TOWIE's Lauren Pope finding it "tough" after splitting from Kirk Norcross

Kirk Norcross

The Only Way Is Essex star, Lauren Pope, has revealed how she's finding her split from Kirk Norcross "tough". We reported how the pair surprisingly split up earlier this week, announcing the news through their management on Tuesday - just as they revealed their matching nose jobs in magazines.

Lauren told how she pleased that her and Kirk - who had been dating fo eight months - had handled their separation in private and out of the way of the ITV2 reality show.

“I’m coping OK. You have to get on with it really. It’s tough, if you didn’t get upset over a break-up you would be a bit," Lauren told BANG! showbiz.

“I’m not thinking about new man right now, I’m just concentrating on this. To do it a second time round on TV would’ve been so hard so I’m glad we’re not filming at the moment.

“It only happened a couple of days ago so I still don’t know what’s going on, I’m still getting my head around it.”

Meanwhile Laurent confirmed she would be back for the new series of the show, which kicks off in September. She said: “I can’t wait for the third series. It’s always so busy when it starts though so I’m making the most of my free time at the moment.

“But I’m not thinking about men at all yet, that’s not in my mind right now," Laurent added.
