Lauren Rose Goodger (born 19 September 1986)[1] is an English television personality, glamour model, media personality and columnist. She starred in the ITVBe reality show The Only Way Is Essex from 2010 until 2012, debuting in the first series before departing in series 6.

In August 2014, Goodger entered the Celebrity Big Brother house in the fourteenth series of the show.


The Only Way Is Essex[edit]

Goodger was one of the original cast members of the reality television programme The Only Way Is Essex. The first two series of the show mostly evolved around Goodger's relationship with her boyfriend Mark Wright. In the series 2 finale, broadcast on 4 May 2011, she dumped Wright and pushed him into a swimming pool.[2]

Celebrity Big Brother[edit]

In August 2014, Goodger participated in the fourteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother. She entered the house on Day 1, and has since been linked with Geordie Shore star Ricci Guarnaccio. On Day 14, Goodger was nominated by Frenchy, and therefore faced eviction. She survived this eviction on Day 17. On Day 21, She was nominated again, this time by Edele and James. On Day 24, Goodger became the seventh housemate to be evicted in a double eviction with Ricci.


Lauren has over 750,000 followers on Instagram which she uses to market products. In 2019 she, along with Mike Hassini and Zara Holland, auditioned to promote a fictitious diet product containing cyanide. The drink was created as part of an investigation by the BBC Three series Blindboy Undestroys the World into Instagram influencers' irresponsible marketing of products they have never used.[4][5][6]

Personal life[edit]

Goodger was raised in Bethnal Green, London with her half-brother Tony and half-sister Nicola.[7]

Goodger's relationship with boyfriend and fellow The Only Way Is Essex cast member Mark Wright lasted for ten years; she was aged 15 when they started dating and they split in 2012. [8][9]

In January 2021, Goodger announced that she was pregnant with her first child.[10]
