I feel like my time has naturally come to an end - I've been so busy with other projects. It's all about taking chances and moving on to new things. I just need to take some time out
She's been a front runner on the UK's most talked about reality show for seven years - now Lydia Bright is leaving TOWIE.
She said her time on the show had come to a 'natural end' and denied any link with former flame James ‘Arg’ Argent's comeback: "I didn’t realise he was even returning and when that press surfaced I called him and said “I haven’t stropped off because you’re coming back”!
Speaking to us this morning, she did admit the couple had been through a lot during their on/off relationship, but wants to look back on it fondly: "I remember coming on here and saying we’d be together forever, and then six months later saying we’re off! But I don’t want to have bitter memories".
Lydia has just released her new book Live, Laugh, Love, Always, Lydia - filled with her lifestyle tips, dating rules and beauty ideas.
