One of Lauren Goodger’s recent Instagram selfies prompted comments such as, “What have you done to your face?” and, “Oh my god can’t believe this picture, it’s actually sad to look at.”

But even though the former TOWIE star’s followers are begging her to stop altering her looks, we’re told she’s planning a holiday and a fresh round of surgery. And she has a particular inspiration for the trip – rapper Lil’ Kim.

“Lauren wants a drastic new look and so she’s been researching all the plastic surgeons the celebs use in the US,” a source close to the star tells heat.

“She’s found a clinic in New York, which is where Lil’ Kim got all her work done. She’s barely recognisable these days, but Lauren thinks she looks great.”

Reality star Lauren – whose previous surgery reportedly includes a nose job, lip, cheek and jawline fillers and Botox, liposuction and boob implants – is said to have worried her friends with the extremes she’s willing to go to.

“Her friends are really alarmed – they’re concerned Lauren’s going to come back looking feline-like, with that cat-eyes effect,” says the insider.

“They worry she’s on her way to resembling the Bride of Wildenstein. They don’t know when she’s going to see sense. She seems to have lost all perspective of what she looks like.”

It was recently reported that the 33 year old had demanded fans delete pictures of her taken at an event in Mallorca. We’re told Lauren is desperate to be in control over how she is seen in public.

“Her friends have accused her of being in denial,” our source says. “They’ve told her she can’t keep asking people to delete pics because she doesn’t like them, but Lauren only wants fans to see pictures she approves of.

"Her friends have tried to remind her that she is fighting a losing battle, and it would make more sense to lay off all the procedures and fillers. But Lauren has made it clear that she’s not happy with the work she’s had done and isn’t going to stop until it’s right.”

Meanwhile, the source adds that Lauren’s hoping that by going to even more aesthetic extremes, she might boost her career.

“She’s excited to see surgeons who deal with international stars like Lil’ Kim,” we’re told. “She feels it’s going to push her career to the next level, and might even get her noticed in America.”
