Viewers learned on yesterday's episode that former couple Lydia and Arg had slept together after a night out, making Arg the happiest man in Essex but leaving Lydia's pals slightly concerned.
"I am a little bit nervous about everyone finding out," she told the TOWIE official website.
"A lot of people had their own opinions and some people were quite angry with me and reacted in quite a bad way as they remember the bad times when me and James broke up and the heartache I went through."
Lydia continued: "So naturally a lot of people are a bit concerned and a bit angry with me and disappointed, so it's been hard."
Of course, the fact Lydia and Arg hooked up had everyone wondering if they'd get back together.
While a smitten Arg would clearly love that to be the case, as we all saw last night, Lydia appears to be taking a more cautious approach.
After saying she hadn't ruled out a future with Arg, she added: "I never in a million years thought I'd say this six months ago but there is obviously something there. We get on so well. But it wouldn't be anytime soon because I'm just enjoying myself. I like being independent and I like being single.
"Who knows what the future may hold. We do have something special here whether we're just friends or more. I don't know but that's our journey to find out."
TOWIE airs Wednesdays and Sundays on ITV2.
