Lydia Bright unwittingly reveals Christmas present after a festive shopping spree

Don”t look now Arg! Lydia Bright unwittingly reveals one of her boyfriend”s Christmas presents after a festive shopping spree

There are just 16 days left until the big day and, across the nation, people are busy trawling the shops for gifts to present to their loved ones.

But one happy shopper, TOWIE”s Lydia Bright, may have to hand over one of her gifts a couple of weeks earlier than planned after unwittingly revealing what she”d got.

Lydia headed out with her friend and co-star Lucy Mecklenburgh before stopping off at a pub to relax and it was there where she pulled out a diamond-encrusted microphone with her boyfriend”s name spelled out in the shiny gems.

Loaded up with arms full of shopping bags and suitably dolled up to the nines, Lydia and Lucy sat down at the pub to survey their impressive haul.

But Lydia, who is back together with on/off boyfriend James “Arg” Argent, should perhaps have been a little more discreet as she pulled out the sparkling microphone.

She topped off an all-in-black ensemble with a red beret while Lucy, 19, wore a red dress and black heels with a grey faux fur coat and a furry white Russian style hat.

The thoughtful gift with “Arg” written in diamonds is perfect for her boyfriend who enjoys giving his vocal chords a workout every once in a while.

And the microphone might not be the only significant item Lydia grabs in the run up to Christmas.

She recently posted on Twitter to reveal that she”d been shopping for a new pig.

Fans of The Only Way Is Essex will be well aware that she already owns a pig named Mr. Darcy.

She was blasted by animal rights campaigners back in March this year after painting the pig”s trotters.

The 20-year-old blonde – who painted her pet pig Mr. Darcy”s trotters red to match her Christian Louboutin shoes – was branded an “idiot” for using the porky pal, bought for her last Christmas by boyfriend James “Arg” Argent, as a “plaything”.

Pig-breeder Bill Howes explained: “She”s an idiot. Pigs are noble creatures, not playthings. Pigs are farm animals, not some silly domestic pets. They should be treated with dignity and respect.”
