About: "She's Lauren Pope not the f****** pope!" (Mario Falcone, 2014)
TOWIE tree: She dated Kirk for a while and they even bought a pooch called Bozo. Sadly it all went Pete Tong (she's a DJ – geddit?) and it was Kirk, not Bozo, who ended up in the doghouse. She then hooked up with an even younger model in Tom P, but that didn't last very long as he moved onto another Lauren in her friend Lauren Goodger. Pops and Kirk reunited to become 'frenefits', but after a pregnancy scare the pair went their separate ways.
Po-po had a holiday fling with Mario in Vegas. The friends/kissing partners went on a pizza-making date back in Essex, but, like their tasty pizzas, their relationship didn't last long. Mario only saw LP as a friend. He once only saw Popey's bestie, Chloe, as a friend too, but that didn't stop him from going there. Cue: Massive 'Chloren' girl code fallout.
Popey has now found a new BFF in bitchy blogger and fashion guru, Vas. The pair go together like a hot next season co-ord outfit. In fact, Lauren and Vas are so tight, Lauren's ex, Lewis Bloor, asked permission from Vas before plucking up the courage to invite Lauren out for a meal. Lauren and Lewis meal time fun times soon came to an end. The "jobless loser" (Lauren Pope's words not ours) was dumped once Popey discovered about his cheating ways.
Lauren's life has come full circle recently. Chloren are sort-of back together (though an argument over hair extensions put them back on the rocks), Mario has made a return to Lauren's good books, and, after kissing her feet (as way of apology not punishment), Lew and Loz are friends again.
Jake and Lauren are most certainly not friends. After kissing Lauren, Jake denied any intimacy with Popey at all, which Popey and the rest of the UK found very weird indeed.
