Ly­dia Bright’s ‘for­ever’ boyfriend

Af­ter seven years of be­ing on/off with James ‘Arg’ Ar­gent, for­mer TOWIE star Ly­dia Bright knows she’ll be ‘to­gether for ever’ with her boyfriend of a year Lee Cronin

Reveal - - CONTENTS - Kimberley Bond

She once called James ‘Arg’ Ar­gent ‘the love of her life’, with the tri­als and tribu­la­tions of the two­some’s re­la­tion­ship once at the heart of TOWIE.

But things have changed dras­ti­cally for Ly­dia Bright, two years af­ter she called time on their seven-year dal­liance.

While Arg, 30, is now hap­pily see­ing 37-year-old meme queen Gemma Collins, 28-year-old Ly­dia has bagged her very own prince in the shape of busi­ness­man Lee Cronin.

They met last year, in Ibiza at a club night, and have re­cently moved in to­gether. Now, a clearly thrilled Ly­dia be­lieves her 31-year-old boyfriend is her hubby-to-be…

HOW ARE THINGS BE­TWEEN YOU AND YOUR HAND­SOME BEAU, LEE? We’re very much in love. We’re still in the honeymoon pe­riod. I’m in a very happy place with him, and I’m so glad to have Lee in my life.

DO YOU FEEL AS THOUGH LEE IS MOST DEF­I­NITELY THE ONE?

He def­i­nitely is. We clicked so eas­ily. We never ar­gue. We’re like best friends, and I wouldn’t want to be with any­one else. In my head, I think he’s go­ing to be with me for ever.

DO YOU SEE MAR­RIAGE AND BA­BIES IN THE FU­TURE WITH LEE?

I def­i­nitely want that, but there isn’t any rush. I don’t want to feel like we’ve missed out on spe­cial mo­ments – just us two.

HOW DOES LEE COM­PARE TO PAST RE­LA­TION­SHIPS? There’s not really any com­par­i­son. It was love at first sight with me and Lee. Nei­ther of us wanted re­la­tion­ships be­fore, but then we met and it felt right.

WHY DID YOU

CHOOSE TO

KEEP YOUR RE­LA­TION­SHIP PRI­VATE FOR SO LONG? Lee is a pri­vate person. He is re­spected in his world, so it’s some­thing he didn’t want to in­ter­fere with his work. I don’t think we wanted the pres­sure. When I was with Arg, we only ever heard neg­a­tive things about our re­la­tion­ship. I wanted to make cer­tain Lee and I were go­ing to be to­gether for ever be­fore I told peo­ple.

WOULD YOU EVER CON­SIDER RE­TURN­ING TO TOWIE?

I don’t think so. I don’t know what I would really of­fer to the show. I’m in a new chap­ter of my life.

YOU’RE LOOK­ING AMAZ­ING! WHAT’S YOUR WORK­OUT REGIME? I’ve al­ways been com­mit­ted to train­ing. Lee’s really into the gym as well, so we do cir­cuits or weight train­ing to­gether. My

body has changed

– I used to be nat­u­rally slim, but now I’ve built more mus­cle, and I’m prob­a­bly the most toned I’ve ever been.

WOULD YOU EVER CON­SIDER HAV­ING ANY SURGERY DONE?

I would never go un­der the knife un­less I had to. You have to have a big in­se­cu­rity to want to change some­thing, and I’ve never been like that.

ARE YOU FEEL­ING BODY CON­FI­DENT THIS SUM­MER? I’m feel­ing really con­fi­dent! I’ve never really had that many hang-ups with my body, be­cause I’ve al­ways worked out. Now I’m the hap­pi­est I’ve ever been.

TELL US ABOUT THE POLO AT THE MANOR EVENT…

It’s a really great event for me and my fam­ily to go along to. I’m look­ing for­ward to watch­ing the polo and en­joy­ing the af­ter-party, which is al­ways amaz­ing. We’re thor­oughly spoilt and we will be over-in­dulging. Ly­dia Bright will be mak­ing a VIP ap­pear­ance at Polo at the Manor at Celtic Manor Re­sort this Satur­day. Tick­ets to the event can be pur­chased at celtic-manor. com/whats-on/polo-at-the­manor
