James Argent plans private proposal to Lydia Bright

James 'Arg ' Argent is planning a private proposal to Lydia Bright.

'The Only Way is Essex' co-stars are "very much" on as a couple after dating on and off on since the ITV's show debut in 2010.

The couple have openly talked about marriage, and although Arg isn't quite ready to pop the question, when he does it will be a private moment between just him and Lydia.

Discussing a possible proposal on 'Loose Women', the 28-year-old part-time singer said: "No, (it's not happened) as of yet. I need the right time and place. I promised Lydia if I were to ever do it, it would be nice and private, no cameras around, a nice little intimate moment."

The 'Bella Sorella' founder - who called off her engagement to former co-star Tom Kilbey in 2013 - voiced her disappointment at not being asked to be 'Mrs Argent' yet.

She said: "I have been waiting for so long for this day to happen and it's not coming."

However, plans for a future together are indefinitely on the pair's mind, as they have already discussed potential family plans and are contemplating fostering children - just like Lydia's mother.

Debbie Bright has fostered over 240 children in the last three decades and Arg and Lydia are both keen to help disadvantaged youngsters.

Arg said: "We had a conversation recently and we said potentially in the future, when we are a bit older and have a family home and stuff, fostering is definitely something we would consider."
