Lauren Pope has crush on Ricky Gervais

Lauren Pope thinks Ricky Gervais is "quite sexy."

The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star, 33, has admitted she has the hots for the 54-year-old comedian, despite him being over two decades older than her, because she's instantly drawn to men with a silly sense of humour.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "I really don't have a type, as long as they're funny and they've got their sh*t together in life then you're good. I find someone like Ricky Gervais quite sexy. I think older would be good for me. Older guys are more chilled and you don't get the games."

And now the blonde beauty isn't on the reality TV show, she believes she's able to focus more on her love life.

She explained: "I have more time now to be able to meet guys and stuff and it's nice being able to date someone without the stress of cameras and people asking where you're at with your boyfriend. As soon as you go on one date on 'TOWIE' they want to know if you're moving it forward."

Meanwhile, Lauren hasn't ruled out the possibility of her returning to the show but she's adamant she'll never have a relationship in front of the cameras ever again.

She added: "I found it a bit cringey because I don't really want to sit with someone I barely know and have a talk. It's nice now I can go on dates and I don't really have that problem."
