Bleary eyed: Tara Palmer Tomkinson looking the worse for wear outside The Box nightclub in Soho

It was never going to be long before Britain's most renowned It Girl was photographed outside the country's most talked-about new nightspot.

And Tara Palmer-Tomkinson clearly enjoyed her evening at The Box, the Soho venue at the centre of controversy over its risqué burlesque performances.

A seriously good night? Tara looks as if she had a hell of a time inside the notorious Soho club

It had all started so well : Tara, right seen earlier in the evening, and left, looking seriously bedraggled after leaving The Box

The socialite, 39, was pictured leaving in the early hours of yesterday morning looking very much the worse for wear.

The sleazy club has become increasingly popular with celebrities - and even royals - for its performances featuring topless women and reputedly live sex acts.

Unsteady: Tara leant on the club wall for support and appeared to be exchanging words with the doorman

Bloody hellish: Tara shows off a cut on her finger as she finally leaves the club

However, it's not clear what events occurred inside the Soho nightspot that left the heiress looking quite so shell-shocked.

As she left she appeared to be having words with one of the burly doormen, and even got involved in a flashmob like impromptu dance party
in the street.

Accident: Tara's spokesperson explained she cut her finger while picking up her handbag from under the table

She was also spotted by onlookers slumped against a wall outside of the club, was also nursing a cut on her finger.

Tara's spokesperson explained: ' She cut her finger quite deeply while picking up her handbag from under the table.

'She caught it on broken glass. Tara then left to have it treated and was naturally in shock.'

Boogie night: Tara keeps the party going in the street

The club has been visited by Prince Harry who spent an evening there with friends in February.

While actress Keira Knightley and cricketer Kevin Pietersen have also been pictured at the venue.

But Tara clearly was keen to check it out for herself and left looking like she'd enjoyed it a bit too much.

The evening had started so well, as the socialite looked sleek in her rock-chick outfit before hitting the club.

Party on: Tara carries on partying in the street and playfully takes party goers cap

She had attended the Quintessentially Awards at 1 Marylebone and left looking like the party was already in full swing as as she made her way to The Box.

It had been a different story earlier in the day when she was snapped looking much more presentable as she decided to match her outfit with the weather.

She donned a pair of red hot jeans, showing off her slim legs with a skinny fit, as she headed out for a shopping trip yesterday.
