TOWIE star Lauren Goodger has been considering liposuction after binge eating over her split from Mark Wright, friends have claimed.
The burette beauty is reportedly stuck a hard to break cycle of comfort eating over her previous relationships.
One pal told Closer magazine: "Lauren's self-esteem seems to be at an all-time low because she' can't control her junk good and booze binges.
"She sees them as her downfall. Lauren says she's locked in a cycle - she's miserable over Mark, which triggers her comfort-eating, then gets down as she can't seem to shift the weight."
Lauren, who hit out at Frankie Cocozza earlier this month after he branded her "fat", has been apparently drinking and binge eating to help her emotions.
"Lauren constantly criticises her body and is even talking about having liposuction on her thighs and tummy," the friend continues.
"She doesn’t seem to have discipline at the moment. She'll have a boozy night out on the town, then spent the next day eating fatty, carb-rich foods to get over the hangover."
The Only Way Is Essex continues tomorrow night on ITV2.
