TOWIE's Lauren Pope already has her own dating website so what does she think of co-star Mario Falcone launching a matchmaking service of his own?

The Essex DJ originally came up with the concept of an online dating agency called 'Hope With Pope', as well as a successful hair extensions brand known as Hair Rehab London.

However, now Italian stallion Mario has also launched a site for singles to meet and Lauren is a little miffed.

Speaking about 'Mating With Mario' while getting her nails done at the Electric Hairdressing salon in London ahead of Virgin Media's V Festival, Lauren told Reveal: "Yeah I know, he's copied me! I like to do things that are different to everyone else on the show. I didn't want to bring out a tan. So I had my hair extension business long before the show and now other people have hair brands, which is a bit annoying.

"It's frustrating when you think of an idea and then someone copies it."

She then joked: "But in terms of online dating websites, I don't think anyone would go to Mario for that!"

Nevertheless, the TOWIE star does understand why Mario would be keen to launch a dating site - especially now that he is single and quite clearly ready to mingle.

Mario has now launched his own dating site

Discussing whether she thinks Mario would find a date for himself on his site, Lauren said: "Dya know what, Mario is a young and single guy and he's not hurting anyone now, so if I was him I'd probably do exactly the same. Good luck to him!"

We guess we'll have to watch this space to see whether the ladies' man gets lucky on 'Mating With Mario'.
