LAU­REN Pope has given her first in­ter­view about her ro­mance with TOWIE cast mate Jon Clark, re­veal­ing that it’s “weird” and is un­likely to last.

The re­al­ity TV favourite has had some se­ri­ous Es­sex dat­ing dis­as­ters in the past – Lewis Bloor and Kirk Nor­cross spring to mind!

And de­spite ad­mit­ting the pair have great chem­istry, Lau­ren is the first to ad­mit her fling with Jon will prob­a­bly end in tears.

Es­pe­cially if his ex, Chloe Crowhurst from this year’s Love Is­land, has any­thing to do with it. Lau­ren told me: “Jon and I are dat­ing but it is very early days. We aren’t lovedup but do like each other a lot. “Every­one thinks it is strange and we are the first to ad­mit it is a bit weird. “But it is real and isn’t a show­mance. “I ac­tu­ally re­ally fan­cied him when he was on Love Is­land in 2015 and we first got chat­ting ages ago so it’s not as ran­dom as peo­ple think.”

Lau­ren added: “We are both very re­al­is­tic. We know TOWIE’s his­tory for re­la­tion­ships. There are few happy end­ings, so I think we are both be­ing over-cau­tious and lead­ing with our heads.” Lau­ren says the cou­ple’s big­gest prob­lem is Chloe, who ended her long-term re­la­tion­ship with Jon when she dumped him to en­ter ITV2’s Love Is­land this sum­mer.

Lau­ren added: “We have had our ups and downs al­ready.

“It’s a funny one with Jon be­cause he’s been through a lot with Chloe, which has left him with trust is­sues.

“I don’t know the full ins and outs of the sit­u­a­tion so don’t want to judge Chloe, but it is the cause of a lot of prob­lems.”

Catch the lat­est drama on ITVBe tonight at 10pm.

Lau­ren is cur­rently cel­e­brat­ing the 10th birth­day of her hair ex­ten­sions brand Hair Re­hab Lon­don. See hair­re­hablon­ for de­tails.
