The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Goodger reckons she's the UK's answer to Kim Kardashian!

It follows the news last month she has quit The Only Way Is Essex to join Dancing On Ice in the new year.

According to The Sun, Lauren has agreed to bow out of the ITV2 series after its latest series concluded in the summer.

It will allow Lauren to start training for ITV1 reality show Dancing On Ice, which is set to hit screens in January.

“Lauren knows she is not an integral part of TOWIE any more, so she’s decided to jump ship,” a source told the newspaper this morning. “An opportunity to do Dancing On Ice came along and she’s jumped at the chance.

Speaking to heat magazine last week, friends of Lauren claimed: "Lauren see herself as Britain's answer to Kim Kardashisan now she's quit TOWIE.

"She's already had ideas about doing a show with her sisters and thins it could really set her apart from the TOWIE crowd. She used to have ideas about a show with Mark Wright - but she's accepted that's never going to happen."

And it seems as well as Dancing On Ice and her own reality series, Lauren has been plans for her name.

"Lauren's put her name to her own brand of beauty products and wants to become a businesses woman," the pal added.
