The Only Way is Essex star Lydia Bright has assured fans that there's "no drama" between herself and ex-boyfriend James Argent following on from their unexpected reunion at Good Morning Britain earlier this week.

The former couple bumped into each other backstage at the ITV studios on Monday (May 6) as they both appeared on GMB – Arg in his new showbiz role, and Lydia to promote season 2 of her family's chart-topping podcast The Brights.

And now, thanks to that podcast, Lydia has shared exactly how that reunion went down in real time, and it really wasn't as dramatic as you might have thought.

It started with hugs and kisses all around, before Lydia's dad Dave reminded Arg that he still owed him a curry and Lydia admitted that she thought Arg would be the one interviewing them.

"I thought, 'This is going to be so awkward'," she said, only for Arg to reassure her by replying: "No, I'm not quite there yet."

In fact, the only awkward moment came when Lydia asked if Arg had been listening to their podcast, only for her ex to admit that he hadn't quite got round to it yet.
