TOWIE's hottest couple end their romance

The Only Way Is Essex stars Kirk Norcross and Lauren Pope have called time on their relationship.

The reality TV couple, who also split briefly in March, lived together and had shared responsibility of a bulldog named Bozo.

‘Blacksheep Management today sadly announce that the relationship between Lauren Pope and Kirk Norcross has broken down,’ the couple’s management Tweeted this morning.

‘Unfortunately, Kirk no longer felt committed towards Lauren and decided the right decision for both parties was to separate.’

Kirk, 23, and model Lauren, 27, recently visited a London surgeon together for his and hers nose jobs and also prompted rumours of engagement when they were snapped trawling jewellery shops.

But it seems that away from the cameras their relationship couldn’t survive.

No other party is involved in this decision,‘ says a second Tweet, ‘they hope to remain friends moving forward.’
