SHE'S ONE of the most recognisable faces on reality TV – but fans said they were struggling to spot Lauren Goodger in a recent image posted to her Instagram.
The Towie star, 32, shared a snap of herself beside pal Chloe Ferry looking dramatically different, sparking suggestions she's had more work done.
Previously, the ex-girlfriend of Mark Wright has revealed she has in the past undergone a variety of cosmetic surgery.
But in the now-deleted image – which showed her pose for the camera in a plunging black top alongside the Geordie Shore regular and another friend – the star's followers suggested she had become "unrecognisable".
One person wrote: "So sad. Girls you are all soooo beautiful but Lauren you are becoming unrecognisable. Please stop the procedures and be you."
Another commented: "I have always been a fan of you, but you have become very unrecognisable, I don’t have have issues with any cosmetic work but there is a point when you have had too much."
Sources close to Lauren have denied she has had any new procedures, telling OK! Online that "it’s just a filter. A friend took the photo and edited it on an app called Lightroom".
But last year, friends told Closer magazine she had a "surgery addiction" as a result of her "crippling insecurities" triggered by a string of failed relationships which have knocked her confidence.
However, on her latest Instagram post, her 764k followers rushed to compliment her.
On her latest picture she was called "gorgeous", "beautiful" and "stunning" by adoring fans.

Lauren famously slimmed down by 4st to a size 8, and said she used the workouts in her 2016 fitness DVD for her weight loss.
She has also denied claims by Closer magazine that she'd had a £10,000 butt lift in 2016, and insisted her larger bum is the result of weight training and "feeding her bum".
However, she has confirmed certain cosmetic surgery is behind her astonishing transformation since she stepped into the limelight on the ITV show in 2010…
£6k boob job for 'floppy chest'
Lauren revealed in 2014 that her breasts had been enlarged from a 34D to a 34E in a £6,000 procedure.
"I've always had big boobs and where I've done extreme yo-yo dieting, exercise and then not doing anything at all, I felt like my chest had lost a bit of volume on the top," she told new! magazine.
"They're very similar to my old boobs but they've got more volume rather than them flopping down a bit."
In 2017, she revealed that she was considering getting a boob reduction, saying that it will be "better" to breastfeed a baby.
Liposuction for 'lumps and bumps'
In 2018, Lauren revealed she'd had liposuction to help with her "lumps and bumps"
In an Instagram post, she wrote: "Keeping the swelling down and shape sculpted on my body my stomach is rock hard and toned thanks to @elitecosmeticsurgery who helped me remove any lumps and bumps!"
£4k nose job to 'fix injury'
The star has also said she had a £4,000 nose job in 2011.
Lauren insisted to Now it was to remove a bump caused when her nephew "accidentally dropped a metal fire engine on my face" and which looked "really awful" on screen.
"My family tell me it looks really natural," she said of the result of her rhinoplasty.
However, she told new! magazine that the procedure has caused her issues since.
"I might get my nose checked, because I can't breathe through it," she revealed.
"Now it makes me snore and I can't stand it. It's so annoying."
Lip and jaw fillers – but 'never again'
Lauren announced in 2016 that she would no longer be having lip fillers after five years of injections.
"2016 was the year to get my lip fillers removed after nearly five years of constant top-ups," she told the Daily Mail.
"I have lovely full natural lips so it's finally time to embrace them."
However, five months later she appeared to have decided to regain her fuller pout, and in December she told Fabulous that "I'm not as bad as some".
In 2018, Lauren said she'd had botched filler in her jawline – days after fans noticed her face had changed – and in a video of a trip to the doctors to dissolve the filler she said she was "getting her old face back".
In March of this year, she opened up about having jaw fillers as well occasional Botox.
"I need them bad. I don't have it like everyone else does. I have it done once or twice a year," she told new! magazine.
"I had the filler in my jaw. At first I thought: 'Wow!' But when I got papped – I'm not joking – I looked like The Mask.
"Five days later I got it dissolved. I'd never get filler in my face again."
