Grace Woodward invited Lydia to talk through her clothing choices and she admitted that she was not a fan of Caitlyn Jenner's style. Lydia said: 'Obviously she's an inspiration but I don't like her style because she looks like a middle aged woman'.

Upon seeing her new look Lydia was left close to tears: 'I love those shoes and I love this dress. Little bit emotional. 'I'm ecstatic to show off to my friends my family, especially my mum and my sister. They're going to be so pleased to see me as I am now. 'This is just me embodied as a woman now, this is a defining point for me and I will definitely reflect on it in the future and throughout the rest of my life.' Also on the show is 23-year-old Sasha who nominated herself for a make under after her friends claim that she dresses like EastEnder's character Kat Slater Sasha admits that her look is not popular with women having previously been physically attacked by them Also on the show was 23-year-old Sasha who nominated herself for a make-under after her friends claimed that she dresses like EastEnders' character Kat Slater. As she met the trio of stylists, it came clear that Sasha did seem to share the same taste in animal print and platform heels as the Walford resident. When Daniel asked what attention she gets from women she said: 'I get a lot of horrible comments sometimes they even physically attack me'. remy hair extensionsBut it isn't just women who give Sasha a hard time. She added: 'I've had weird situations on public transport where I have had to literally grab a guy's phone and throw it because he's sitting there thinking he was taking pictures of me slyly.' The expert team of stylists help to tone down Sasha's neon bright look with more neutral and subtle tones Sasha admitted that she isn't offended by her comparisons to the famous soap character adding she was open to changing her make-up but didn't want anything done to her hair. When her appearance was put to the public vote, the 23-year-old was given four out of ten. One member of the public commented: 'This image gives off "I want to have sex with somebody". I think she could be classier.' But fiery Sasha was quick to defend herself, responding: 'I think it's a bit rude saying I look like I wanna have sex with someone when he looks like he hasn't been laid in his life so he should shut up'. However, the three style experts managed to tone down her appearance, convincing her to ditch her extensions, thick make-up and bright colours for a more pared down look. Her verdict? 'I do feel like it's a whole different look. I like it but it's different,' she said. 'I do really like the outfit, I think it's really cute. I do love the plait. I love like the whole style but I don't know whether I look like an alien.' 100% Hotter is on Wednesday nights at 8pm on 5STAR
