Arg was snapped at the front door of his house in a bright pink fleecy dressing gown that may have been intended for Lydia.

Bleary-eyed and looking rather downcast, Arg answered the door to his good friend Joey Essex, who has been trying to pick Arg out of his doldrums since the split.

In jeans, a black jumper and a grey flat
cap, he bounced up and down on the porch to keep warm but also managed
to make Arg laugh.

Later that day, Arg got himself showered and dressed and headed to the Festival Place Shopping Centre, in Basingstoke in Hampshire.

He was later seen walking down the
road clutching his purchases, possibly on his way to see Lydia, although
that might have been an ill-advised visit.

Because Lydia, who was snapped house
hunting in Essex today, was left devastated this week when she heard
reports that Arg had cheated on her.
