Showing her true character, the undeterred teen joked when a crew member knocked something behind the camera, as she quipped: ‘Careful, it’s normally me walking into things, you’re not meant to do that!’ 

Lydia’s mother explained: ‘We were told that there were two ways of dealing with it, you wrap her in cotton wool, or you prepare her to do anything.’

But Lydia insisted: ‘I don’t let anything hold me back, I love giving things a go and I love surprising people.’
