Speaking to Reveal in October, Lauren said that she was not quite ready to get married to Jake - unlike her ex Mark Wright and his fiancèe Michelle Keegan, who got engaged in September.

She said: "[Jake and I] spend so much time together, but in a year you don't know each other, so I think I'll wait for that.

"I'm young. Who knows what the future holds?"

Meanwhile, Lauren has also posted another inspirational message to her Instagram page.

It reads: "Do not chase people. Be you and do your own thing an work hard. The right people who belong in your life will come to you, and stay."
