Her romance with ex-fiancé Mark Wright is still arguably TOWIE's most famous relationship storyline, but Lauren Goodger has vowed there will be NO MORE on-screen dating for her.

We can't wait for Lauren's return!

Lauren, 29, is returning to the show that made her famous later this year for its 18th series, but she's insisted she won't be dating any of her co-stars or striking up another romance on TV.

She told the new issue of Reveal mag: "I don't want a TOWIE relationship!"

So that's bad news for co-star Mike Hassini, 21, who previously told us: "Lauren Goodger is looking good at the minute. She's looking healthy and she's single, so I might charm her."

"I think that's very cute," laughed Lauren when we bumped into her at PupAid last week.

"But no thanks!"

"I'm not attracted to anyone on the show," she added. "I can just have fun and enjoy it. It's a bit of banter."

Sorry, Mike.

Lauren confirmed last month that she's returning to TOWIE next series. She was one of the show's original castmembers before quitting in series six. Her biggest storyline was the on-off romance with Mark, which lasted until series three when he quit the show. They split in 2012 after a relationship lasting more than a decade.

Lauren said on Loose Women: "I was meant to be in this series but couldn't because of personal reasons. I am doing the next series, yes. 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."
