Stronger than ever: The Only Way Is Essex stars Lydia Bright and James 'Arg' Argent showed they are back together with a loving display while on holiday in Marbella this week
Thousands of The Only Way Is Essex fans were left devastated when James 'Arg' Argent and Lydia Bright revealed they had split earlier this year.
But now it seems the couple have put their differences behind them and rekindled their relationship.
Lydia and Arg showed they are stronger than ever by putting on a loving display while on holiday in Marbella, kissing and cuddling as they relaxed in the sunshine.
Kisses and cuddles: Arg looked smitten with Lydia as he struggled to keep his hands off her while they relaxed int the jacuzzi
Wearing a tiny red polka dot bikini and a white cowboy hat, it was little wonder Arg struggled to keep his hands off his svelte girlfriend.
The couple made the most of their time off together, and enjoyed a relaxing dip in the pool as well as the jacuzzi at The Sisu Boutique Hotel and Spa in Puerto Banus.
The breakdown of Lydia and Arg's relationship was shown on the second series of The Only Way Is Essex, following a series of arguments stemming from Lydia's belief that Arg was cheating on her.

And despite his insisting that he had been entirely faithful, Lydia decided Arg didn't treat her well enough, and ended the relationship.
But Arg refused to accept that it was over, attempting to win Lydia back with flowers and heartfelt phone calls.
In the finale of season two of The Only Way Is Essex, Arg was seen pleading with Lydia to give him another chance, after she arrived at Mark Wright's pool party with another man.

Now it seems Arg's determination to win back his girl has paid off, as he confirmed on Twitter earlier this week that the pair were back together.
He wrote on his Twitter page: 'Very proud of my beautiful GIRLFRIEND @LydiaRoseBright.'
A proud Arg then added: 'We're back together guys!'
The next series of The Only Way Is Essex is due to start on ITV2 this autumn.
