With Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger's relationship on the rocks, it was all set for Kirk Norcross and Lauren Pope to become The Only Way Is Essex's hottest couple, but today the pair announced they had split! The news comes as the pair unveil the the results of their matching nose jobs!
The couple confirmed this morning that their eight month relationship was definitely over, but insisted that the split was amicable between them.
The pair's representatives, Black Sheep Management, announced on their twitter page this morning: “Blacksheep Management today sadly announce that the relationship between Lauren Pope and Kirk Norcross has broken down."
They added: “Unfortunately, Kirk no longer felt committed towards Lauren and decided the right decision for both parties was to separate.
“No other party is involved in this decision, and they hope to remain friends moving forward.”
The pair's relationship was never that stable, with Kirk publicly dumping Lauren during the second series of the show earlier this year.
Lauren said at the time: “I was shocked and humiliated. I understand we sign over the right to have our lives filmed, but I think he could have said it had to be done with just him and me at home.”
However recently the duo seemed to be getting along better - with rumours of marriage on the horizon!
Perhaps Kirk got cold feet....
