TOWIE's Lydia Bright looked absolutely beautiful as she joined mum Debbie Douglas this weekend at an awards ceremony dedicated to foster carers.

The Essex star arrived at The Camden Foster Carer Awards 2016 on 13 May looking drop dead gorgeous in a satin skirt with floral embroidery, teamed with a black crop top and heels.

LOVE this look on Lydia!

But of course, the evening wasn't about fashion, it was about fostering, a subject very close to Lydia and Debbie's hearts, as Debbie has fostered more than 250 children over 22 years.

Lydia shared a selfie to Instagram during the evening of herself and Debbie playing up for the cameras, alongside the caption: "Never a dull moment. Me and mumma presenting at the Camden Foster Carer Awards 2016. #FosterForLondon."

Lydia and Debbie previously spoke to Reveal in 2014 about their fostering experience, with Debbie admitting she worried fostering so many children could negatively affect her own kids.

But Lydia assured her that wasn't the case.

"I'd cry with worry that I was damaging my own children," said Debbie. "Was I being the mum they needed? How would they cope with the constant loss of seeing their new brothers and sisters leave?"

But Lydia replied: "For every 100 negative things, there were a million amazing memories. I was never lonely and all my friends were so jealous – our house was like being on a constant school trip, bunking up, sharing stuff, just being part of a huge, fun family. I appreciated what an amazingly privileged life I had."

Lydia and Debbie also visited Buckingham Palace last week for an afternoon tea in celebration of 150 years of Barnardo's, an organisation that they work closely with.
