Former TOWIE star Lauren Goodger has told fans she is "so happy" while she undergoes treatment to have her tattoo of ex-boyfriend Jake McLean's name removed.

The reality star first spoke of her plans to get rid of the inking back in May, and revealed she had already started the process of having it removed from wrist. Lauren had Jake's name etched onto her skin last summer, shortly after the pair rekindled their romance.

Yesterday, Lauren took to Twitter to give fans an update on the removal process and seemed pleased with the results so far.

She shared a new selfie with her followers and tweeted: "Thanks @SCSkinClinic For my tattoo removal, couple more sessions and will look as though it was never there so happy."

Lauren added a smiling emoji alongside it.

At the time of having Jake's name tattooed, Lauren admitted it had been an "impulse" decision. That has now become one she appears to regret, and speaking about her plans to rid herself of the tat two months ago, Lauren told OK! magazine: "It probably wasn't the best idea I've ever had! I've already started treatment to get rid of it."

Her decision to do so came after Lauren confirmed she had split with Jake.

Reports first surfaced of their break up in April, with a rep for Lauren later confirming the split. Lauren later confessed that she realised her relationship with Jake was over, as he isn't the man she wants to settle down and have children with.

The 29-year-old explained: "The relationship was quite hard. I felt like I was the one doing everything and putting the effort in. I'm at the age where I'd like to have children but Jake isn't the sort of man I'd want to do it with."

"I want my kids to be surrounded with security and love, and although I think Jake is capable of that, he's just not consistent," she said.

Since becoming single again, Lauren has ruled out a reunion with Jake. She told fans: "I don't see us getting back together, put it that way."
