While Lauren Goodger admits she has plenty of "respect" for 'The Only Way is Essex' after it helped her to forge a TV career, she feels "a lot happier" out of the ITV2 show
Lauren Goodger feels "a lot happier" out of 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The brunette beauty - who was booted off 'Dancing on Ice' last weekend - insists she is enjoying being free from the ITV2 reality show, but she has plenty of "respect" for the programme because it helped her forge a career on TV.
She said: "I do feel a lot happier I'm out of the show. However much I respect it - because it's got me where I am today - I can now relive my life and do positive things."
Lauren admits she found her time on 'Dancing on Ice' was "more fun" than appearing on 'TOWIE' because she did not have to pretend to be someone she isn't.
When asked if she misses 'TOWIE', she explained: "I can't say I do, because my time's been taken up by 'DOI', so I don't really think about it. And this is more fun.
"It's completely different; I'm not pretending to be someone I'm not. I'm showing my real personality."
Lauren was previously in a 10-year on/off relationship with her former 'TOWIE' co-star Mark Wright, but she no longer talks to the 25-year-old hunk.
She added to new! magazine: "I don't speak to Mark any more. Not at all."
