Former TOWIE star Lauren Goodger is currently enjoying a romantic break in Paris, after being whisked away by boyfriend Jake McLean for her birthday.

On Saturday (19 September), Lauren found herself being spoilt by her beau as she turned a year older. Not only did she open a slew of designer goodies that Jake had bought her, but the reality star then headed to Paris to celebrate her 29th birthday.

The lucky thing!

Taking to Instagram, Lauren couldn't resist showing off her birthday gifts with fans. She can be seen posing with balloons alongside a slew of Selfridges bags that contained a Balmain tee, a YSL purse, a dog-printed tote bag, a gold chain and many more gifts.

Lauren was even treated to 100 roses too and was quick to tell fans she loved everything Jake had bought for her. Especially that getaway to Paris.

She and Jake spent their first day shopping in the French capital, before enjoying a romantic dinner for two and plenty of champers in the evening. Sharing an update with her followers, Lauren gushed it was "so good to be away" with Jake.

Yesterday, the couple opted to fit in some sightseeing, heading to Notre Dame and then the River Seine - where they then added padlocks with their initials on to Pont des Arts bridge.

Sharing some snaps from her tourist day out, Lauren wrote alongside her photos: "Had lovely tour day in Paris today - went to the bridge to put 1pink and 1gold love padlock with our initials on #LG[heart]JM #BirthdayWeekend #Paris #19thSept2015 #memories #loversbridge."

Lauren's birthday trip away comes after she recently gushed her relationship with Jake is "better than ever".

The pair had split in 2013 after dating for two years, but decided to give their romance another go over the summer. Looking back on their romance, Lauren has now said she thinks the pair's break up has actually benefitted them both in the long run.

"Sometimes you do feel like you need a little break to realise you want to be with each other," she said. "It can be healthy. You come back and do it properly, and that's what we've done."

"We've definitely grown up and matured," she added. "We're in a totally different place."

So much so, that the couple have even been at the centre of wedding rumours. Reports even suggested Lauren has already bought a wedding dress for their big day, but she has since dismissed such claims as total rubbish.

She tweeted: "Wonder what this wedding dress I've apparently chosen looks like then?! And hen do in Marbs?! Does make me laugh #SourceRubbish."
