Lydia Bright is dating again.
The former "The Only Way is Essex" star was left heartbroken last year when she split from her on/off boyfriend James "Arg" Argent following 10 years of on/off dating, but she's wasted no time getting back out there again as she has admitted she's been seeing men but "nothing serious" has happened to turn them into a permanent lover.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "I'm dating but nothing serious. I'm not ready for a baby. I think when you're with someone and you're settled you think about it. I'm not ready at the moment. When you meet with the right person you get broody."
And, although she's back on the dating scene, the 27-year-old beauty is adamant she'll always have a lot of respect for Arg and she wants to remain good friends with him.
She said previously: "Even though it didn't work, we had some good times and I've learned a lot. I look back and think, "We became famous together."
"We're friends but not overly friendly. I can't hold on to anger. You're never going to move on with that, it's bad energy."
However, even if the blonde beauty does manage to lock down a man in the near future, it'll be highly unlikely that their romance will play out on screen as she recently announced her decision to leave the ITVBe show in order to follow other ventures.
She explained: "I'm taking a break but I'd never say never to a return. We will see how things go. I just want to focus now on other things. If I had more friends on the show and more time, I would never rule out going back."
Lime Pictures - the production company who produce the show - previously confirmed they would welcome Lydia back to the show in the future if she wanted to go back.
