Former TOWIE star Lauren has shed four stone in the last year thanks to a combination of healthy eating and regular exercise, and showed off her newly-svelte body on today's ITV's Loose Women.
It was panellist Nadia Sawalha who brought up with Michelle, who is married to Lauren's former fiancé Mark Wright.
"This isn't terribly kind to ask," said Nadia, "But when Michelle Keegan was getting fit, fit, fitter to the point of fitness madness I did think of you. It's like the worst ex nightmare, isn't it? Did that spur you on?"
Lauren's answer? Not at all.
"I completely get it and I can see why people would think that, but where I am in my life and [where] they are in their life, I've got a boyfriend I've had for three years, it was nothing to do with anyone else apart from me," she said.
"There was nothing that could influence me, no one that could come to me and go 'right, do this'. I did it at my time, when I was ready. Otherwise I would have done it ages ago. So, it was just personal for me, nothing influenced me or edged me on. It was just my time to change."
Lauren, 28, said she'd lost weight slowly and steadily thanks to a healthy eating and regular exercise regime.
She added that she doesn't worry about the weight creeping back on. "No, I am in the zone. I enjoy it and I have turned it around and I want other people to feel the same."
