James Argent, 35, is reportedly 'heartbroken' after splitting from his 19 year old girlfriend Stella Turian.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star had been dating the law student since June 2022 and even hinted at marriage last month, but it seems their love story has now come to an end.
Despite enjoying romantic trips to Venice, Verona and Lake Garda together, sources close to James say he's devastated as things suddenly fell apart.
Despite the challenges of a long-distance relationship, James – who's had his fair share of heartbreak in the past – managed to make it work for a while.
A source told MailOnline: "Throughout the summer it became increasingly difficult for them to meet up due to their work commitments.
"There are no hard feelings between them, they still follow each other on Instagram, and James is even invited to come out to ski with Stella and her family early next year."
The source continued: "They made lasting memories, travelling around the most romantic parts of Italy together and Stella visited London for the first time to see James, but for now they have mutually agreed that their relationship is over."
Just weeks ago, Arg had hinted at long-term plans for their relationship as he shared with the publication: "I have been seeing an Italian girl for a while now.
"Her name is Stella, she lives in Italy, we met and became friends and it just snowballed from there. We are doing the long distance at the moment but it is working for us.
"She is beautiful and I am really happy. I would love to get married one day. It's a bit early right now but who knows I could be singing at my own wedding one day."
During his appearance on This Morning earlier this year, Arg spoke warmly about his relationship with Stella. He shared details of their first meeting – and how he wooed her with romantic movie night dates.
He said on the ITV daytime show back in June: "I've got a new girlfriend. She looks like a young Sophia Loren or Monica Bellucci. She lives in northern Italy. She's very special. She's a great woman."
Show host Dermot O'Leary joked that Arg was 'punching' by dating the younger model, while the reality star himself confessed: "Lord know's how I done it. I think she thought I was an English Michael Buble when we met. That's what I tried to tell her, anyway."
