The pair had split up over cheating claims and it's now been suggested that Lydia doesn't want to take him back.
But according to so-called 'pals', Lydia reckons it was the only way she'd be invited back onto the show.
A supposed friend of Lydia told The Sun newspaper yesterday: The truth is she’s not into him at all.
"She regretted quitting, and they are a power couple."
They added: “Everyone loves the on-off drama of their romance. She has a mortgage, a car to keep and her business to run.”
The newspaper reports that Lydia insisted the relationship was genuine but also revealed that the pair and split up, again.
