Lauren left the show at the end of the last series to appear on next year's Dancing on Ice and it is already reported that Lydia has similarly set her sights on alternative reality TV.
Well, we hardly think she would leave the show for nothing and we reckon it's more than likely that she has had offers from elsewhere.

And the rumour is that Lydia has been offered a contract with Celebrity Big Brother and is keen to sign up.
We are crossing our fingers that this is true because we wouldn't want Lydia off our telly boxes for good.
In fact, why don't they chuck her Mum Debbie in too? Now that would be some amaze telly.
And plus, her wardrobe would almost definitely give us something to gawp over come new Year.
And we can totally see her ex James Argent turning up for a few episodes to guarantee a bit of Essex drama in the BB house.
However, being a groomed Essex lady, we would be interested to see how Lyds would cope with being constantly filmed even sans her slap.

But with Rylan Clark and Katie Price also in the rumoured line up, at least all the housemates would be in one boat.
