Lydia Bright has been forced to hit back after she was criticised for saying she’s had the “best year” of her life.

The former TOWIE star, 29, was questioned by one of her Instagram followers, who pointed out it’s been a bad year for many people because of the pandemic.

Sharing a picture from a family Christmas photo shoot, Lydia, who welcomed her daughter Loretta in February, said in an Instagram post: “What a beautiful way to end the best year of my life.”

One follower wrote: “Best year of your life… you are joking! It’s the worst year in history with this pandemic!!” followed by an angry face emoji.

Sharing the comment to her Instagram Story, Lydia, who showed off her incredible festive decorations, penned: “We also should not be made to feel guilty by saying we are happy. Comments like this on my latest picture make me second question if I should remove posts or edit captions.

“It has been the best year of my life, a weird but wonderful year.”

Lydia added: “But I am also very grateful for what this year has taught me and most importantly what this year has brought me,” followed by a baby emoji.

Lydia opened about her relationship status during an Instagram Q+A last month.

When asked if she’s got a boyfriend, she explained: “I am so busy with work and trying to give my daughter the best possible life, full of adventures.

“I don’t know where I would find time for a man. I may feel differently in the future but right now I have all the love I need.”

She also admitted she and ex-boyfriend James Argent are still “good friends".

The former TOWIE couple dated on and off between 2008 and 2015 before going their separate ways, but Lydia revealed there is no bad blood between them.

When another follower asked if she’s still in contact with James, she replied: “Yes we are still good friends and our families are very close.

“I will always care for Arg we have so much history.”
