Lau­ren Goodger has a cun­ning plan to get a man: she’s lost weight to look like her ex Mark Wright’s wife, Michelle Kee­gan. Ge­nius

She’s lost 18lbs, but it’s not enough

Heat (UK) - - Deep -

When your spe­cial skill is yo-yo di­et­ing, you bet­ter be­lieve los­ing 18lbs in the space of a few weeks is a big deal for Lau­ren Goodger. But in­sid­ers tell heat it’s not enough for the re­al­ity star, who has set her­self a tar­get de­signed specif­i­cally to an­noy ex-boyfriend Mark Wright… “Lau­ren is telling ev­ery­one she wants to look bet­ter than Mark’s wife, Michelle Kee­gan – and thin­ner,” says an in­sider close to the 31 year old, who dated Mark, 31, on and off for ten years be­fore split­ting for good in 2011. “She’s lost 18lbs, but she’s not stop­ping un­til she’s ‘win­ning’.”

Last week, the for­mer TOWIE star un­veiled her lat­est weight loss on In­sta­gram, cred­it­ing a21­day juice cleanse in Por­tu­gal, run by Ja­son Vale. Lau­ren said she felt “pow­er­ful” af­ter “pure juic­ing, hikes, some train­ing, and ei­ther a small salad or soup of an evening.”

“Lau­ren looks great and she’s on cloud nine,” says the in­sider. “She doesn’t want to be re­ally skinny, she just wants to look hot. She has a ‘woman’s body’ and she’s happy with that. Lau­ren al­ways says how ev­ery­one thinks stick-thin is sexy, but re­ally it’s just un­healthy. Her girl crush is Kelly Brook – she thinks she’s stun­ning.”

And friends say Lau­ren’s not stop­ping with bikini shots on so­cial me­dia. “She wants to pose for Play­boy be­fore be­com­ing a mum,” says an in­sider close to the broody star, who has spo­ken openly about her plans to have a baby in 2018. “Lau­ren says she’s had more com­pli­ments than ever in the past few weeks, and she wants to make the most of it be­fore get­ting baby-ready later in the year. That also means find­ing a man who would make a good hus­band and fa­ther!”

But in­sid­ers say the TV star, who ad­mit­ted to hav­ing lipo in Jan­uary, might not be able to keep the weight off for long. “As with all Lau­ren’s di­ets, it’s another faddy one,” says the source. “Yes, she has lost weight, but she will al­most cer­tainly put it all back on again. Lau­ren her­self says she can eas­ily put on a stone in a week if she’s not care­ful!” n
