TOWIE preview for second episode: Lauren Pope, Gemma Collins, Vas J Morgan and Bobby Norris


TOWIE episode to air Wednesday, 17 June: Gemma is unhappy with Vas


Vas had earlier said: "I think I'd rather sleep on the beach than sleep in a villa with Gemma Collins and Bobby Norris. Their loud energy, the noise, their bickering. It would be too much for me."

Gemma was unhappy and stormed off, but Bobby remained to chat.

Now, in an interview with the TOWIE official website, Lauren has said: "Sometimes I think people thrive off the drama. It really didn't need to be made into that big a deal. Not everyone will like you and if you can't accept that in life, you will live a pretty depressing life! You can't be everyone's cup of tea.

"I don't feel caught in the middle whatsover as I'll always 100 per cent have Vas' back but I have had fun in the villa, especially with Jess, Ferne and Bobby. I felt bad for Bobby there because he's a genuinely good guy and wants to be cool with everyone but Gemma just then made that into something so unnecessary."

Vas added: "I didn't want to stay at the villa with Gemma and Bobby because I find Gemma's personality a bit overbearing and drama follows her. I wanted to avoid that but unfortunately it didn't work. I'm easy breezy with Bobby, I have no issue with him.

"With Gemma, if I don't see her again I don't care. If I see her tomorrow, I don't care. I'm very indifferent."

TOWIE continues Sunday at 10pm on ITVBe.
