The first pictures of Lauren Goodger on the TOWIE set have been released and now we're even more excited about the Christmas special!
Original The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren, 29, is returning to the ITVBe show for the first time she was quit back in 2012 and it's safe to say we're just a tad thrilled.
In these photos, she pops into Chloe Sims' beauty bar in Essex for some pampering and a natter with Chloe and co-star Danielle Armstrong. We can't wait to find out what they talked about!
Lauren left the show three years ago after six series. She's still one of the most memorable characters, mostly thanks to her on-off relationship with Mark Wright, who is now married to Michelle Keegan. We watched them break up, make up, kiss, get engaged and everything in between.
One of the most memorable scenes is still when Lauren pushed Mark into a swimming pool.
Commenting on her return, Lauren said: "I'm back on TOWIE after three years and it's a Christmas miracle!"
Lauren isn't the only former TOWIE star returning for Christmas: we'll also see Mario Falcone and Gemma Collins back in the Essex fold when the episode airs on Wednesday 16 December at 10pm on ITVBe.
Ten reasons why we want to be on TOWIE!
