Making a point? Lauren Goodger wore a very low-backed dress to Jessica Wright's With Love Jessica shop launch in Loughton last night, revealing some suspicious scratches

She's made it clear that she is well and truly over long-term love and ex-fiance Mark Wright, and has refused to discuss the break-up in interviews.

But intriguing pictures of Lauren Goodger from Jessica Wright's lingerie shop party in Essex last night may spark questions as to how she has been spending her new free time.

The 25-year-old showed off scratches on her back in what looked like a deliberately low-cut dress as she arrived at the With Love Jessica launch.

Patched things up? The 25-year-old looked unusually friendly with Sam Faiers, who has dated Lauren's ex-fiance Mark Wright in the past

Lauren sported a sparkly turquoise number teamed with open-toed tights which revealed scarlet nail varnish.

The deep-scooped back looked like it was designed to make the fresh marks on her back as visible as possible.

The scratches, which looked like they had been made by someone's nails, were clearly new, but Lauren obviously wasn't bothered as she made no attempt to hide them.

Lauren’s spokesperson has commented: ‘Lauren finds the interest in a few scratches in her back rather amusing and has no idea where the scratches came from. She can only she assume she may have scratched her back.’

Smiling and looking relaxed, Lauren appeared to be unusually friendly with Mark's other ex Sam Faiers, who also endured a break-up over the summer with series favourite Joey Essex.

Moving on: Lauren has revealed that she aborted Mark's baby when she was 20, but is reluctant to discuss the break up further

The pair have never been close due to rivalry over Mark, but it appeared that they had put the past behind them.

High-spirited Lauren was clearly keen to let her hair down, and tweeted 'In faces looooooooool feels like good old days haha!x'

And she wasn't too shy to advertise her new closeness with Sam, adding: 'In faces with trips jess sam billie n the gang having a wicked night round 2 ha x love hollie kane n sam kisses hahaha oh dear x'

Brief appearance: Mark Wright turned up to the With Love Jessica launch to support his sister, but left the party before Lauren arrived

Mark made a brief appearance to support his sister Jessica at the launch of her new lingerie business, which he has funded, before leaving for a promotional appearance in Liverpool.

Making the night a family affair was their mother Carol, 50, and 73-year-old grandmother Patricia Brooker, aka 'Nanny Pat'.

A friend of Lauren's has said that she is enjoying her freedom after years of being under Mark's thumb.

Happy couple: James 'Arg' Argent and Lydia Bright both attended, though poorly Lydia left early

'He would try and control where she went and ban her from trips and nights out with their friends, saying that having a girlfriend with him all the time wasn't good for his image,' they revealed.

Lauren has come under fire from Mark recently for revealing that she aborted their baby when she was 20.

Sister act: Sam and Billie Faiers both donned animal print for their appearance

24-year-old Mark, who cited their non-existent sex life as a reason for the break-up, has said that he had sobbed 'That could have been my little David Beckham' after the termination.

The former club owner told OK magazine: 'I can never go back to her now. I had been questioning whether I’ve done the right thing, but after that interview? That is it.'

But though Lauren tweeted that she hadn't 'cried like this in a while' after reading Mark's comments, she has made a very convincing show of being completely over her former fiance.
