Lol, we apologise for the over-dramatic headline, but we did have a massive LOL when we saw these pictures plop into our inboxes earlier. The shots show Only Way Is Essex ladies Lauren Goodger, Lauren Pope and other cast members sporting cooking aprons and throwing about some food in bowls – as if they’re masters of the kitchen. Hehe.
Of course in reality we can’t remember the last time we saw one of them doing a bit of cooking on the ITV2 show (we imagine it was that time in Series One when Lauren cooked for the whole Mark Wright family in a bid to make them love her) – but it’s nice to see the gang pretending they could be culinary masters – even if we assume they’re actually grinning through gritted teeth while panicking about getting food in their nails.
Obviously, it was all for a very good cause – and we're only kidding when we joke about these ladies being adverse to cooking. Plus they're supporting the Live Below the Line initiative, which is a campaign challenging all of us to understand how people in extreme poverty live. The challenge will take place in May and the organisers are asking that we all try and live for five days on just £5 for our food and drink needs.
A big challenge for sure, but it was certainly nice of the TOWIE gang ot get involved and raise awareness. We bet Ms Pope is actually a secret cake-making genius. We can just tell she is.
And on a completely different note, you’ll know if you’ve already bought the new issue of heat, that the lovely Lauren Goodger has bravely opened up to us about her insecurities about her weight. You can read our full interview with Lauren in this week’s magazine which is out now.
