TOWIE star Lydia Bright has admitted she is upset to hear she has "angered" fans of the show.

So far, viewers have seen Lydia at the centre of all the drama that unfolded in Mallorca, thanks to her awkward reunion with ex-boyfriend James Arg Argent and *that* showdown with Megan McKenna.

While she stood her ground in both situations, Lydia found herself criticised for being "too harsh" on Arg and accused of ganging up on Megan with Chloe Lewis. Revealing that the negative comments had got to her, Lydia told fans she'd had a "really bad day" yesterday and was in need of cheering up.

The 26-year-old shared a picture of a cocktail she had enjoyed at a Notting Hill salon to Instagram and added the caption: "You can't please everyone all the time. Had a really bad day, sad to hear I have angered so many viewers. Cheered myself up with some TLC at the salon and a cheeky glitter cocktail."

Later that evening, she joined Chloe and both girls attending Revlon's beauty ball, making an oh-so-glam appearance on the red carpet. Following the event, they headed to STK and dined with Jessica Wright and her younger sister Natalya. Lydia told fans: "Late night parties. Burgers, Mac n Cheese and lots of LOLS."

Lydia's posts come after viewers saw her and Megan come to blows on TOWIE recently. Megan had confronted Chloe about a rumour she had dropped (Chloe accused Megan of 'dirty grinding' on another man - not boyfriend Pete Wicks) and Lydia stepped in when Megan accused Chloe of not being so "innocent" herself.

That led to Megan asking Lydia why she has a problem with her and Lydia hit back: "My issue is the way you carry yourself. You go from zero to 100. You can't just shout and expect to be heard Megan, you don't scare us. You're embarrassing yourself. Have a normal adult conversation. Don't throw your toys out of the pram."

Megan responded: "You act like you're above everyone. You f**king walk around on your high horse." Ending the argument, she told Lydia: "You and your fringe can f**k off."

Speaking about Megan after the row, Lydia claimed her co-star was "very immature", while Chloe said Megan was "weak" for getting personal about Lydia.

Megan, meanwhile, insisted she is never going to be friends with the girls.

Fans reacted to the fallout on social media, and some accused Chloe and Lydia of being "jealous" of Megan. Others said the girls had "ganged up" on Megan and took her side.

Meanwhile, many others made sure to show their support for Chloe and Lydia and tweeted the girls to let them know they were backing them.

Fans commented on Lydia's latest Instagram posts and told her to "ignore the negativity", with one follower adding: "You had every right to handle arg like that and what you stuck up for your friend? You're one of the nicest people on the show anyone can see that!"

TOWIE continues Sunday 24 July at 10pm on ITVBe.
