Lydia Bright has split from her boyfriend.

The "Only Way Is Essex" star revealed via Instagram that she and Lee Cronin, who had dated for around two years, have ended their relationship.

She said: "Sometimes relationships don't work out but having time away to reflect on how lucky I am in my life, what I have achieved and who I have around me fills my heart with so much love.

"Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same. Here is to my next chapter."

The split comes as a surprise as Lee, 32, recently spoke about his desire to settle down with Lydia, 28, and get married.

He said: "We've had talks about marriage and having a family. We want to get in the house first, get settled - but they are our future plans, definitely.

"When you know, you know. When me and Lyd met we clicked so well in every way. We're so close. Often things fizzle out, but not with us."

Lydia initially kept her romance with Lee secret for a year as she wanted to keep their romance out of the public eye following her failed on/off eight-year relationship with "TOWIE" co-star James "Arg" Argent.

Speaking in April 2018, she explained: "We're really, really good. Me and him went to Morocco. I kept it secret for a very long time but we've actually been together for nearly a year. We live together. I just had such a public relationship that I just felt it was nice to hold back a bit. There's less pressure.

"I was asked when I was at the BAFTAs and everyone thought we weren't together and they thought I had another boyfriend. But I've been with him for nearly a year."
