"My friend Beckie picked me up and made out we weren't doing anything special, and as I walked into the room all my aunties, cousins and friends shouted 'surprise!' – I was in complete shock!"

Besides having her Suffolk wedding to plan, and a new Lipsy collection under her belt, the actress has also bagged a role in British drama 'Strangeways He We Come.

Speaking about her new acting role, she said: "I play a character called Demi, who is totally different to the characters I've played before, she has many insecurities as a young girl on the Salford estate she's from."

Looks like she's got it all! Hands up who wants to swap with Michelle?

Ultra chic Lydia is arguably one of the trendiest TOWIE girls now, but it hasn't always been that way...

Just like Popey, Maria is almost unrecognisable! The red hair is much more flattering on her skin tone.
