The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Goodger has revealed that she still has feelings for her ex, Mark Wright.
The couple began dating when they were at school and were still together when filming began on the reality show.
On screen they were often seen arguing and despite Wright's proposing during series two, the couple eventually split.
However, Goodger insists that she is happy being single.
She told The Sun: "I'm not locked away in a relationship where I've felt a bit insecure. I'm getting the old me back that I lost.
"I feel good again. I'm the person I want to be again. I can't stop smiling."
She added: "When you're in a relationship, you lose your identity. It's always been `Lauren and Mark' and now it's `I'm Lauren'."
Goodger recently claimed she was still in touch with Mark, saying: "Yeah, up and down. It's difficult because we've still got a lot of feelings for each other, but it's just not right."
