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
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
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
