00:27 GMT, 15 August 2012
She might be 12 weeks pregnant, but it doesn't look as though Imogen Thomas will be waving goodbye to her penchant for super-tight dresses any time soon.
Expecting her first child with boyfriend Adam Horsley in November, the 29-year-old model would be forgiven for slouching around in comfortable clothes as her due date nears.
But while stepping out for a dinner date with a female friend earlier this evening, the brunette bombshell proved she will be making the most of her fuller figure while she still can.
Flaunting her curves: Imogen Thomas squeezed her growing baby bump into a super-tight red dress as she stepped out in London this evening
Squeezing her baby bump into a form-fitting red dress, the star seemed to be basking in the glow of impending parenthood as she left London's exclusive Nobu restaurant with a protective hand over her bump.
With her dark locks pulled back off her face into a top knot, Imogen looked positively radiant as she stepped out with her friend.
But as the former Big Brother star left the eatery, she seemed to feel some movement with her baby and stopped to tenderly caress her bump.

Protective: The 29-year-old star kept a hand close to her baby bump at all times
Despite only having announced her pregnancy a matter of days ago, Imogen was recently rushed to the Accident and Emergency ward because of complications with her womb.
Speaking to new! magazine, she said: 'My first internal scan on Tuesday showed the baby was OK, thank God, but then I started bleeding again when I got home.
'Not being crude but I literally filled three pads with blood.

'I actually thought, “This is it.” I was hysterical. I could have been losing my baby.'
Not knowing at all what was wrong and panicking that she was losing her first child, she burst into tears and cried.
She told the magazine: 'I went back to the hospital first thing and they gave me another internal scan and the baby was still fine. He was kicking away.'
The Welsh star was relieved to know that everything was normal, although she admitted the experience gave her quite a scare.
Imogen, who doesn't know if she is having a boy or a girl despite referring to her unborn child as 'he', explained that the large size of her bump is caused by her tilted womb.
She added: 'But hopefully, it will tilt back by the time I'm due. It's very rare – only 10 per cent of women have it.'
