Lydia Bright was shocked to discover Joey Essex and Amy Willerton's were dating but believes the beauty pageant queen is a good match for the loveable reality star
Lydia Bright was shocked by Joey Essex and Amy Willerton's romance.
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star thought the jungle relationship between her ex-co-star and the beauty pageant queen was nothing more than a flirtation fling and she was stunned to discover the pair were actually dating.
Despite her allegiances to Joey's former fiancé Sam Faiers, Lydia thinks Amy is a good match for loveable Joey and is rooting for their romance to work.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I was definitely surprised. I didn't realise it was going to evolve, I thought they were just flirting. I was a bit shocked, but if he's happy...
"I've never met her, but she is literally the sweetest girl, she is absolutely beautiful. I loved her on that show, obviously I've got to root for Joey, but she was my all time favourite on that show."
While Lydia admitted she hasn't spoken to Sam - who has recently revealed she wanted to get back with Joey - she can sympathise with how hard it must be for her friend.
Speaking at the Lydia Rose Bright and Lipstick Boutique SS14 preview event, she mused: "If your heart's there still, obviously it must be hard for you to watch. At the end of the day they're not together any more. It's a bit of a tricky situation. It's sad, but you can't help how things happen."
The Lydia Rose Bright SS14 collection launches at Lipstick Boutique in January 2014.
