Lauren Goodger confused fans yesterday as she uploaded pouty selfies and numerous snapchat posts during her grandmother Patricia’s funeral.

The former The Only Way is Essex star seemed to document the event throughout the day on Wednesday 18 September, sharing several live stories on Instagram.

In one of them, she recorded the procession as she captioned it: “What a wonderful lady and beautiful service today, thank you!

“Makes you realise and love my family.”


Later, Goodger – who celebrated her 33rd birthday yesterday - turned the camera on herself as she captured posed photos and videos with her mother and cousin Jasmine. As she said ‘hello’ to more family members, her sister Rianna could be seen sticking her tongue out at her followers.

Fans of the TV personality took to Twitter to share how unimpressed they were with her behaviour, with one onlooker claiming that the posts rendered them “speechless.”

"Even on the day of her own gran’s funeral, @LaurenGoodger is still snapchatting pictures of herself! #selfobsessed,” one said.

"Only Lauren Goodger could use a funeral as an excuse for a photo opp, the lassies no right," one joked, as another added: "Wow I've seen it all now Lauren Goodger filming and posing at her nan's funeral. Is nothing private anymore. What a sad world we live in."

“Have a day off. My god man,” a fourth urged.
