Gemma Collins has said she can't bear to be in the same room as Arg, following their split.
The TOWIE couple were seen calling it a day when the show returned to ITV2 last month.
"I honestly wasn't sure whether we had fully broken up until two weeks ago when we started filming TOWIE again, and then I was forced to come clean about the break up on the show," Gemma admitted this week.
She told Closer magazine: "Until then, I still had feelings for Arg that's why, instead, I lied about us still being together."
Meanwhile Arg insisted that he still cares for Gemma, despite dumping her.
He said: "I rushed into things after my split from Lydia. I wasn't ready for a serious relationship and, sadly, it just didn't work with Gemma."
The Only Way Is Essex continues tonight on ITV2.
