Lauren Goodger 'Quits TOWIE For Dancing On Ice'
Scripted reality star to get her skates on in bid for showbiz career...
Mark Wrightinto a showbiz career - starting with a stint on the ITV1 skating show.
A source said: "Lauren knows she is not an integral part of TOWIE any more, so she's decided to jump ship.
"An opportunity to do Dancing On Ice came along and she's jumped at the chance. But ITV are really strict about TOWIE people doing other shows where they are treated as celebs, so she can't do both.
"She hopes the public will see a different side to her on Dancing On Ice and that she will be able to launch a career off the back of it.
"She's watched Mark pick up telly work after he quit and did I'm A Celebrity. She's keen to do the same."
Lauren is claimed to have "mutually agreed" to leave the show - and tonight's episode will be her last appearance, it is claimed.
The cast of TOWIE were reportedly sent warning letters after recent unrest in the workplace.
