Lauren Pope 'lives on a train'
Lauren Pope has admitted it's tough to find love sometimes because she spends a lot of her time commuting between Devon and London
Lauren Pope feels like she "lives on a train."
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star - who quit the show last year following a five-year run - has admitted it's tough to find love when she spends a lot of her time fleeting between Devon, where her business Hair Rehab London is based, and London for other work ventures.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz about her love life, the blonde beauty said: "I am based down in Devon at the moment, that's where our office is and that's where our warehouse is, because my family work with me as well, my dad, my sisters, so because I have been down here a lot and then I come up to London for work it's so tricky arranging things.
"I literally have lived on a train the last few months, I've been up and down on trains but when I can it's nice.
"When I'm in London, especially when I stay in a hotel, it's nice to go for a drink or go for dinner with someone. I am just talking to guys."
However, the entrepreneur briefly dated Kirk Norcross on the hit ITVBe show a few years ago and, although they ended on bitter terms at the time, they've now built a strong friendship and regularly catch up when they have time.
Speaking about her relationship with Kirk - who has three-month-old daughter Violett with his fiancée Holli Willis - she said: "We caught up the other week and he's good, he's a dad now. It's very nice to be in a position with Kirk where we are genuine [friends], like I'd consider him a good friend. It's really odd how it just switches."
Despite her hectic lifestyle, which will see Lauren jet off to Mykonos, Spain and then Ibiza throughout this summer to DJ, Lauren is happy to be kept busy.
She explained: "I am DJ'ing abroad quite a lot this summer as well, so I am in Mykonos next month, then Spain, then Ibiza in July. It's nice to have a mix of all different things then you can never get bored."
