The cast of The Only Way Is Essex celebrated the success of the ITVBe reality show in new documentary, The Power of TOWIE.

Broadcast on Sunday (13 March) and hosted by Mark Wright, the likes of Joey Essex, Gemma Collins, Amy Childs, Jessica Wright and Pete Wicks talked about different aspects of the show and how it has grown to be one of the most popular reality shows today.

However, some fans took to Twitter asking why Lauren Goodger hadn't been featured.

After being inundated with tweets, Lauren tweeted: "Getting a lot of tweets about @OnlyWayIsEssex 200th episode and asking where I am? I haven't watched it yet but can only guess...Hope u enjoy."

The cryptic nature of Lauren's tweet left some fans to suggest that her no-show was down to her ex-Mark and his family.

However, reps for both Lauren and TOWIE have said that this is simply not the case.

Lauren's manager told The Sun: "Lauren appeared just before Christmas and loved it, her not being in last night's special was nothing to do with Mark. Her schedule is jam-packed, and she was away on holiday when the show filmed."

A TOWIE rep said: "Lauren was overseas when the documentary was filmed."
