The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star has been sitting with ice pressed against her eyes for the past few days because they've become so puffy that they've glued shut following an at-home hot wax that went wrong earlier this week.

Taking to her Twitter account this morning (11.01.18), she said: "It is mywhole face swollen .. much better than what it was .. im currently icing my eyes lol and the cuts clearing up .. I couldn't open my eyes x (sic)"

The 31-year-old star has made no secret of the fact she likes to beautify herself on a regular basis - including fake tan and lip fillers - and recently admitted she's thinking of having a gastric band fitted because she's tired of fluctuating from a size 8 to a 14.

She said recently: "When I was doing my fitness DVD, I was so strict and I saw results. But I'm a sociable person and it made me miserable to stay in all the time.

"I fell off the wagon and I've put weight back on. I reckon I'm a size 12 now and I'm scared I might get bigger. I don't know what else to do. Go back to the gym, diet, and hate my life? I've spoken to friends about liposuction or a gastric band. I'd do anything like that if it meant I saw results fast.

"I'm sick of yo-yoing. I know I can have the best body. I'm curvy and go in and out in the right places but I just need that head start.

"I've tried everything else so surgery seems like the right option."

Lauren finds it tricky to lose weight because she feels like she'd have to stop socialising to stick to a diet.

She said: "I love my nights out. I used to be guilty of staying in a bit because I didn't want to be photographed. But that's not me. I need to socialise."
