Could this be the end for on-off couple Lauren Goodger and Jake McLean?

We were devastated to hear that Lauren Goodger and Jake McLean have finally decided to call it a break. The pair’s split, announced in New! magazine, follows a rocky patch in their relationship which not even a recent romantic getaway to Paris could not resolve.

‘Me and Jake aren’t talking at the moment,’ Lauren told the publication, and haven’t done for about a week now. He’s not currently staying with me and I am focusing on my training, my career and myself. Sometimes you just need five minutes out, and I’m so busy right now that I haven’t really had a chance to stop and give our situation any proper thought.’

The pair first split in Decemeber 2013 after they had been together for over a year. They split after the launch of Lauren’s tanning business Lauren’s Way made it difficult for them to spend time together, the former-TOWIE star explained to New!, but reunited last May to give their relationship another go. Lauren was so committed to making it work that she even got a tattoo of Jake’s tattoo on her wrist, but it seems it was enough to keep the couple together.

‘We haven’t had any major rows and nothing has actually happened,’ she explained, ‘but we are both stressed out with our own lives and I seem to bear the brunt of it. It’s been horrible but what I do know is that I can’t afford to have anything or anyone distract me from my focus.’ The pair have also unfollowed each other on Instagram, with Jake deleting every photograph of Lauren from his account. You’re breaking our hearts!

 

It’s no secret that busy lives can take a big toll of relationships, but we really hope the pair can resolve their differences and make up. Is there any hope? Writing in her New! column, Lauren assured her fans: ‘I will get my head round it all in time and work out what I want.’ Our fingers are firmly crossed.
