Throughout their rocky four year relationship, Lydia Bright always loved James 'Arg' Argent no matter what his size.
But after the wedding singer has lost 3 stone and given himself an Essex makeover, he was hoping to win his ex back.
Unveiling his new look to Lydia and their fellow Only Way Is Essex co-stars in the first episode of the fifth series, she was clearly impressed.
