'Only Way is Essex' beauty Lauren Goodger is the UK's ideal woman thanks to her blue eyes, brown hair and average size, according to a new study
Lauren Goodger is the UK's "ideal woman".
The 'Only Way is Essex' beauty's "girl next door" qualities - including her brunette locks, blue eyes and average build - have come out on top in a poll to reveal the features UK males regard as the most attractive in the opposite sex.
According to the study of 2,000 men - undertaken by social networking site Badoo - British blokes like their women to have brown hair, blue eyes and be a size 12 to 14, making Lauren's co-star and fiance Mark Wright a "lucky man".
Spokesman Lloyd Price said: "I was amazed that blonde hair and size eight did not top the list, magazines are full of skinny blonde models, so it is nice to see that in reality guys prefer the girl next door look.
"Mark Wright is clearly a lucky man in the eyes on the nation."
Lauren - who got engaged to Mark on the last series of 'TOWIE' after dating the hunk on and off for 10 years - recently admitted she is "happy" with her curves, despite not doing regular exercise.
She said: "I don't feel insecure about my figure, I'm happy with the way I look. Exercise is never a regular thing with me, it could be once a week or twice a week, depending on what's going on.
"I'm still a size 10 and if you look from series one I've not changed much. I'm bored of talking about it all the time - at the end of the day people might go on about my weight."
Earlier this month, the 24-year-old beauty completed an "intense" four-day boot camp to tone up her body before the third season of the ITV2 show returns in September.
She wrote on twitter: "Feel like ive been beat up love this feeling bootcamp 4days intense hardest thing ever but makes u feel so good! No more bad pics of me haha! (sic)"
