Has Lauren thrown shade at Mark Wright hours before he says ‘I do’?


Whether the break-up was mutual or not, watching a former flame head up the aisle is never easy, so we're sure Lauren Goodger is feeling a mixture of emotions as childhood sweetheart Mark Wright prepares to say 'I do' to Coronation Street star, Michelle Keegan this weekend.

So when the 28-year-old reality star chose this particular weekend to post a cryptic message on her Instagram account, it's no surprise social media went into overdrive.

Suggesting she's not 100% over the pair's split, Lauren wrote: "She's the kind of girl a guy meets when he's too young, and he f*cks up because there's too much living to do. But later he realises she's perfect."

Given the timing of the post, legions of TOWIE fans assumed Lauren was throwing shade at Mark and Michelle just hours before their big day, with one writing: "Obviously trying to get some attention on somebody's wedding day! Good luck to the happy couple."

Others were prepared to give Lauren the benefit of the doubt, but questioned her inappropriate timing, saying: "Even if this isn't about Mark, this is just terrible timing on your behalf. Wouldn't get so much negativity if you posted this a month or so down the line…"

However, many other fans of the Essex beauty wasted no time jumping to the reality star's defence, posting: "You's are all so nasty!! Wow!! Jumping to assumptions and being down right mean. Who are you to judge? It's her IG, she's allowed to express herself and put up whatever she wants."

Some of the most tender hearted of TOWIE fans took to social media to praise Lauren for her honesty and slam critics who suggested she should have kept her thoughts to herself, writing: "Lauren is allowed to be hurt or show her sadness! She was with him for many years so no doubt it's gonna hurt her this weekend. You'd all swear you never lost love before! If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all!"

While fans of the show raged back and forth over the meaning of the original post, Lauren, who was apparently planning to text her ex before his big day, appeared to take the whole thing in her stride, tweeting: "Lol laughing at the what'sapps – think the worlds gone mad! There's so much more going on in life than a quote wow."

Choosing to keep schtum as to the meaning behind the post, Lauren took the high road and let the image speak for itself.

Hmmm…what could she have meant?!
