Soon after leaving the hit ITV2 show, Lauren opened up about her decision to quit the programme and claimed it was not to find her fortune elsewhere, but because of her weight insecurities.

Goodger revealed that she felt so body conscious next to other slim cast-mates that she would want to hide parts of her body in front of the cameras.

She admitted that working with her skinny co-stars didn't help her feelings of paranoia.

She told the Sunday Mirror: 'I felt under so much pressure. Most of the girls on TOWIE are quite skinny… Next to the others, I’d be panicking over whether my arms looked fat or how big I’d look if I was sitting down.

'I’d even beg producers to let me sit at a table so I could hide my legs underneath.'

But now that she has finally decided to hang up her high heels and leave the show, Lauren is looking forward to 'a break' after constantly struggling with her weight issues.

Rumoured to be taking up a role on Dancing On Ice now that she is free from her contract with TOWIE, Lauren is still remaining tight-lipped about any signings.
