Former TOWIE star Lydia Bright brands ex James Argent as fat as an ’elephant’

FORMER Towie star Lydia Bright has branded her ex James ‘Arg’ Argent as fat as an “elephant” after he was pictured eating a salad.

She appeared on Made In Chelsea cast member Jamie Laing’s Private Parts podcast when he asked her what her two favourite animals are as part of a psychological test

Lydia chose an angel fish and an elephant which he told her described her as a person and how she perceives her partner respectively.

She responded: “So what it’s an elephant?

“Big and round – maybe if I was still with Arg.”

Her comments came as Arg tries to shed some weight and was caught eating a salad on the set of Celebs On The Farm which he is starring on alongisde Paul Merson, Hayley Hughes and Tina Malone.

Lydia and James dated on and off for six years and finally ended things for good in 2016.

A lot of the events, including finding out he had cheated on her with Amy Childs and his own fans, were played out on ITVBe show The Only Way Is Essex.

Lydia told Jamie how she would cry a lot as she spoke about it on TV.

The 5 Star Hotel star said: “I feel like it’s almost like when you’re cheated on you’re so angry but they’re the only one that can make you feel better and comfort you. You feel so rejected.

“I cried a lot for so many series. I was constantly crying. And that so isn’t my character.”

But the blonde beauty, now with Lee Cronin, had some nice words for Arg.

She insisted he is a “lovely” person but had a very short attention span.

Lydia said: “He’s a lovely person, he’s really funny. He is childlike. He’s like Peter Pan.

“He wasn’t my first boyfriend but yeah he was my first love. Like serious boyfriend.”
