LAUREN ON ‘STRANGE’ TOWIE FLING
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.”
