Now, while answering a Q&A from some of her 1.1M Instagram followers, Lauren was asked if she misses being on the reality TV series. 

The question from a fan read, “Do you miss being on TV? Love watching how you’re smashing motherhood”.

Pope replied by posting a snap from her younger years and admitted, “I actually really don’t lol. It had its fun moments at the time but also some stressful ones”.

“I really do like my quiet life now but I can look back and remember some very funny memories of that time so no regrets. I try not to live with regrets but would I chose to do it again, it’s a no from me!

“On the positive side it did provide us all with so many exciting opportunities that I’ll forever be thankful for and allowed me to make friendships with people I wouldn’t of met otherwise and it’s a story I can tell my kids when they are older I guess!”.

Lauren closed off by adding, “And thank you for the compliment”.

When sharing her and Tony’s break-up online, Pope explained, “Alot has been going on in the background as I have been adjusting to life as a single mum of two”.

“I’m on this journey with as much positivity as humanly possible especially with everything going on in the world right now”.
