She wrote on her Twitter page: 'Just to clarify that since my @new_magazine column went to print last week, I am no longer with Max Clifford Associates x'

Max Clifford was found guilty of 8 counts of sexual assault last week, and handed an 8 year custodial sentence.

Many of his clients, including X Factor boss Simon Cowell, have distanced themselves from the PR guru since the conviction, but former TOWIE star Lauren seemed to be sticking by Clifford.

However the star confirmed on Twitter on Wednesday that she has indeed parted ways with the spin firm, despite appearing to stand by him in the first days following the news.

In her column for New! magazine, Lauren wrote: 'I am represented by Max Clifford Associates and, obviously, it is a really upsetting and sad time for everyone at the company, given that he was found guilty of eight indecent assaults.'

'There's not much I can say, but I'm very loyal to everyone who looks after me. I just want to send my love to his family at this difficult time.'

'Stop embarrassing yourself. Start having some respect and MOVE ON. @laurengoodger'

But it appears the star has now had a change of heart, formally announcing her separation from the agency on Wednesday.

Ex boyfriend Mark Wright launched an angry attack on Lauren this week, after becoming fed up of her mentioning him in her column.

'Its been well over 2 years and it still continues. I find it so disrespectful to myself but more importantly, my fiancé. Be a proper woman', Mark wrote.

'Please leave me out of your public conversations, stop embarrassing yourself. Start having some respect and MOVE ON. @laurengoodger'.
