Can you believe it was only just over a year ago she was pushing Mark Wright into a swimming pool?

Oh, hello there Lauren Goodger – what exactly has you looking so smoking hot and full of self-confidence? We want a little bit of whatever it is.

Could it be TOWIE‘s resident hottie Tom Pearce? Um, definitely. The pair went on a cute cinema date on last night’s show, and Lauren was giggling away like a schoolgirl the whole time.

It was dark but we could SO see you blushing, Lauren. Yes, we would most definitely let Tom take us to see Ice Age 3.

And to think it was only last summer that Lauren was pushing her sleazy ex, Mark Wright, into a swimming pool. And then crying about it for the next million episodes of TOWIE. Zzzzz.

But it seems like all of a sudden, Lauren has got her mojo back in bundles. We bet she’s not giving Mark a second thought now. And we’re so proud of her!

Aside from men, Lauren‘s done boot camp and she’s made herself a gaggle of new BFFs in Essex, too. Girl power!

She’s looking super slim, she’s looking sprightly – but most importantly she’s looking genuinely happy.

Cute!
