While her ex-fiance was stuffing his face with jungle critters in a Bushtucker trial she was being wined and dined at an Indian restaurant.

The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Goodger was in Essex last night at the opening of Headley Spice restaurant in Brentwood.

Wearing a traditional sari in mint green and matching eye shadow the 25-year-old looked comfortable away from her usual figure hugging dresses.

She clearly had her extensions in too because her honey blonde locks seemed longer than normal.

Although we saw Mark Wright leave our TOWIE screens with an emotional goodbye it seems Lauren's interest in the man she said she 'doesn't like' hasn't waned.

She posted on Twitter during the event: 'On PA in brentwood missing @imacelebrity but I've heard a lot about it and some funny things!! Haha I hope everyone having fun watching it x (sic).

But perhaps her enthusiasm for the show is directed at another male as she later said: 'On way home 2 watch @imacelebrity and can't wait to see @russell_kane on @itv2 haha!x (sic).'

The 120 seat Indian restaurant, which used to be called the Headley Arms, allowed guests at the opening to mingle freely with the local celebrity.

Ahead of the launch businessman Faruk Kamali, the man behind the new eatery, told Brentwood Weekly News: 'Most of the locals have probably not tried authentic Indian cuisine, but I am positive that once they visit Headley Spice, they will love the food.'

Faruk has catered for some of Hollywood's top celebrities but was still excited to be working with Lauren.

He added: 'We have cooked for celebrities all over the world, including Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion, but I think catering for Lauren Goodger, a true Essex girl who’s popular locally and across the country, will be a fantastic experience.'

It has been a party filled few days for Lauren as she was out on Sunday night too.

A host of celebrities attended the launch of the Imagine Spa at Heathrow terminal five's Hilton Hotel.

Lauren Pope and Lauren G had a break from their hectic schedules and took advantage of some well needed relaxation and pampering.

They both had massages and facials and after the party finished retired early to have a rest in their five star room.

Lauren Goodger was suffering with flu and was really run down but seemed better last night at the Indian restaurant.

The TOWIE girls brushed shoulders with Lizzie Cundy, Josie Gibson, Nicola Mclean and a pregnant Michelle Heaton.

Former popstar Michelle also enjoyed a relaxing time at the spa as she showed off her growing baby bump.
