"Thank you so much for all the lovely comments, I see them all and I appreciate every single one! Bye Lydia it's been a blast."

She has since teased a comeback after she got an apology from her ex Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson).

She told the Metro: "I think now we have that redemption, people have seen she is not just this crazy woman just doing it for no reason, it would be good to explore it a bit more.

“And what she is really like as a person, I’d love to do it."
