Lauren Goodger has said she wishes former fiancé Mark Wright well on his engagement to Michelle Keegan.

Ex-TOWIE star Mark confirmed earlier this week that he'd proposed to Coronation Street actress Michelle following a nine-month relationship.

Of course, plenty of people wanted to know what Lauren thought of the engagement, considering she was in a relationship with Mark on and off for a decade (and engaged to him), and that relationship has been well documented.

Lauren told Reveal: "I wish them all the best and I'm very happy for him. That's it, there's nothing else for me to say, really."

It's all in the past for Lauren, anyway, who is happily loved up with boyfriend Jake McLean.

We chatted to Lauren at an exclusive London Hair Fashion Week event held at Tatiana Hair Extensions in London on Wednesday evening (11 September).

The former TOWIE star made a glamorous entrance in sleek black leather trousers and a-mazing red Louboutins. We were also having a bit of handbag envy thanks to her gorgeous Louis Vuitton purse! Of course, her flawless tan was courtesy of her own Lauren's Way tanning range. She told us her Lauren's Way Angels did her hair and make-up (using LW fake eyelashes) ahead of her arrival.

Lauren looked beautiful at the Tatiana Hair Extensions event on 11 September 2013.

The avant garde catwalk event, which was attended by stars including Jasmin Walia and Lindsay Armaou and hosted by Bobby Cole-Norris, saw some seriously impressive hairstyles making their way down the runway.

"Tatiana is a good friend of mine. She does my extensions," said Lauren. "I'm having a good night. I'm happy just to sit back and watch the models on the catwalk - I don't think I could go up there!"

How amazing are her red Louboutins?!

Lauren was solo for the night as she told us Jake was at home babysitting her adorable dog MiMi, adding that he doesn't really want to be in the public eye anyway.

"Jake's a good guy," she said. "I'm here, it's my thing, I come with my agents and Lauren's Way girls. Maybe if it was something like a premiere he'd come with me but he's not trying to be famous. He said to me, 'This is your job, I'm normal.' We're in a relationship so I respect that."

After starting the year with a bang on Dancing On Ice, then releasing her juicy autobiography Secrets Of An Essex Girl, Lauren decided to step away from the limelight for a while, too.

"I just wanted a break so I took a few months out, didn't go to any events or premieres. I just enjoyed my relationship, wanted to be at home, for things to be real. But now I'm back again and working and have new projects in the pipeline."

Aside from her successful Lauren's Way range of fake tans, hair products and eyelashes, she told us she's had plenty of meetings recently about other exciting potential projects - the problem will be deciding which to focus on when so many things are being proposed!

With her hectic schedule we wondered if she'd had a chance to meet good friend Katie Price's newborn son Jett yet?

"Not yet!" she said. "Bless. But Katie's doing fine, she's really well."

And what does she think of the news that the TOWIE gang will head to Las Vegas later this month to film two special one-hour shows?

"It's amazing! I'm so jealous! I've been to Vegas. It's wicked. There will be loads going on, I'm sure. Maybe I'll go out there to say hello!"

We're pretty sure she was joking but there's no harm in keeping our fingers crossed for a Lauren/TOWIE cameo!
