They say you can take the girl out of Essex, but you can't take the Essex out the girl – a saying that probably resonates around Lauren Goodger's head incessantly.
On a night on the tiles in Manchester, the former TOWIE star looked frighteningly orange and for once it wasn't just her tan.
But the 26-year-old wasn't going to let her outfit get in the way of having fun as she headed to private members club The Circle in the northern city.
Smoking! Lauren breathes out a wisp of smoke during her evening out with a rather confused friend
And ever friendly to her followers the reality star posted a series of pictures on Twitter of her and her pal during the evening.
But although her outfit may not have been the best choice it seems like in typical Lauren fashion she decided to forget all about that and just party hard.
The single starlet, who recently enjoyed a stay at Breakfree Retreats in Majorca, had curled her hair for the evening and her make-up looked flawless.

Lauren named her pal as Tanya Robinson, but is unclear if Ms Robinson gave permission for the smokey shot to be published on Twitter.
It is thought the friends were smoking sheesha, which is a flavored molasses tobacco typically smoked in a hookah pipe.
The starlet turned businesswoman is in Manchester promoting her beauty range which is advertised as helping women 'get the Lauren look'.
On offer are tans, something Lauren obviously is a big fan of, eyelashes, clip ins and many other beauty must-haves.

Lauren obviously stuck to the smoking as she was up at 9am on Sunday boasting that she would be at a pro beauty event.
Lauren had been away in Majorca for a detox holiday as the size 12 star wanted to drop down a dress size.
'I wanted to get away from the limelight for a while and enjoy some privacy and 'me' time, which is definitely what I have got here,' she told Closer magazine.

At the exclusive villa owned by Breakfree Retreats, Lauren struggled with the juice-only diet which saw her eating only smoothies, juices and herbal teas accompanied by a range of fitness activities.
Yoga, swimming, beach runs and bike rides were all on the plan, which claims participants can lose between seven and twelve pounds in just one week.
