Lauren Pope has a new boyfriend.

The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star hasn't had the best of luck when it comes to love over the years but it looks like things could be finally looking up as she's been enjoying dates with someone away from the public eye after meeting him online.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, the blonde beauty said: "I am dating, yes. But he's not in the public eye. He slid in to my Twitter DMs [direct message inbox]. I look in there every now and again and if someone catches my eye and they are good looking. He messaged me. If they're good looking I have a browse on their page and then I reply. It's very early days, we have only been out 4/5 times. He's from Essex."

Although the 34-year-old beauty doesn't want to divulge too many details on her new man, she believes she's attracting "classier guys" since she quit the ITVBe show.

She said recently when she was still single: "Things fizzled out with the last man I was seeing. But I seem to be attracting classier guys since leaving the show. I keep seeing this hot bloke in the gym - I need to find out his name!"

And, although it's still early days at the moment, Lauren can't wait to become a mother.

She said: "If I have children, I need to be 100 per cent sure it's with the right guy. I won't rush anything. I think I'd be a fun mum. My sisters get mad at me because I hype up my nieces and nephews too much. I'd be awful at telling my kids off."
