Towie star Lauren Goodger was the victim of loutish thugs last night (February 15th) when her new salon was petrol bombed shortly after 10pm, less than 24 hours after it opened its doors for its first day of business.

Police camped outside the boutique, named Lauren’s Way, until this morning, when Goodger arrived to size up the damage in what must have been a devastating moment for the reality star.

The 25-year-old turned up outside the Buckhurst Hill-based salon looking somewhat dismayed as she sported a black ensemble comprised of a leather jacket, leggings and blouse.

The star offset the look with a trailing white scarf and gold ladies designer watch, while her dark tresses flowed down her shoulders.

Comrade Chantelle Houghton was there to support Goodger, and owned the site prior to Lauren purchasing it.

Despite her high street outlet being closed for business after the attack, there was no mention of the petrol bombing on its associated website,, which was still advertising tanning products.
