TOWIE’s Lauren Goodger and Mark Wright’s split has got nasty

Mark Wright understands why TOWIE co-star Lauren Goodger, 24, dumped him, but he’s angry about her behaviour since the split.

‘Lauren‘s made me look bad by standing two yards from the paparazzi crying,’ he tells us.

‘She’s doing her utmost to ruin my reputation and it’s a very nasty thing to do.

‘I texted her: “Please stop now, let me just move on, stop hurting me more.”

Mark, 24, denies he’s a playboy who deserved to be given the elbow.

‘I’m not going to deny that when I’m single I’m a bit of a cheeky chap,’ he says, ‘but I’m not a cheat.’
