Lauren Goodger has hit back at claims that she edits her social media pictures in a bid to make herself appear slimmer.
The former TOWIE star, 30, has been on a weight loss mission in recent months and regularly shows off her progress by posting pictures of her results to her Instagram account.
But now she’s been forced to deny accusations that she might have been doctoring her pictures, after she and reality TV co-star Frankie Essex both uploaded a similar snap that sparked suspicion amongst fans.
In the photograph in question, Lauren, Frankie and a friend are seen posing together before a birthday night out, all clad in white outfits that show off their trim figures.
Eagle-eyed fans, however, pointed out that Lauren looked different in Frankie’s post than she did in her own, with one writing to the latter: ‘Thanks for showing natural curvy women. Shame Lauren had to photoshop her photo’.
Lauren was quick to respond to the criticism, taking to Twitter to tell her followers that although the images were taken mere moments apart, they were simply taken at different angles with different equipment – hence the difference in her appearance.
‘It’s a different photo and different camera and different angle? We ALL look better in my photo I am not that orange either .. seriously,’ she exclaimed.
‘Seriously it’s laughable!😩😳💤’
‘I honestly don’t know how you deal with the scrutiny day in day out!’ one Twitter user empathised, whilst another agreed: ‘They’ve got nothing better to write about so they’d rather belittle someone about their weight. Bore off!’
‘can tell its a different picture, posture, angles lighting makes a huge difference, even i know that,’ a third chimed in.
‘Cracks me up about this photo with all the photoshop comments…’ another added on Lauren’s original post. ‘It’s not even the same photo that everyone’s comparing, your hands just in a different place 😂 people need to get lives. looking good girls 💋 #girlpower’
