is understood that James and Lydia are both single at the moment, but perhaps not for long.

A source told MailOnline : "James and Lydia have been spending a lot of time together in recent weeks.

"They became friends again at the beginning of the year but now they're starting to develop more serious feelings for each other."

Representatives for Lydia and James have been approached by The Mirror for comment.

The insider also claimed that Arg 'never stopped' loving his ex-girlfriend while he is still seen as family to Lydia.

Arg and Lydia were previously pictured together at the wedding of Natasha Argent in July.

The duo beamed from ear to ear as they posed for a picture alongside Lydia's daughter Loretta. They also spoke to lots of family members and enjoyed a stunning ceremony in Woodford.

An insider at the wedding had revealed to The Sun that the ex-couple still had some 'chemistry' that was visible when they recently reunited.

"Arg and Lydia made a lovely partnership at the wedding and seemed really close," a source told the publication.

"There is clearly chemistry between them and their bond goes back years so it’s obvious they have something special."
