Fan favourite Lauren finished in third place on last week's grand finale, just behind 5ive star Abz Love and winner Charlotte Crosby from Geordie Shore.
Speaking on ITV's This Morning today, she said: "I stuck it out. There were very strong characters in there. I love it now because I did it. I love the public reaction and I want to say thanks to people who voted for me to stay in. I'm giving away all my jewellery and all my clothes to Twitter, auctioning them all off."
Lauren showed off her wonderful vintage wardrobe during her stay in the CBB house so no doubt plenty of fans - not to mention former housemate Courtney Stodden - will be eager to get their hands on some of it!
During her interview, Lauren said that while she had always felt accepted and had the love of her family, it was good to know the public is now behind her.
"It's wonderful," she said. "I appreciate it. It's lovely to have acceptance from them. I do say to everybody that you have to accept who you are first; that's more important than people's perceptions of you. Once you know yourself first then everything else works out.
"I wanted people to see the real Lauren. That hadn't been shown and I think it finally has been. People will come up to me and talk to me and that's good they know I'm Lauren and they can talk to me."
While we no longer have Lauren on our screens every night, we'll be seeing much more of her in the months to come as she's working on an explosive autobiography and wants a TV show with Courtney.
We'd definitely tune into that!
