TOWIE: Sam Faiers strips to bikini for Hawaiian housewarming

Only in Essex! Sam Faiers and TOWIE pals ignore the snow as they strip to their swimwear for Hawaiian housewarming party

With temperatures sticking at below 0C, most people are spending their evenings wrapped up warm indoors.

But that is certainly not the case in Essex, as Sam Faiers proved last night when she threw a Hawaiian-themed housewarming party at her new pad.

The 21-year-old star led the way for her TOWIE pals to ignore the freezing cold weather and embrace their inner bikini babes as they stripped to their swimwear for the occasion.

However, while Sam attempted to
ensure she was the centre of attention at the bash in a revealing black
bikini top and flowered sarong, she was upstaged by Lucy Mecklenburgh,
who stood out from the crowd in her revealing swimsuit.

Lucy pouted and posed for the cameras
outside Sam's new house, showing off all her best angles in the daring
cutaway leopard-print monokini.

And while most of her pals covered up
their swimwear in various kaftan options, Lucy decided to let her
figure take centre stage by wearing only a crochet shawl over the
swimsuit.

Other stars to stand out at the party included Chloe Sims, who channelled the Little Mermaid in a white shell bikini
top and tiny playsuit, and Jessica Wright, who appeared to have gone
slightly overboard with the fake tan for the occasion.

And, of course, all the girls teamed their outfits with sky-high heels to make their legs look as long as possible.

Apparently Sam was so determined to embrace the Hawaiian spirit for the party that she even hired a hot tub for her back garden.

In addition, all of the party guests were given floral garlands and bracelets to liven up their outfits.

Sam moved into her luxurious
400,000, three-bedroom property in Essex with her boyfriend TJ earlier
this month, and was seen beaming with delight as she picked up the keys
to the house.

She tweeted after the move: 'Busy bee today doing adult house moving-in stuff!! Exciting though!!'

Sam also recently revealed that TJ is
set to feature in the fourth series of The Only Way Is Essex, which is
currently airing on ITV2.

She said: 'The producers really liked
him, and it's really just a matter of fitting him into the storyline.
I'm excited about the new characters coming in to the show — it will
brighten it up a bit.

'Even better my boyfriend may feature. He'll have all the girls after him and I'll get well jel!'
