She might have been knocked by her ex Mark Wright ­but former TOWIE star Lauren is hitting back...

Lauren Goodger has been drawn back into a row with her ex Mark Wright after he mentioned her again in an interview and it seems it’s still going to be while until she can put her former fiancee well and truly in her past.

Mark publicly messaged Lauren, who he was with for 10 years, on Twitter earlier this year, urging her to stop talking about him and his wife Michelle Keegan. But now he’s mentioned Lauren.

Mark, 28, Tweeted Lauren while on his honeymoon, saying: ‘Respect my wife and STOP,’ after she posted a series of cryptic Instagram pics, which she said were about on-off boyfriend Jake McLean but many thought were digs at Mark and Michelle.

The ex-TOWIE star’s now defended his decison, saying: ‘I didn’t know how else to get my point across. I’m not going to talk to her, I’m not going to do interviews, so my last resort after taking so much was this… I had to stand up for myself and my wife and beg her to stop.’

On the day the interview was published, Lauren, 28, kept a dignified silence, only reTweeting a fan who posted: ‘God @laurengoodger literally gets slated for everything she does! Poor girl can’t do nowt without getting abuse hurled at her!’

She then wrote in her New! column: ‘The story claimed my posts show I haven’t moved on from past relationships – that’s ridiculous! As I’ve said before, lots of things I post can relate to most people’s relationships, not just mine!’

Lauren’s reps have since issued a statement: ‘Mark is right – this situation is incredibly embarrassing. Week after week Lauren has to suffer endless source story lies printed about her in the press surrounding Mark. The list is as long as it is ridiculous.’

A source says: ‘Lauren has moved on and she’s happy with Jake. It’s frustrating Mark’s doing the very thing he’s cricitised her for. It’s embarrassing and she wishes he would just leave the past in the past. She feels like she can’t win.’
