James and Stella, who have a 16-year age gap, took their relationship to the next level in October as they jetted out to spend time with Stella’s family in Italy.

And last week, James admitted that their early romance involved him wooing her with Mafia movies in his home cinema.

He also recalled how they ‘serenaded each other’ when they first met by chance at a restaurant in Greece in June, before then pursuing a romantic relationship.

Speaking to The Sun, Arg branded Stella ‘extremely intelligent, very talented and beautiful’ as he gushed over his partner.

He said: ‘I feel very lucky, sometimes I have to pinch myself to remind myself this is all really happening.’

Arg also told how he wooed his new girlfriend, revealing: ‘I’m lucky enough to have a home cinema — there have to be some perks to being in showbiz — and I’m obsessed with Mafia films, so I made her watch Goodfellas and some Sopranos and Casino too.’

The reality star – who’s trouble past is widely documented – insisted he has been completely up front with Stella about the ‘ups and downs’ he’s had. 

Arg met Stella by chance at a lavish restaurant called Nammos, while he was in Mykonos, Greece in June for a friend’s wedding.

He said they ‘serenaded each other’ as he reminisced of how he showed her clips of himself singing Rat Pack songs, while she showed him clips of her singing Italian love songs.

Arg said Stella gave his mic skills her ‘seal of approval’ after they exchanged numbers and sent each other videos of themselves singing.

Despite meeting just once in Mykonos, they then spent the summer messaging and FaceTiming.

Arg recalled how he eventually plucked up the courage to fly to Italy in September to see her and see if there was a romance to be had.

The TOWIE star confessed to being ‘incredibly ­nervous’ for fear that when they saw each other again, there might not be a romantic connection.

But thankfully, the second their eyes met again, he gushed over how they felt ‘an amazing link’ which has continued to develop. 

And after meeting each other’s families, Arg confirmed that they will spend Christmas together, but have no plans to move in together. Instead, they will focus on making their long-distance relationship work.
