Slender Brenda: Lauren Goodger showed off a slim figure at the Whitbull restaurant in Essex

Anything Arg can do, Lauren Goodger can do better.

Her former TOWIE co-star may have scooped an abundance of praise for dwindling in size before the London Marathon - and now the 24-year-old appears to have done a vanishing act all of her own.

Mark Wright's former squeeze showed off her slender silhouette at the WhiteBull Brasserie in Essex.

And Lauren shed a little light on the secret to her trim frame - forfeiting the alcohol.

The Loughton restaurant revealed her diet tip on their Twitter page, which she promptly retweeted: 'Party pooper tee totaler @LaurenGoodger in the house with her crew #ShameOnYouNoBooze!'

Lauren kept things simple in a long black dress, complete with plunging neckline and slashed just above her knee to expose her tanned legs.

It's no secret that Lauren has struggled with her weight in the past, and while she looks perfectly curvaceous and healthy, she has worried over being compared to her slighter castmates.

She recently told Grazia: 'There’s this weird fascination with my size. I am curvy, and my weight goes up and down – from day one, the attention always seems to have been on me. It does get you down.

'I think people forget I’m a real person with feelings.'

Lauren also revealed people are surprised when they meet her and discover she's not a size 16.

Last month, the yo-yo dieter embarked on the strict Cambridge Weight Plan, after creeping from a size 8 to a 14 within a year.

The diet involves eating specially prepared meals, shakes and soups - and the ultimate challenge of wiping out coffee, tea and alcohol.

And it seems Lauren has finally conquered the booze cravings, after a source initially told Closer: 'Two days into the diet, she told friends she was drinking low-calorie cocktails.

'Another night, she had vodka and said: "At least there’s no carbs in vodka!" She said she was hoping to stick to the diet – but admitted she was struggling to cut out booze completely.'
