As our exclusive pictures show, the single star was loving the attention from the ladies, including the gorgeous Ashley Roberts. A source at the showbiz bash tells us: ‘Louis was fully embracing the single life last night and seemed anything but heartbroken. Wherever he turned there’d be floods of girls desperate to get near him, which he didn’t seem to mind. He was very affectionate with them.’

It looks like Louis is coping well following his split from ex-TOWIE star Lucy, 24, earlier this month. ‘Lucy and Louis wanted different things,’ a source told The Sun at the time. Even a vacation couldn’t save the relationship, with the insider adding: ‘They really hoped their holiday would bring them back together but if anything it just made things worse’.

Despite speculation that the break-up may have been down to Louis not being ready to commit, the man himself denied that in an intriguing post on Instagram recently. ‘Yes me and Lucy have broken up!! Yes I’m ok and I’m glad she’s ok as well,’ he wrote. ‘And yes we definitely want different things. And no the reason isn’t because I refused to settle down.’
