TOWIE star Lydia Bright has debuted her brand new tattoo on Instagram: a fish hook.

Lydia has just jetted back from her travels in Indonesia and while staying in Bali, she plucked up the courage to get her first ever tattoo.

The 26-year-old revealed she'd had the body inking done yesterday, but kept us all guessing when it came to what she had chosen. Now, we've finally got a good look at it and it's a little fish hook etched onto the inside of Lydia's finger.

A fish hook? Yup, it may sound like an unusual choice, but it actually has a pretty big meaning.

Lydia explained why she had chosen the tat alongside her photo, and it's a reminder of her recent experience while filming The Island with Bear Grylls. Fans will see her and a slew of celebrities including Ollie Locke survive on a remote island for Cancer Research's Stand Up To Cancer later this year.

Lydia revealed: "So here it is my ever tattoo. A fish hook. In February, I took part in the biggest challenge of my life 'Bear Grylls The Island.' I got a nasty, extremely painful fish hook stuck in my finger that left me my proud scar."

"I got this tattoo in Bali to represent my wonderful world travels and incredible experiences #Baby #Tat #Ink #AlreadyAddicted" she added.

Does that mean we can expect more tattoos in the future?

Fans were quick to credit Lydia for having it done, as they pointed out the finger is one of the most painful places to get a tattoo.

One follower commented: "That's so painful on the finger.. FairPlay @lydiabright." While another said: "Fair play to u the finger is the worst place to have one - at least u know if u have any more they won't ever feel as bad xxx."

While Lydia was away, news surfaced that she has split from her co-star boyfriend James Arg Argent.

Arg recently confirmed that he and Lydia are 'taking a break' and insisted her trip had been planned before they decided to part ways. He said: "Me and Lydia are on a bit of a break at the moment. Of course I'm hoping that we'll get back together in the near future. She's away in Bali, which wasn't a holiday to get away from me. It was something she'd had booked in for a while."

He, meanwhile, has been at boot camp, after vowing to get himself back into shape. Arg revealed he had put on four stone in the last year during TOWIE's last series.

Lydia had alluded to their break while she was travelling. She shared a cryptic message with fans on Instagram, telling them: "Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations #Indonesia #IslandLife."

They have been dating for the last seven years.
