Lauren Goodger is in talks to do this year's 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' as she's hoping it will boost her TV career
Lauren Goodger has been approached for 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star has watched her ex-fiance Mark Wright's career catapult over the past few months after he landed a presenting gig on the US TV show 'Extra', and she's so desperate to follow in his footsteps that she's toying with the idea of signing up to the creepy-crawly series after he was runner-up in 2011.
A source told Closer magazine: "She's hell-bent on going one better than Mark and becoming more famous than him, she says she won't give up until she is. Lauren is considering 'Celebs Go Dating' but she's also been asked to go on 'I'm A Celeb...'
"She's been hinting that she's thinking about it and is desperate to return to TV. She'd love a celebrity romance in the jungle so she can relaunch herself."
The 31-year-old beauty hasn't had the best of luck when it comes to her love life over the years as she was left heartbroken when Mark, 30, dumped her and then married Michelle Keegan in 2015 and then, most recently, she split from her jailbird boyfriend Joey Morrison after his prison sentence was extended until next year.
But the brunette star may be about to meet her prince charming as producers of 'Celebs Go Dating' approached her earlier this month about taking part next year.
An insider said recently: "Lauren's been for meetings at the production company that makes the show - they're really keen to sign her up. She makes great TV, she's really popular, and she's been unlucky in love so far.
"Everyone would love to see Lauren get set up with someone special - she's had such bad luck with men in the past, the dating agency could really help her out."
Lauren dumped Joey - who she was in a relationship with for 18 months - after his sentence was extended following an "incident" behind bars but, although she's devastated by their split, she feels like she's finally back to her old self now they're over.
