Just 24 hours earlier, she was spotted looking pale, unhappy and frazzled.
But something appears to have put the smile back on Chantelle Houghton as she went partying in London last night.
The heavily pregnant reality star, 28, looked beaming as she arrived solo at the Pearlys Professional Teeth Whitening launch at the Sanctum Soho Hotel.

Although her fianc Alex Reid was nowhere to be seen, it didn't seem to bother the former glamour model, who was in good spirits as she chatted to fellow celebrities and journalists at the party.
Currently eight months pregnant, Houghton showed off her large bump in a Lycra top, which she teamed with a pair of shiny leggings and an orange blazer.
Her night out came a day after she was photographed looking tired and stressed outside her Essex home on Tuesday.

It's been a stressful few months for Houghton with her coping with being heavily pregnant and getting the couple's new house ready for the baby while Reid is spending most of his time on the road on the Wildboyz tour.
She also had a scare when she found out she had an irregular heartbeat – Supraventricular Tachycardia, which is a relatively common condition during pregnancy.
Both Houghton and Reid have defended their relationship in recent weeks, but admitted their wedding plans are on hold for now.
On Tuesday, she wrote a cryptic message on her Twitter page: 'Karma is a bitch and I'm so glad it is cos people only find out how much of a bitch it is when its too late and they've hurt u.'
And in her magazine column this week, she admitted she was disappointed that Reid had spoken about his marriage to Price and her recent engagement to Leandro Penna.
She wrote in her New! column: 'To be honest with you, it wasn't nice to read.
'They were together so long ago and both of them have moved on with new partners, so it seems a shame to rake up old ground.
'Also this week, another mag claimed that Alex and I sleep in separate bedrooms, which is absolute rubbish.
'He's been away with the WildBoyz tour, but when he's at home, he's definitely in bed with me!'
The couple only celebrated their first year anniversary last month, but already hit a rocky patch in March when Reid sent private Twitter messages to model Amy Willerton – former protogee of his ex.
