Many took to Twitter after seeing Lauren's face again and gushed about her TOWIE comeback. One user commented: "How amazing did @LaurenGoodger look in last nights towie?! Love her," while another said: "Great to see @LaurenGoodger bk on #TOWIE last night #original #towiequeen (sic)."
Lauren's comeback has been a long time coming, after the 30-year-old first confirmed her return to TOWIE in August. She never headed out to Marbella to film with the cast this series, but Lauren did make an appearance in Essex to join Megan McKenna and Chloe Sims over brunch and offer her take on Megan's latest drama with boyfriend Pete Wicks.
Pete had been caught out for messaging other girls (including an ex-flame) explicit texts behind Megan's back. Viewers saw Megan confront Pete over the messages in Marbs, and while she revealed she knew about some texts that had been sent, she was unaware of others that included Pete suggesting he wanted to be single.
A heartbroken Megan has told Pete he has shattered her trust and while he has claimed he won't give up trying to win her back, Megan can't decided whether to give her boyfriend another chance.
Speaking to Lauren and Chloe, Megan admitted she is constantly changing her mind about Pete. She said: "I feel better about it and think, 'You know what it's happened and I'm going to get over it,' but then I see more stuff on Twitter and it brings me back to the beginning. I'm getting screengrabs and being tagged in things all the time. My dad is getting stopped in the street, he's getting things called out and said to him about Pete...
"I proper love him, it f**ks me off. The whole thing. I want to give him another chance but my head is..."
Lauren then told Megan that she wants her to give her relationship with Pete another chance, but only if she can 100 percent commit to their romance. Lauren said: "I want you to stay with Pete, I do. I think he's good for you. My loyalty lies with you, because you're my friend. Will you ever forgive him? You might want to, but can you?
"Can you sit at dinner with him? Can you sleep with him again? This is what you need to ask yourself, because you might just be dragging this out and putting yourself through more pain, when you can just move on now."
Following Megan and Lauren's scene airing, fans credited Lauren for her advice.
One user tweeted: "Love the mature @LaurenGoodger & her words of wisdom.. Spoken by someone who has been there, done that...," while another said: "@LaurenGoodger great advice . You can forgive but it's really hard to forget."
Others added that they wanted to see more of Lauren. She had only appeared in one scene in TOWIE's latest episode and fans insisted they wanted to see Lauren back for more.
One fan said: "@LaurenGoodger bring her back every episode !!! The old towie days were the best!!" Another added: "@LaurenGoodger I hope that's not the only time we get to see you this series."
