The source continues: “What people didn’t see was that Lauren and Mick actually spent a lot of time chatting and getting to know each other at the dinner parties.”
“And they really hit it off, probably better than any of the other couples on the show. They had such great banter, were both from the country and could really just make each other laugh. There’s no doubt Mick had more in common with Lauren than Jess and really, they should have been matched together from the start.”
According to New Idea, the pair have been keeping their new romance a secret and plan to come clean once Mick and Jessika leave the experiment in a few weeks’ time. “Obviously they don’t want to let the cat out of the bag too early because Mick is still on the show and producers would absolutely flip out.”
But Lauren has definitely told those closest to her about him and she is smitten.”
And the pair have been flirting up a storm online.
“Such a LAD,” Lauren recently commented on a photo Mick shared. “Get on it,” she wrote on another where Mick is seen relaxing on his farm.”
