During a break from DJing at Tommy Mallet's Circuit Club on Sunday (8 March), the fashionista was pictured deep in conversation with Jake.
We wonder if he was working his charm?!
She doesn't look so convinced does she?!
Jake is friends with a bunch of the TOWIE cast including James 'Arg' Argent and Lewis Bloor but he only made his debut on our screens on Sunday night's episode.
He's arrived on the ITVBe alongside his glam ex-girlfriend Chloe Lewis, who also made her first appearance on that episode, promising plenty of fireworks and drama.
Jake and Chloe were together for six-and-a-half years before calling it quits… and Jake seems to have moved on to Lauren.
On the last episode, we saw their mutual friend Vas J Morgan introducing them and Lauren admitting she thought Jake was quite cute. Just two minutes into chatting with Lauren, cheeky Jake asked her out!
We don't know yet if the twosome have actually gone on a date yet but judging from these photos Jake may have to work a little harder to impress Popey.
TOWIE airs Wednesdays and Sundays at 10pm on ITVBe.
