One of the original stars of The Only Way Is Essex could be facing the axe after throwing a diva tantrum during filming.
Lauren Goodger, who has been part of the series since it began in 2010, reportedly complained to producers about her treatment and insisted she was the star of the show.
According to The Sun, the showdown with TOWIE bosses took place at a nightclub on Sunday night when Lauren began moaning about filming delays.
An insider told the paper: "Lauren was screaming at a producer and being a right diva saying the programme treated her appallingly after her scenes kept getting pushed back.
"Bosses were livid as Lauren was already an hour late while the rest of the crew had been there all day filming Arg, Billi and Cara doing the marathon."
The source claims the producer refused to speak to Goodger, who was formerly engaged to Mark Wright, while she was "in that state."
Lauren is said to have threatened to quit and go it alone with her sisters in a bid to become the "new Kardashians".
The Essex girl later tweeted: "Never been so angry in all my life! All I can say is what a shame. Think about time spread my wings a lot things arising @NicolaGoodger @RiannaGoodger x."
The Sun reports that Lauren will not film any new scenes until she has met with producers.
