'Worst mistake of my life': Lydia Bright expresses regret over night of passion with ex James Argent on The Only Way Is Marbs... while he gushes it 'felt like a movie'

Having dated on and off for years, they finally called time on their relationship in May.

However things became far more complicated for Lydia Bright and James 'Arg' Argent, after they enjoyed a drunken night of passion on Sunday night's episode of The Only Way Is Marbs.

While 28-year-old Arg confessed he left feeling 'the happiest he had in 6 months', the 26-year-old blonde beauty called the dalliance the 'worst mistake of her life' - causing the pair to clash in the Spanish holiday hotspot.

Things started off stormy for the pair, with Arg revealing in the first part of the episode that he had sent cruel email messages to his former girlfriend.

Explaining to mates Diags and Dan Edgar, he said: 'Last time I saw Lydia face to face we agreed we’d be civil and it was alright but its changed since then.

'There were a couple of rumours she'd been with someone... I had so much hate, so I sent her a terrible email.’

Showing the message to his friends, the pair looked up in shock, admitting that it was one of 'the worst emails' they had ever read - before later admitting that the least offensive part was when he called the blonde 'a butters slut' (sic).

However the next day it was revealed that the pair had later spent the night together, after the fun-loving Essex lad comforted his crying ex in a nightclub. 

Talking to Gemma Collins about the event, Arg couldn't contain his happiness as he confessed: ‘When I left the hotel room, I felt so happy. I had the biggest smile on my face.

It just felt like a movie. I haven't felt as happy as that for the last 5 months.’

Yet, his blonde beauty did not appear to be on the same page as her former love, calling the night the 'worst mistake of my life' - causing a fractious atmosphere between the pair.

Speaking to Chloe Lewis by the pool, a hungover Lydia explained: 'Last night when I saw him he was talking to another girl…,' trailing off to indicate the result of their drunken meeting, before adding: And now I've made it 100 times worse.’ 

She continued: 'I would never ever get back with him but I just care for him.'

Delivering the blow: Lydia admitted to her ex-boyfriend: ¿To me it was just a drunken mistake, and I can't put it any more black and white'

Lydia's confessions on the episode confirm previous comments by Danielle Armstrong on Celebrity Juice this week - where she first revealed the pair had rekindled their romance in their Spanish home away from home.   

Confirming the reunion Danielle said: 'Yeah, I was honestly really shocked, I couldn’t believe it because I thought it was kind of finished.' 

She continued to explain to Keith Lemon: 'He really loves her and it’s really sad, I love Arg. It’s really hard when you’re altogether on holiday, there’s drink involved, your exes are there…

'I think he might have been talking to someone else and there was a little bit of… I don’t know. Anyway, they ended up sleeping together.'

The pair then came face-to-face at the Sisu Boutique Hotel pool party on Megan McKenna's birthday during the episode - where their situation worsened as they awkwardly discovered they had starkly different feelings.

Giving out the devastating blow, Lydia told a heartbroken Arg: ‘I was really drunk. I was really upset about the emails and I thought you were in a really unhappy place, holding onto anger towards me.’

Arg intercepted, pleading with her: ‘I just want to let you know I love you and I have done and I always will.’

But Lydia continued: ‘To me it was just a drunken mistake, and I can't put it any more black and white.'

Not what she seems: However Arg then threw a curveball - revealing the pair had also had sex the following day, questioning: 'Well then what's your excuse for the next afternoon?'

Becoming overwhelmed by the situation, Lydia made her escape from her ex, bidding him farewell by stating sadly: 'I feel like I've given you false hope and that upsets me, so I think I'm going to go home. I'm sorry.'  

Lydia split from on/off beau Arg back in May, when she discovered her man - who has previously battled issues with alcohol and drugs - had allegedly suffered a relapse after checking into rehab.

The pair had dated on and off for years until 2012, before they decided to give things another try in April 2015.

The couple's split has been far from amicable however, with the 26-year-old blonde telling Arg that she 'despised' him during a heated row on a beach in Majorca for the special episode The Only Way is Majorca, back in July.

She said of the break-up: 'For me there is no going back, we have been through a lot over the years. But I reached my limit the evening we broke up.'

Gave it their best shot: The pair had dated on and off for years until 2012, before they decided to give things another try in April 2015
