TOWIE star Kirk has dumped her - again

They’ve been shopping for engagement rings, gone on romantic holidays and even splashed out £4,200 on his’n’hers nose jobs – but none of that has prevented The Only Way Is Essex stars Kirk Norcross and Lauren Pope splitting up for a second time.

When Now caught up with a devastated Lauren last week, she told us she’s stunned’ at Kirk’s decision to end things.

And just like last time, when Kirk publicly dumped her on the show, Lauren says she has no clue why.

With the strain of the break-up etched on her face, Lauren, 27, revealed she feels let down by her boyfriend of 8 months.

I’m in shock,’ she said.

I put my all into a relationship and it’s hard when the other person doesn’t want to make that effort.

‘I don’t have any answers.

‘I’m just trying to get on with it.’
