Lauren Goodger has avoided looking in the mirror for the past two years.
The 'Only Way Is Essex' beauty - who split from her fiance, co-star Mark Wright, last week - admits she feels so down about her curves that she forced 'TOWIE' bosses to let her film her promo video for the upcoming third series of the ITV2 show six times.
She said: "I've avoided mirrors for a few years. I look at Victoria's Secret models and I think, 'B****y hell, I would love to look like that'.
"I couldn't go to Marbella and now and wear a bikini - I'd cover up. We filmed a promo and I got them to shoot mine six times because I looked fat."
The 24-year-old star also explained Mark used to tell her she would get the same opportunities as former 'TOWIE' cast member Amy Childs - who is currently appearing on 'Celebrity Big Brother' - if she lost weight.
In an interview conducted prior to the couple's split, Lauren added to heat magazine: "I think Mark loves me for me. He says to me, 'You're the best-looking girl on that show. If you had that amazing body.'
"He says I am so much more beautiful than Amy, but because of her body she gets to pose for Vogye and I think that he's right."
