She was the focus of much scrutiny last week, after she was outed for breaking the stringent national lockdown rules twice in just 10 days.
And Lauren Goodman, 33, appeared keen to put all scandal behind her over the weekend, when she posed for a series of sizzling selfies in a black swimsuit – while showing she was adhering to the rules by stating that she was at ‘home’.
The former TOWIE star also informed fans that she needed to ‘start a diet ASAP’ as she wowed in a scintillating snap, which showed her resting on her bed.

The reality star showed off her tanned and toned physique in all its glory as she posed for the images, which were uploaded to her Instagram Stories throughout the course of the weekend.
Her series of posts came after she posted and deleted a sexy swimsuit snap within just four minutes on Thursday, after being outed for breaking lockdown twice.
The star shared the snap just hours after it was revealed that she broke lockdown rules for a second time in just 10 days by attending a child’s birthday party – and later pretending she wasn’t there on social media.

Lauren posted the snap – which garnered 97 likes – yet swiftly deleted the promotional image in just four minutes.
MailOnline exclusively revealed that Lauren had broken lockdown. The star posted an Instagram story on Tuesday which showed her friend Georgia’s son Danny blowing out the candles on his birthday cake.
Lauren appeared sad at missing the gathering, writing on the picture ‘Wish I was there’, alongside a crying emoji in a message for her 764,000 followers.

But in a photo obtained by MailOnline, Lauren can be seen at the party, smiling and taking pictures on her phone as the three-year-old is presented with his cake.
A source told MailOnline: ‘Lauren pretended she wasn’t at Danny’s party on her Instagram, but she was there. She was even in the background of the photo she posted while claiming to have been missing out.
‘Lauren hasn’t abided by the lockdown rules at all, which feels unfair to those that have been and are going without celebrating birthdays.’
The reality TV star joined friend Georgia to celebrate her son Danny turning three – despite government guidelines stating that two households are not able to come together inside the home and social distancing must be maintained at two metres.

Instead Lauren entered a second household and was in close contact with several friends and their young children. A spokesperson for Lauren declined to comment when approached by MailOnline.
Lauren’s second breach of the coronavirus lockdown comes just days after she hosted a boozy party at her Essex flat. She claimed she ‘wasn’t aware she couldn’t have friends over’ when MailOnline revealed she had flouted the rules.
Lauren partied alongside a handful of pals including John Haynes, who posted videos of the get-together on Instagram.
A spokesperson for Lauren told MailOnline she accidentally flouted lockdown rules by having a party after ‘seeing other people doing the same on Instagram’.

They also claimed she had since educated herself on the government’s rules to prevent any further wrongdoing.
Speaking in a statement released to MailOnline on May 18, the star’s spokesperson said: ‘Lauren was unaware she wasn’t allowed friends in her house. She was informed this was allowed and that lockdown rules had been lifted slightly…
‘She had also seen people having similar gatherings on other people’s Instagram stories. Lauren has been told to look at the government website and now understands the guidelines.’
