The Only Way Is Essex star wants to prove she's over her ex

Lauren Goodger has found romance again with her TOWIE co-star Tom Pearce, 22, but she admits she’ll always love ex-boyfriend Mark Wright.

The former couple, who were briefly engaged, dated on/off for 10 years and even though they split last August, Lauren has struggled to move on – until now.

I’ll love Mark for the rest of my life,’ says Lauren, 25.

And I’ll never forget sharing so much with him.

I’m surprised he hasn’t been in touch in the last couple of weeks but, deep down, I’m sure he just wants me to be happy.’

Lauren realises Tom might be jealous about her feelings for Mark, 25.

It’s a threat, isn’t it?’ she says.

I think all guys worry I’ll go back to Mark. I’d think the same. But there’s nothing I can do except prove otherwise.’
