As her TOWIE co-stars hit boot camp, Lauren's still struggling with her weight

Strolling along a beach in Miami, Lauren Goodger cuts a sad figure as she admits her body insecurities are spiralling out of control.

The 24-year-old TOWIE celeb has put on a stone since she split from fiancé Mark Wright last summer and has tearfully told friends:

I feel so fat.’

Lauren, who’s holidaying in America with co-star Frankie Essex, hid her size 14 curves under a multicoloured playsuit.

It was a stark contrast to previous beach holidays when, as a size 8-10, she confidently stripped to a bikini.

Lauren’s admitted she was horrified after reading recent taunts on Twitter that she looked like Miss Piggy and a beached whale’.

These unflattering shots in the harsh sunshine are set to cause her further heartache.

Although she’s battled with her yo-yoing weight for years, Lauren has hit rock bottom since her relationship break-up.

Locked in a cycle of comfort eating, the star longs to return to her skinnier days.

Even curvy girls are toned. I’m not,’ she said recently.
