The former The Only Way Is Essex star, who dated Arg for seven years before splitting, was appearing on Jamie Laing’s podcast when she made the joke about her ex.
Lydia, 29, was discussing her favourite animals when Jamie said an elephant best describes her partner in life.
The TV star replies: “So what it’s an elephant? Big and round. Maybe if I was still with Arg!”
Lydia then giggles before moving on with the questions.
Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Arg revealed his determination to shed weight and overhaul his lifestyle before being warned about the implications of weight gain by resident doctor, Dr Ranj Singh.
Dr Ranj said: “Arg, everything I’m about to say I say out of love but it’s tough love. You know you’re significantly over weight, we measured you earlier and we weighed you and your BMI is 44 which means you’re significantly obese and you’re at risk long term of things like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
“So looking at your measurements you actually long term need to lose 10 stone to get your BMI back towards that normal range and you need to lose 17 inches around your waist.“

Reacting to the information, Gemma Collins’ on-off boyfriend appeared determined to slim down once and for all.
He said: “I’ve done it before so I can do it again.
“I think whereas before it’s kind of all or nothing. I might walk away from this studio today and all of a sudden I’m near on starving myself and I’m training three times day and it’s all very drastic and quick and I know that isn’t the way of going about it.”
