Lydia, a 25-year-old professional dancer, is engaged to Andy Scott-Lee. She met the reality star whilst dancing in a music video for his sister, Lisa Scott-Lee, of Steps fame.
As a child she attended three-hour dance classes, six days a week and professionally she has danced with Kylie Minogue and Kanye West, amongst others. She says that the best job she's ever done was for the film Mamma Mia
, where she was on screen for every ensemble number and even had a scene with Meryl Streep.
Lydia finds it hard to walk away from confrontation, "I can't help but put my two pennies worth in I pride myself on the ability to outwit my contender." She's very much in the show to win it, "I don't go into something for the experience" and that she will win it by "letting people hang themselves. I'll walk in and suss everyone out."
Lydia can't drink alcohol because she's allergic to it (she can't even have it in food).
