When asked by one fan if herself and Arg ‘still speak’, Lydia confirmed that James was still in her life, five years after their break-up. 

Alongside a snap of James grinning at her baby girl, Lydia replied: ‘Yes, we are very good friends.

‘He has always remained best friends with my mum and younger brother Tommy.’ 

Lydia and James were childhood sweethearts who dated on and off between 2008 and 2016, before Lydia called things off for good after he allegedly relapsed into his cocaine habit.

Their fiery romance played out on screens on TOWIE, with the two briefly uniting for a night of passion on holiday in 2016, only for Lydia to discover he slept with Gemma Collins on the same day.

The star previously proved there was no  ill-feeling toward her former flame,  as she insisted that all she hopes for him is ‘happy and healthy’.

She told OK! magazine in 2017: ‘All I ever wish for him is to be happy and healthy. It never worked out with us, but he’s not a bad person. He’s got a good heart.

‘I always look back on us and think, I wouldn’t change a thing, because when it was good it was really, really good. I just know that it’s not what I want in the future.’

It comes after sources recently claimed James had rekindled his romance with James during his weight loss battle, six months after the pair split following a turbulent on-off romance.

James admitted he’d been feeling ‘lonely and bored’ since he and Gemma, 40, split as he revealed his plans to undergo life-saving weight loss surgery after ballooning to 26 stone.

A source said: ‘They are spending every waking moment together.’ 

They told The Sun: ‘James has supported Gemma through some tough times in these last few months and she’s doing the same with him with his battle with sobriety and his weight. 

‘They’re not shouting about it like they’ve done previously but they are inseparable right now and are properly an item again.’
