Mark Wright found it 'impossible' to get over Lauren
The Only Way Is Essex's Mark Wright found it ''impossible'' to move on from his now-fiancee Lauren Goodger when the pair briefly split last year.
Mark Wright found it "impossible" to move on from 'The Only Way Is Essex' co-star Lauren Goodger.
The 24-year-old hunk - who dated the beauty on and off for 10 years before finally popping the question earlier this year - insisted despite his playboy demeanour, he isn't a bad guy and was just trying to get over Lauren by dating fellow 'TOWIE' star Lucy Mecklenburgh during series one of the ITV2 reality show.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'm not the person I look like on the show. All of the drama is real but sometimes some of the situations are forced. I tried to move on from Lauren with Lucy but I couldn't. I just love this girl too much."
However, Lauren admitted seeing Mark with brunette bombshell Lucy was one of the "hardest" things she has ever had to go through.
She said: "The hardest thing for me was walking into a bar and some girl I didn't even know was all over Mark. I literally had no idea who Lucy was at that stage."
Although the pair have since rekindled their relationship, they still have their ups and downs, with Lauren seen pushing Mark into a swimming pool at the end of the 'TOWIE' series finale on Wednesday.
She said: "I got the best reaction of the whole two series after the pool incident. I think girls just like to see other girls sticking up for themselves."
