Towie star Lauren Pope is the latest reality show beauty to land herself a rapper - she's dating Wretch 32.

The model and DJ has followed in the footsteps of Made In Chelsea rival Millie MacKintosh, who is dating Professor Green, by bagging a grime star.

Lauren and Wretch - real name Jermaine Scott - have been dating for several weeks and showed off their romance at Joey Essex's birthday bash at Funky Buddha in London earlier this week.

A source tells The Sun: "Wretch is a big ladies' man and gets on really well with Lauren. They have a real laugh together and enjoy each other's company.

"It's very early days - they're some way from being an item - but for the time being they are enjoying the flirting."

It is the latest high-profile fling for Lauren - she previously enjoyed a brief romance with none other than Prince Harry before finding fame on the show, and dated co-stars Kirk Norcross and newcomer Tom Pearce.

The blonde seems to have a thing for famous fellas - last year the 28 year old had her eye on One Direction hunk Liam Payne after Caroline Flack managed to pull 18-year-old Harry Styles.

She told the Daily Star: "There is a really good looking one in One Direction - Liam! I would love to go out on a date with him.

"Maybe me and Caroline could have a little double date together. Her with Harry, me with Liam. There could be a One Direction cameo in TOWIE.
