TOWIE's Lauren Goodger has said she's finally ready to move on from ex Mark Wright.
The brunette beauty split from Mark after a 10-year-old on and off again relationship last year.
And after living the final years of her romance out on telly to millions, Lauren has had a hard time moving on.
The 22-year-old told Closer magazine that her kiss with new boyfriend and fellow TOWIE star Tom P was her first since Mark.
“I’ve kissed someone else for the first time since Mark!" she claimed. "I’ve been quite nervous, but I’m enjoying it. We’re not a couple yet but who knows?
"Tom is a really nice guy. I’m getting to know him and it’s early days, but we fancy each other.”
She added: “At the end of the day, I’m an adult and I’m finally ready to take the next step and sleep with someone new. I need to move on and there’s nothing wrong with that.”
In an interview with Closer magazine, Lauren also insisted that she had yet to sleep with Tom.
She revealed: “We went on a date, then he dropped me home. We’ve been out clubbing. Nothing’s happened!
“Yeah, he stayed over till the early hours once, but my friends were there too. We kissed, but there’s been nothing as in sex – not yet!”
The Only Way Is Essex continues tomorrow night on ITV2.
