If you’re an avid watcher of reality television, then Lauren Goodger is a name you will know well. Lauren rose to fame after featuring on the original series of The Only Way Is Essex in 2010 and has since gone on to become a television personality, glamour model and columnist. The star is reportedly worth a whopping £2.1 million, after her appearances on several hit shows. So, here’s a summary of all things Lauren Goodger, and how she made her fortune!
Lauren Goodger was born on 19th September 1986, in Bethnal Green, London. However, when she was four years old, she moved in with her dad and relocated to Essex. She also grew up with her half brother and sister, which explains her ability to deal with drama! The 34-year-old star met her fellow TOWIE co-star and boyfriend, Mark Wright, when she was just 15. The pair infamously dated for 10 years, and their relationship was a key feature on the early episodes of TOWIE. Before her days starring on reality television, Lauren was a secretary.
TOWIE career and romance
Lauren rose to fame as an original cast member on the hit reality show, The Only Way Is Essex. She was a key character on the show for the first 6 series and featured on 63 episodes. Lauren’s relationship with Mark Wright was often portrayed on TOWIE, with the couple even getting engaged in 2011. The pair sadly went on to split only five months later. The breakup was shown in the series 2 finale, where Lauren infamously dumps Mark and then pushes him into a swimming pool. Since their breakup, both Lauren and Mark have regularly spoken negatively about each other in the media. In 2012, the star left the show, amid reports she had been asked to go.
Road to success
Following her success on TOWIE, Lauren starred in several other reality television programmes. In 2013, Lauren featured on the eighth series of Dancing On Ice, where she was partnered up with professional ice skater Michael Zenezini. Unfortunately, Lauren was not a natural skater, and was eliminated in week 2 of the competition. In 2014, the star then went on to participate in the fourteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother. Lauren lasted 24 days, before being evicted from the show. After her successful reality television career, Lauren became a savvy businesswoman and created a brand called Lauren’s Way, which sells a variety of beauty products, including fake lashes, hair extensions and tanning products. Goodger has also found success on adult entertainment site, Only Fans, where she regularly posts raunchy pictures and videos for her subscribers.
Lauren currently has over 775,000 followers on Instagram and regularly shares steamy photos with her followers. The star often features sponsored posts on her page and markets a variety of different products. Goodger has come under fire several times for irresponsibly promoting products that she has never used. In 2019, complaints were made, when Lauren advertised a non-EU authorised weight loss product and artificially edited the size of her waist in the photo. Lauren was asked to remove the post by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA.)
