And that, as she later admitted, is because she is still in love with her ex-boyfriend.

Speaking to housemate Edele Lynch, the 27-year-old Essex girl said: "I feel like I've been trying to cover this up - I still love him."

"I'm not over my ex. I try to convince myself that I am over him but I'm not."

Lauren previously dated her TOWIE co-star Mark Wright for ten years; the two were briefly engaged, but they split in 2012.

Mark is now engaged to former Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan, with the pair seeming very much in love.

And Mark's cousin, TOWIE star Elliott Wright, has since claimed that Lauren is "playing a game".

He said: "I think she’s playing a game because it happened the day she was put up for eviction. Her behaviour was embarrassing and I reckon Mark would have been cringing."

And, speaking about the comments Lauren made about Mark preferring her to top models, Elliot admitted it was a "cheap shot" at Michelle.

He said: "That comment was a cheap shot at Michelle. She was basically saying: 'He doesn’t like skinny birds.'

"Lauren’s just a bit jealous of Michelle and that’s why she keeps having digs. Michelle won’t retaliate, she doesn’t need to, she’s too classy for retaliation and she’s a beautiful girl."

Despite many people saying that the Essex girl appeared to be sobbing over her more recent ex Jake McLean, a close friend of Lauren's told our magazine this week that her drunken antics are due to her missing Mark.

They said: “She's had a lot of knocks and she's extremely self-conscious about her appearance - she's vulnerable at the moment and it's clear she's turning to booze to cope."
