TOWIE’s Lauren Pope shows off her new look

Time for some sit ups: Lauren proved that there's never a wrong time to do exercise

TOWIE star Lauren Pope recently had to deal with the fallout from the PIP breast implant scandal, having to have her own implants removed – something which Lauren bravely shared with viewers of the reality show.

It would now seem that the blonde star is over the recovery period and is proudly showing off her new DD cups.

The TOWIE star was spotted on Santa Monica Beach earlier this week, sporting a tiny animal print bikini, proudly showing off her post surgery look.

Lauren looked delighted with her new figure as she strolled along the white sands, covering up later in a mint green kaftan as she made her way back to her hotel.

The pretty blonde star has just returned from her holiday in Los Angeles with her best friend and TOWIE co-star Chloe Sims.

As well as flaunting her new cleavage, Lauren also showed off her noticeably healthier-looking figure, after gaining weight to take her up to a size eight.


Lauren, who dropped to a tiny size six following her split from Kirk Norcross, said recently of her weight gain: ‘I was desperate to put on weight and now everyone says I look a lot healthier. My collarbone and ribs aren’t jutting out any more – I feel sexier!

‘I didn’t feel like myself when I was a size 6 – I looked so tired and skinny.’

Lauren first had breast implants at the age of 23, when she spent £4,000 to take her from a 34B to a 34D.

But in January, Lauren admitted that she was terrified after discovering that she had been given PIP implants.

About 40,000 British women received the type of implant, manufactured by French company Poly Implant Prostheses (PIP), which has now closed.

They were filled with non-medical grade silicone intended for use in mattresses.

Although she was initially afraid of having the operation Lauren took the opportunity to slightly increase her bust size.

She said earlier this month: ‘I always try to put a positive spin on things.

‘I’d never been fully happy with the shape and position of my first set, so why not use this to my advantage?

‘I’ve gone up another size, so I’m a DD now and they’re a slightly different shape.’

Lauren is now back in the UK working hard filming the fifth season of The Only Way Is Essex.
