'The Only Way is Essex' beauty Lauren Goodger claims ex-fiance Mark Wright he would be ''nothing'' without her as they helped make each other who they are
'The Only Way is Essex' star Lauren Goodger thinks ex-fiance Mark Wright would be "nothing" without her.
The 24-year-old beauty - who was engaged to the nightclub promoter before they split last month after a 10-year on/off relationship - revealed he tried to get her to protect his image by not talking about their break-up.
She said: "I said to him, 'You'd be nothing without me. We're on the same show so what are you talking about?' "
Lauren admits the pair broke up weeks ago and had already split when they filmed the trailer for the forthcoming third series of 'TOWIE' last month, although she was still wearing her engagement ring for the shoot as they pair were deciding whether to get back together.
She blames Mark being jealous of other men finding her attractive for the end of their engagement, as well as the "pressure" of the ITV2 reality programme and their upcoming nuptials.
She added to Now magazine: "A lot of things went on between me and Mark. But basically it was the pressure of the show on our relationship and the wedding.
"There was a scene in the show where I was trying on a purple Julien Macdonald dress in Debenhams. It was a short dress, clingy, really lovely and sexy.
"I bought it but Mark never let me wear it. He was jealous of how I would sometimes look when I went out. Men can get really jealous. It wasn't always easy.
"So yeah, I dumped him - well actually it was mutual. I just had to move out of our flat."
But Lauren - who is no longer wearing her engagement ring - has not ruled out rekindling her former romance with Mark.
She said: "You never know, we might get back together. I still had my ring on until his manager put out a statement, so now I don't wear it."
