Lauren Goodger dismisses Jake Livermore romance

Lauren Goodger has dismissed claims that she is romantically involved with Jake Livermore.

The Only Way is Essex star was recently photographed kissing the Tottenham Hotspur footballer while staying in Marbella for an upcoming TV special.

However, she stated that the kiss looked more passionate than it actually was, and that she doesn’t particularly find him attractive.

“It was nothing. I literally said, ‘Hello’, then he leant down and grabbed my hand and I kissed him on the side of the face, but it looks like more,” she told Closer.

“I mean, I wouldn’t be snogging him like that, would I? Me on the floor and him up at the bar! I was talking to a lot of footballers because I know them from home. I’ve made a few new friends too, but there’s nothing in it. I’m just having fun flirting.”

She added: “He’s a nice guy, but I don’t think he’s that good looking – he’s all right!”

Goodger returned to The Only Way is Essex last month after she was dropped in April.

On her return, she said: “Everyone was really lovely when I came back and it made me realise that, at the end of the day, it would have been silly to leave a show that started my career. And it’s still a big show.”
