Lydia Bright reckons viewers can expect the 14th series of The Only Way is Essex to be the most ‘explosive’ yet.

Speaking ahead of the show’s return to ITVBe this Sunday, Lydia told whatsontv.co.uk: “We’ve only filmed the first episode but I can’t believe how dramatic is has been already. So much drama happened in Tenerife, there were so many arguments, it’s been crazy already. I feel like it’s going to be a really explosive series!”

As one of TOWIE’s original cast members, Lydia – who took a break from the show in 2012 – described how the show’s changed since it started in 2010.

“It’s changed massively,” she said. “I had a break for a year and a half and when I came back the whole cast had changed from when I first started with Sam, Mark, Amy and Kirk and now there are so many new cast members.

“But it’s been good because it’s been like a whole other show. I’m enjoying it, I’ve made lots of new friends and it’s nice to see the show’s evolved.”

The Only Way is Essex returns on Sunday February 22 at 10pm on ITVBe.
