Lauren Goodger is leaving Essex for Dancing on Ice. We disapprove

It’s a sad day for TOWIE – tonight is Lauren Goodger‘s last episode. I’m gutted. What will we do without Lauren and her, um, artistic bronzer?

No really, I’m actually upset. TOWIE has recently got its stride back – and now stalwart Lauren is leaving camp! Boo, hiss, etc.

Lauren is a sure bet for fights and tears. Who will Jessica and Carol Wright bitch at now that Lauren‘s off on her skates for January’s new series of Dancing On Ice? I’m genuinely worried.

I guess you could say that it’s brave of Lauren to bow out before the show eventually reaches its end…

But the cynic in me says that Dancing On Ice is just another way for Lauren to have her umpteenth body transformation and sell her story again. And again. Snooze…

TOWIE bosses seem to be relaxing their rules slightly about former stars leaving and returning, with an official spokesman commenting that Lauren will take a break, and won’t appear in the next series.’

So she could theoretically come back one day.

Just promise me one thing, Loz – don’t go getting back with Mark Wright now that you’re out of our watchful gaze for a few months!

And dare I mention the words Mark Wright’s Hollywood Nights? Shudder. Whatever you do, Lauren – please don’t EVER attempt a solo TV show.
