TOWIE's Jess Wright has admitted Lauren Pope's interest in Dan Edgar does make her question their friendship.

In the last episode, we saw sparks flying between Lauren and Dan during a group trampolining activity before Dan asked Lauren out on a one-on-one date, which she accepted.

Jess gave her blessing to the pairing and even suggested the date but, in a new interview with the TOWIE official website, she confessed it had made her question Lauren's feelings on their friendship.

Fans of the show know Jess and Dan enjoyed a few dates last series.

Jess said: "When it comes to Lauren and Dan, she's obviously a bit embarrassed considering how soon me and Dan were dating or whatever, which is fine. I think maybe that's why she is playing it down, because I do think they are obviously flirting and they planned to go out and stuff in Marbella, I heard.

"I just think maybe she feels a bit awkward, which is understandable because it was quite soon after. I'd rather her just be honest and say, 'Look I quite like Dan, do you mind if I go on a date with him?'

"I'm really not fussed about her and Dan. Obviously my and Dan's ship sailed ages ago. It's really not a problem. I couldn't care less, it's fine cause she's my friend. Now I feel it's awkward and it's a shame."

Jess added: "Naturally I question how much she cares about the friendship a little bit, I suppose, because it's something you just wouldn't do…"
