Lauren Goodger is BACK - and ready to tell all: As TOWIE's own 'Burton and Taylor', her fiery romance with Mark Wright made for TV gold. Now, older and wiser, she explains why she hasn't given up on love - despite years of heartbreak following the show

She's moved on from the sparring days with her ex Mark, yet her TOWIE return will no doubt raise questions on the wildly different trajectory their paths have taken.

They were the show's original golden couple, with the first seasons of the structured reality programme charting their turbulent on/off relationship and Mark's controversial flings with Sam Faiers and Lucy Mecklenburgh. Jake was jailed for three-and-a-half years after conning his way into a mother's house two days before Christmas in 2006, overpowering her before a masked gang ran in and raided the family home. The TV star struck up a relationship with another convict, Joey Morrison, but the couple went their separate ways two years later, in 2018, despite Lauren waiting for him while he served time behind bars.
