Speaking ahead of the 17th series, the Essex star confessed she gets "the fear" after filming certain scenes as she has no idea how they will come across on camera.
"Sometimes you do fear the reaction you'll get after you've filmed a scene – I remember approaching Amy when I thought something was going on with her and James," she said.
"I was so nervous about talking to her because I knew how much the public loved her – and at the time everyone did go against me for it."
Lydia joined The Only Way Is Essex back in 2010, but left two years later. She returned in 2014 and is now all loved up with on-off boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent again.
