    James Argent has reportedly been left 'heartbroken' after splitting from his 19-year-old law student girlfriend.

    The 35-year-old former The Only Way Is Essex star had been in a relationship with Stella Turian since June 2022. But it's said the pair have gone their separate ways.

    Break-up reports have surprised fans, as just a few weeks ago Arg was dropping wedding hints. Things appeared to be heating up as they travelled to the likes of Venice, Verona and Lake Garda in Italy together.

    But sources close to the star say they've mutually agreed to call it quits and that the TOWIE star is upset by it even if he knows it's for the best. James – devastated by previous failed romances to long term girlfriend Lydia Bright – managed to make things work despite being in a long-distance relationship.

    "Throughout the summer it became increasingly difficult for them to meet up due to their work commitments," a source told MailOnline. "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.

    "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." Arg dropped hints he was planning for a golden wedding anniversary for their relationship just weeks ago.

    Last month he said in an interview: "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."

    Arg spoke fondly about his relationship with Stella during an appearance on This Morning earlier this year, sharing the details of their first meeting – and how he wooed her with romantic film 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 Belluci. She lives in northern Italy. She's very special. She's a great woman. Lord knows how I done it. I think she thought I was an English Michael Bublé when we met. That's what I tried to tell her, anyway.”
