Yes you guessed it, we’re talking about the Only Way is Essex. And last night there was an Essex celebration in order as Mark Wright finally popped the question to Lauren Goodger.
The 24-year-old nightclub promoter – who was seen romancing Lucy Mecklenburgh and Sam Faiers during the first series of the reality TV show – has finally decided to commit to Lauren after nine years of on-off dating.
Despite stringing the fashion assistant along as he hooked up with both Sam and Lucy, Mark gets down on one knee with a huge sparkler at rival Kirk Norcross’ nightclub Sugar Hut on tonight’s explosive episode to prove his commitment to long-suffering Lauren.
However, whether the cheeky chappie can resist the temptation of his gorgeous co-stars remains to be seen.
An insider recently revealed: “Lauren and Mark are engaged for now – but as fans saw last year, life in Essex is always dramatic. We’ll have to wait and see whether Mark really commits to Lauren this time around.”
Meanwhile, ‘I’m A Celebrity . Get Me Out Of Here!’ beauty Kayla Collins – who enjoyed a brief romance with Mark before returning to the US to care for her sick cat – thinks the hunky star is making a huge “mistake” by getting back together with Lauren.
She told new! magazine: “He’s making a mistake. I texted him to tell him. If he keeps wasting time with Lauren, he’ll be unhappy. I don’t think marriage could revive them. I think that if they didn’t have a show following their lives, they wouldn’t be doing something so irrational.
“I was praising Mark last week, saying there’s a possibility we could get back together, so I’m shocked he ran back to Lauren.”
