Lauren Goodger swaps Dubai for CLACTON as she hits beach close to home

Lauren Goodger swaps Dubai for CLACTON as she suns herself on the beach closer to home amid COVID-19 travel restrictions to her favoured holiday destination

She’s often been seen sharing envy-inducing social media snaps from the balmy shores of Dubai, which has emerged as one of her favoured holiday spots.

But Lauren Goodger was spotted sunning herself on the beach of a considerably more local town over the weekend, as she paid a visit to Essex’s Clacton-on-Sea.

The former TOWIE star, 33, was seen donning a black beach dress as she made the most of Britain’s sweltering heatwave, amid COVID-19 travel restrictions to Dubai.

Donning a pair of sunglasses and wearing her brunette locks in a relaxed updo, the reality star looked relaxed and happy as she chatted away with a friend.

She blended in with the crowd of sun seekers who were seen donning swimwear as they frolicked along the sandy shores and topped up their tans.

While a number of celebrities have made a beeline for such destinations as Spain, France and Portugal, Lauren will have to wait until she can visit Dubai once again.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) issued a blanket warning against all non-essential international travel in March.

And while the travel restriction was lifted for some 67 destinations from 4 July, with some of those air bridges since being recalled, Dubai wasn’t on the list.

Effective from 1 August, all visitors to the United Arab Emirates must have received a negative PCR COVID-19 test result within the 96 hours prior to their arrival. 

It appeared that Lauren had returned to the same beach on Sunday, as she posted selfies to her Instagram account, as she donned a bikini.

Lauren let her ample cleavage bask in the scorching British sunshine as she spent a day away from Essex in a bid to ‘escape from everything’.

She was bronzed to perfection as she posed on the coastline wearing a simple black bikini top.

Lauren left little to the imagination as she showcased her curvy figure and puckered her lips for a selfie. 

Her highlighted brown tresses were swept effortlessly to the side and her makeup mirrored a neutral and warm toned palette.

Lauren wore a pair of statement ’60s inspired tinted shades to protect herself from the glaring British rays. 

She delicately placed her hand under her chin for the poised yet sultry Instagram snap. 

The reality star captioned the image: ‘I followed my heart and it led me too the beach…. days like this where I can escape from everything.

‘Nothing I more love that the sound of the Sea, sand and the sun #LeaveMeB #clearhead #comingback #recharged.’

Lauren came under fire last, week after she was accused of enhancing her social media images with photo editing tools. 

On Wednesday, she hit back at ‘vile, nasty, evil’ trolls in a lengthy rant.

The former TOWIE star vowed to be even more ‘successful, sexy and confident’ than ever after her followers criticised her for enhancing her appearance in a white bikini. 

In a lengthy rant, Lauren wrote: ‘Please look at every other celebs page comments who are posting pics of them with @boombod and please look at mine!

‘Same brand and same pics! This is why I never take ANYTHING seriously what my “hating” followers say. They just want any excuse to hate and make vile, nasty, evil comments.’

Lauren has defended other celebrities such as Kylie Jenner- who was called out for a Photoshop blunder- and she has accused fans of fuelling hate out of jealousy. 

She added: ‘Some people that follow me are just pure jealousy. It’s actually disgusting. Someone said I should never be allowed children and I’m mentally deranged. 

‘I have PTs “professionals” (my a**e)! using their own profile by slagging me off and putting clown emojis over my face.

‘It’s any excuse to try and bring me down! But it’s so wrong. How dare you. But one thing about me is I will never let you win! You will never bully me to try and make your ugly selves feel better…’
