The 'Only Way is Essex' star feels like he's back on track now that he's completed his treatment programme in rehab for his partying addiction and he now feels ready to focus on his turbulent relationship with the bubbly blonde.

Speaking to OK! magazine, he said: "My programme finished a few weeks ago and I'm feeling so much better. I've got my life back in order and I'm ready to step up and be the man Gemma deserves. I feel like I'm back to my old self again. I was in a bad place but luckily Gemma and my family made me realise that I needed help before I lost everything. Things are looking good now and I'm feeling very positive about the future. I'm hoping to return to 'TOWIE' soon and Gemma and I are looking to get our own show together too."

The couple split up in July - just weeks before Arg, 30, sought help at a facility in London - and Gemma can already see a huge change in him.

She explained: "I think James appreciates our relationship a lot more now. I don't take any nonsense and I think the fact I didn't give up on him has made him realise how much I care about him."

Now that their relationship is "stronger than ever" the pair are looking into buying their first home together - and the 37-year-old beauty hopes to see an engagement ring on her finger soon because she's not "getting any younger."

She said: "We're in the process of buying our first house together. It's early

days but we've started looking at a few places in Essex so fingers crossed we'll be moving into somewhere later this year.

"I'm not getting any younger so James needs to start thinking about proposing soon! It doesn't have to be in the next few months, but I won't hang around forever. I'm the GC at the end of the day, I won't stand for a single solitaire diamond - I want something unique."
