Did Mark Wright get it on with his ex Lauren before going down under?

When The Only Way Is Essex stars Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger called off their engagement three months ago, we thought that would be the end of their relationship merry-go-round.

But oh, how wrong we were!

A little birdie tells us that trousersnake Mark, 24, got hot and heavy with Lauren the day before he packed his trunk and headed, um, down under for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Seeing as our favourite Essex boy’s currently eating mealworms in the jungle, we weren’t able to press him for details.

While Lauren‘s publicist denied the hook-up, when we ran into the star herself at a showbiz bash and asked about it, there was certainly no denial.

Instead, she sheepishly said: Haha! Ooh, maybe, but then I wouldn’t tell a journalist, would I?’

Hmm, she’s not exactly Jack Bauer when it comes to withstanding interrogation, is she?
