"Lauren Goodger is looking good at the minute. She's looking healthy and she's single, so I might charm her," he tells us, flashing that oh-so-cheeky grin.
Original TOWIE star Lauren, 29, is set to rejoin the show next series, but Mike says she may still prove a challenge.
"It [pulling girls] is a lot harder than before with the likes of Lauren, Lucy Mecklenburgh and Sam Faiers. None of those girls were friends. Mark Wright could go from one girl to the other – he was the man!"
Lauren left TOWIE during series six but confirmed on Loose Women this month she'll be back next series, after pulling out of plans to rejoin during the current series.
"I was meant to be in this series but couldn't because of personal reasons. I am doing the next series, yes," she said. "We will see how it goes. I've had a chat with the execs and they are so lovely, so nice. They said they missed me and would love me to come back.
"I said I would love to come in as Lauren so people can see who Lauren is. Nobody knows who I am. I've always been in drama or in a relationship on TV and now it's about me. I have no drama. I can go in and be one of the girls."
TOWIE airs Wednesday at 10pm on ITVBe.
