She famously had a tumultuous on-off romance with James 'Arg' Argent, eventually calling time on their relationship last summer.
And on learning that he recently shot an appearance on a celebrity version of dating show Take Me Out, Lydia Bright gave some snide advice to the lady he'll choose to accompany him to the fictitious Isle of Fernando's.
During an appearance on ITV's Lorraine on Friday, the TOWIE star said: 'I think any advice I'd give to the girls that are going to Fernando's with him, just feed him! Just give him some food and he'll be in love with you forever!'

Just his type: The reality star announced: 'I like natural looking girls, girls I can have a bit of banter with and a nice bum goes a long way'
The reality star - who famously dated Lydia Bright on and off - announced: 'I like natural looking girls, girls I can have a bit of banter with and a nice bum goes a long way.
'I’ve been single for around six months, I’ve had a few dates but nothing special.'
The star added: 'The most Essex thing about me has got to be my bachelor pad in Chigwell. I live with my mate Dan (fellow TOWIE cast member Dan Edgar) we’ve even got 'His and His' matching dressing gowns.'
Dan then appeared on screen to admit: 'I definitely mother Arg. He’s not the best around the house and that’s exactly why he needs a good lady in his life so it gives me a bit of a day off.'

James' younger sister made headlines last year when she was accused of cheating in the London Marathon.
Natasha was investigated by officials after she finished the 26.2mile run in under four hours - racing through the final 20km in 48 minutes - and missed 11 of the 24 checkpoints along the route.
Event organisers later confirmed she had returned her finisher's medal and would be banned from taking part in any future London Marathon events.
Natasha later blamed the scandal on 'getting lost' and suffering from a panic attack.
The Take Me Out: Celebrity Special also features KISS Breakfast host Melvin Odoom and Olympian gymnast Nile Wilson and airs on Sunday at 7pm on ITV.
