Lauren Pope is returning to The Only Way Is Essex for an explosive series finale.

Lauren first appeared in TOWIE's first ever series back in 2010 and left the show two years ago now in 2015.

She'll return for TOWIE's series 20 final episode on Wednesday 3rd May on ITVBe at 10pm.

"I’m very excited about to be back," said Lauren, who admitted she's seen a lot of her former co-stars.

"I’ve been away from Essex for the past year and focusing on business, but now going back into it I’m sure I’ll naturally speak to them more and more," she explained. "You can’t deny that Dan Edgar is still stunningly beautiful.

"We had a little fling, if you can call it that, but it fizzled out when I moved away from Essex. We left it on really good terms. He’s nice and chilled out."

Lauren suggested her return would bring drama, saying: "I feel like it follows me whether I want it or not.

"The people that I had the drama with last time round aren’t there now so hopefully I’ll find it more enjoyable which is why I’m more excited to go back. It’s a fresh, clean slate and that old drama won’t be dragged up again."

She added: "I’ve missed the banter with people like Diags and Chloe. I’m going back in friendly with Chloe, which I haven’t had for a long time, which is why I’m not dreading it.

"Not being friends with her really affected me in terms of my happy memories. All of my happy memories on TOWIE were moments shared with her."

As for her clashes with Gemma Collins, Lauren said: "It’s been two years so hopefully she’s no longer holding a grudge. We’ll either laugh when we see each other, or it will be awkward. Who knows? It will be interesting to see her reaction."

The Only Way Is Essex airs Sunday and Wednesday nights on ITVBe at 10PM.
