Lauren Pope has accused the 'Only Way is Essex' bosses of causing her too much stress
Lauren Pope felt like she was on "edge" while she was filming 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The 34-year-old reality TV star quit the ITVBe show in 2015 in order to focus on her business venture Hair Rehab London and has admitted she probably won't return to the programme in the future because the pressure of having good storylines put too much stress on her.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Lauren said: "I do not miss the constant feeling of anxiety and stress when you have got a big storyline. It's a catch-22 as you have got air time, which means more exposure which is great for your business.
"But it also means you are going into filming feeling you are on edge all the time. You think ' oh my God what is happening next?' To the producers it's a storyline but it is your life."
The blonde beauty has admitted she'll never forget the moment she was dumped by her now-ex-boyfriend Kirk Norcross live on television because the humiliation has mentally scarred her.
She explained: "It's hard to find a man and I won't just settle down with anyone.
"I have found it tough romantically and I will never forget when I got dumped live on TOWIE by Kirk.
"I would say that was quite up there with one of the most embarrassing moments of being on the show. I cried about a million times on TV and I was the ugliest crier."
Although she's not really focusing on her love life at the moment, Lauren recently split from Aaron Chalmers and is thrilled that they're still able to stay in contact and remain friends.
She said: "I am still in contact with Aaron and it's a shame that it didn't work out but the main thing is that we are still friends."
