An Only Way is Essex star won thousands of pounds for a Woodford Green disability charity.

Lydia Bright won £20,000 in Celebrity Tipping Point for Every Life Has A Purpose (Elhap) in Roding Lane North.

To win the money Lydia answered general knowledge questions and was pitted against other well-known faces including Miranda actress Sarah Hadland.

"I can't thank Tipping Point enough for letting me be part of the show," Lydia said.

"Elhap is such an underfunded charity but is so important for our community.

"They have been such a massive support to my family and my adopted brother over the years, so to be able to give this donation was just amazing.
