Lauren Goodger has been branded "ridiculous" by the owners of Sheesh after she claimed they kicked her out of the restaurant in Essex last week because her ex-boyfriend Mark Wright wanted to eat there.
The former "The Only Way is Essex" star has hit out at the staff at the plush eatery after they allegedly asked her to leave the premises when they heard the handsome presenter - who is now married to Michelle Keegan - was about to turn up for some grub and they didn't want any trouble on site.
However, the restaurant has now taken to its official Twitter account to slam Lauren's version of events and has revealed the 30-year-old star was asked to leave because she didn't have a booking and allegedly sat down on someone else's table so that she could have a chinwag with some of her pals.
The statement posted online reads: "So @laurengoodger still going on, she was asked to leave last Wednesday because she never had a booking, she walked into the restaurant sat on someone else's table who she didn't know so she could talk to her 2 friends who were sat on the table opposite, we do not accept this behaviour at Sheesh.
"@markwright has never asked me to remove Lauren (ridiculous statement). I have strict rules at Sheesh that the management MUST follow. 1) Diners only. 2) Smart shoes. It doesn't matter who u are (sic)."
The manager's determination to set the record straight come just days after Lauren lashed out at Mark -
who she dated on and off for 10 years until 2012 - for allegedly thinking he's "better" than her.
She said: "I think he's always thought he's better than me. He never wanted me on "TOWIE" as it was "his" show. He thinks he's better than the show now and I come with it, so that's why he dismisses me. It doesn't go with his new image ... I think he's the fakest person you'll ever meet in your life and I think he uses people to get what he wants ... he needs to get over himself."
