Reality favourite Lydia, 30, starred in The Only Way is Essex for just seven years but invested all of her wages on properties around Essex.

Whilst fans watched the drama on-screen Lydia was squirrelling away her hard earned cash and setting up companies to invest in bricks and mortar.

Now a single mum to daughter Loretta, Lydia settled in one of her gorgeous homes that she renovated and has shared updates on the project on her dedicated Lydia Bright's Home Instagram page.

The pad boasts a newly kitted out kitchen and bathroom, a new loft conversion and an all white interior.

Records of her property empire revealed she has properties dotted all over Essex and she rents them out.

And new accounts in for the firms today revealed £789,614 in property assets and on going profits at £247,362.

Out of the three, Lydia Bright Properties is her biggest business to date.
