The 33-year-old reality star admitted: ‘I have a very weird crush and everyone thinks I’m weird but I think Ricky Gervais is really sexy.’

Well, that certainly wasn’t who we expected! Lauren also reckons Ricky is pretty funny, which ‘is what a good marriage is about’.

So what are Lauren’s plans this crimbo?

‘This is actually the first Christmas I’m going to be abroad – I’m going on holiday with some friends and I’ve got a DJ gig on Christmas eve so I’ve accumulated a little gang together and we’re all going to go awya and be sat in the sun,’ explained the fashionista.

‘It will just be nice to get my friends and have a day of not having to think about anything – just go and have some wine and some nice food,’ added Lauren.

Ahhh, sounds bliss!

Speaking about her ideal festive tipple, Ms Pope admitted that she’s not really a mulled wine drinker.

‘I usually stick to wine. I don’t like port or anything like that,’ said Lauren.
