Lauren Goodger engages in a tense phone call after being branded a 'half wit' ...

Lauren Goodger was pictured stepping out on Wednesday, after being branded a 'half wit' for her comments on the life-saving coronavirus vaccine.

Piers Morgan, 55, branded former TOWIE star Lauren, 34, an 'imbecile' for saying she will not take the COVID-19 vaccine - despite 'shoving filler in her lips', earlier in the day on Good Morning Britain.

Hours later, Lauren appeared tense as she took a phone call while strolling through a car park back to her Mercedes 4x4 following a shopping trip in Essex.

Lauren wrapped up in a padded black jacket, which was layered over a jumper and wide-legged trousers with trainers. 

The reality personality appeared to go make-up free for her outing, while she wore her brunette locks swept back off her face into a ponytail. 

Despite also claiming she 'doesn't believe in masks', Lauren appeared to be following guidelines as she carried a blue mask in her hand on the trip.

She was joined by her boyfriend Charles Drury, 23, who could be seen getting out of the lavish vehicle with his girlfriend.

She also claimed she 'doesn't believe' in face masks and likened the virus to a cold. 

Speaking on Wednesday's Good Morning Britain, an incensed Piers questioned how Lauren could refuse the vaccine but inject herself with fillers - before imploring the public 'not to listen to these imbeciles'.

He said: 'Lauren Goodger, who I'm informed is a TOWIE babe, has gone public having a go about the Covid vaccine on the day we discovered a million people in this country have the virus and we're obviously in a desperate situation.

'She said she's terrified of the vaccine and has already had Covid and didn't die, so obviously it's not a problem.

'She said I don't like taking medicine or antibiotics. Lauren said: 'I'm more scared of the vaccine than I am the virus'… really?' 

'She said: 'I don't like taking medicine, I won't take antibiotics but I do do aesthetics'... what?'

'Here's a picture of Lauren Goodger. What do you think she's been shoving in her face?

'Where does that come from, Lauren? What have you been injecting into those lips? Did you check where it came from or check what it is? 

'These people are absolute half-wits. They're quarter-wits. They are getting attention on social media. They are already giving their views to millions of impressionable people and they're not getting challenged.

'My point is these reality stars are stuffing their faces with plastic fillings, surgery and injections and so on and then banging on about vaccines.

'It's ridiculous. Do not listen to these imbeciles. It will cost lives.

It's got to stop. They are wielding a really unhealthy noise to this debate which will deter young people from taking this serious.

'I look at her face. She has put loads of stuff in those
