Katie Price hopes her pal Lauren Pope has found love with new beau Lewis Bloor and doesn't think their relationship is a "showmance"
Katie Price hopes Lauren Pope has "found love".
'The Only Way is Essex' star recently began dating co-star Lewis Bloor and the 36-year-old glamour model is eager for her pal to find happiness following her break-up with former 'TOWIE' star Kirk Norcross.
She wrote in her Now magazine column: "I so hope Lauren Pope has found love with 'TOWIE' co-star Lewis Bloor. It's been years since I've seen her happy to go public with a guy - not since her ex Kirk Norcross.
"I'm sure this is a romance and not a showmance just for 'TOWIE'. She deserves to be happy."
Lauren and Lewis recently went public on the ITV2 show after striking up a romance in Marbella, Spain, last month.
A source said: "Lewis has always fancied Lauren, but thought she wasn't interested. In Marbs, he made out he was keen on [new girls] Robyn Althasen and Imogen Leaver, but then he and Lauren started getting close - he made a real effort to get her attention. And it worked.
"They were out one night, started flirting and ended up having a kiss. They're really keen on each other."
