She’s been showing off her new slimline figure in recent weeks after shifting an impressive 4 stone.
And to defy any critics who thought she may be using photo editing to look slimmer than she is, Lauren Goodger appeared in a bikini on live television on Monday.
Appearing on Loose Women to promote her new fitness DVD, the former TOWIE star, 29, proudly showed off her tanned and toned figure in an orange two-piece.

The big reveal: Lauren Goodger strips down to a bikini to show off her 4 stone weight loss with a cardboard cutout of her previously heavier frame
Posing backstage in the Green Room at the ITV studios, Lauren appeared in a bikini, remarkably similar to the one she was famously photographed in while heavier back in February 2015 on a holiday to Egypt.
However, rather awkwardly, Loose Women panellist Nadia Sawalha ended up asking Lauren if she had lost weight to compete with Michelle Keegan – the wife of her ex-fiance Mark Wright.
Lauren replied: ‘I completely get it and I can see why people would think that, but where I am in my life and [where] they are in their life, I’ve got a boyfriend I’ve had for three years, it was nothing to do with anyone else apart from me.

‘There was nothing that could influence me, no one that could come to me and go “do this”. I did it at my time, when I was ready.’
Nadia ended up receiving some criticism on Twitter by her question, with some viewers accusing her of being ‘rude’.
One tweeted: ‘Why did Nadia mention Michelle Keegan? What was that about? #loosewomen.’
Feeling content: Lauren is clearly happier than she’s been in ages after overhauling her lifestyle and living healthier
Another wrote: ‘Hated Nadia mentioning Michelle Keegan to Lauren Goodger! #unnecessary #loosewomen.’
One viewer tweeted: ‘I genuinely feel sorry for @LaurenGoodger ; she can’t even lose weight without having to answer questions about her ex’s wife! #loosewomen.’
Lauren was previously in a 10 year on/off romance with former TOWIE co-star Mark and the pair were briefly engaged before splitting in 2011.
Mark started dating Coronation Street actress Michelle in December 2012 before tying the knot last summer in a lavish wedding.
While Lauren has admitted battling her weight over the past few years, her ex Mark has always boasted that Michelle could eat whatever she wanted.
In a 2014 interview, he said: ‘She doesn’t diet that much. She had a Magnum ice cream at 12 o’clock last night in bed! She just goes to the gym two to three times a week and watches what she eats.’
Unfair comparison: Lauren was asked if she under pressure to be slim like Michelle Keegan, who has spoken openly about not needing to diet.
