Before becoming a reality TV star, Lauren Pope was born in Torquay.  

She attended Torquay Girls’ Grammar School and later moved to London to focus on her career.

Lauren started glamour modelling in the early noughties, while trying to build her name as a DJ, and featured in various magazines including Nuts, Zoo, FHM, Loaded and MixMag.

She also made regular appearances on Page 3.

Lauren was linked to Prince Harry in 2004. The pair swapped numbers and he asked to meet up but Lauren declined the offer as she didn’t have time to get ready.

In 2007, she began DJing professionally and gained a large UK and international following. Nuts later titled her The World’s Sexiest DJ.

That same year, Lauren launched her own line of clip-in hair extensions called Hair Rehab London.

The star appeared on the ITV reality series Tycoon. Despite coming in fourth place, she continued to work with Peter Jones on expanding her business.

Hair Rehab London was soon picked up and endorsed by celebrity hairdresser Mikey Kardashian.

Lauren Pope made her first appearance in the ITV2 structured reality programme The Only Way Is Essex in 2010.

The glamorous star hooked up with castmate Kirk Norcross on the show. 

In summer 2011, Lauren and Kirk had his and hers nose jobs. The day after revealing the outcome of their surgery, the couple sadly announced that they had ended their relationship.

The following year, Lauren had to undergo surgery again – this time to get her PIP breast implants removed. She showed her recovery on TOWIE.

In March 2014, Lauren launched her own fashion collection In The Style By Lauren Pope. That June, she released her first dance album The Only Way Is Marbs: Marbella Anthems.
