The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Goodger might have left in a haze of tears, but last night she was all smiles as she partied with pals in London's Mayfair.

The 26-year-old looked happy and carefree, sporting her trademark glossy extensions and glowing tan.

Moving away from her usual style of short, body-con dress, Lauren partied in long, flowing maxi-dress and flat sandals.

Single girl Lauren headed to Novikov Restaurant and the Arts Club with her friends, tweeting; ''Wasn't planning in going out been up town all day! Maxi and sandals #dinner x''
