James Argent is taking his relationship to the next level as he and his girlfriend Stella Turian are reportedly set to move in together.

The TOWIE star, 34, recently flew his 18-year-old actress girlfriend to Essex to meet his friends and family for the first time, according to The Sun.

It comes after MailOnline revealed how James had ‘taken things to the next level’ with stunning Stella by jetting off to get the seal of approval from her parents in Italy.

Now James has returned the gesture and brought Stella to meet his own parents, who were reportedly ‘bowled over’ by the actress.

One insider told the publication: ‘They all think she’s great, and everyone is just so pleased to see James so happy; no one has seen him smile like this in years, and he’s in a really good place at the moment.

‘Stella is enjoying her trip, especially because it means she gets to spend time with James. No one would be surprised if she’d moved over at some point in the not too distant future to be with him.  

‘Things have moved really quickly between them. At first James was worried about what people might think about the 15-year age gap. But no-one cares, and neither do James or Stella now. They’re just looking forward to a future together.’

MailOnline have contacted James’ representatives for comment. 

As well as carving out a career as an actress Stella has a blossoming friendship with Italian footy WAG Michela Persico. 

Michela and husband, Juventus star Daniele Rigani, are often referred to as the Italian ‘Posh and Becks’.

‘Stella has her own career, her own ambitions and her own dreams and James loves that about her,’ our source said.

‘There might be 16 years between them but the age gap really hasn’t been an issue for either of them.’

Mail Online also understands that James’ relationship has won the approval of his ex Gemma Collins.

‘James and Gemma remain friends,’ the pal said. ‘She’s happy he’s found someone who makes him smile as much as she is right now.’

We revealed last month how James is also planning to whisk Stella away on a romantic holiday, probably to Dubai, before the end of the year.

He recently posted a picture on Instagram showing him swimming in the sea in Positano in Italy’s Costa D’amalfi, captioning: ‘That’s Amore’.

Stella travelled to Marbella recently to support James, who was performing with his band at Olivia’s La Cala restaurant.

James met Stella, who would have been six-years-old when he first appeared on TOWIE in 2010, while he was in Mykonos attending a friend’s wedding.

Stella appears in the film Infiniti, which screened at this year’s Venice Film Festival while the jetsetter was also at the Monaco Grand Pix this summer.
