Lydia Bright's turbulent on/off relationship with James 'Arg' Argent is perhaps one of the greatest TOWIE love stories – scrap that, storylines (remember when he got her a pet pig?) – ever, but it all came to an end in 2016 when they split for good and Lydia later moved on with Lee Cronin.

The reality star went on to fall pregnant and welcomed daughter Loretta into the world, although she split from Lee two months into the pregnancy.

Since leaving TOWIE in 2017, Lydia has been busy being a single mum to her daughter. She is also busy renovating her GORGEOUS 18th century Georgian home (which, of course, she has a separate Instagram account for).
