Lauren Goodger is not a favourite behind the scenes of Dancing On Ice, it has been reported.
It was claimed earlier in the week that the star of The Only Way Is Essex had been reprimanded because of her poor time keeping, her late night partying and her failure to turn up to some rehearsal sessions and now it’s been said that she’s also acting like a bit of a diva.
Lauren made her first appearance on the ITV series last Sunday and gave a short performance with her partner as part of a group routine. She will return to the rink for her first full length routine on Sunday night.
It may not be totally up to scratch though as it’s been claimed that Lauren is too busy throwing her weight around backstage to really focus on her training and an insider told Star magazine:
“Lauren is already causing problems.”
“She has been told that the kind of diva antics that went on in TOWIE will not be tolerated on this show.”
Sources say that Goodger has received a dressing down from both bosses and her professional partner Michael Zenezini. The explained:
“Lauren has been warned to behave herself.
“All the celebrities are getting on really well and the bosses have told her she has to be a team player.”
“Her partner Michael has also explained that she needs to put the effort in order to perfect the routines.
“She’s promised she won’t make the same mistake again.”
However, Lauren has insisted that the reports aren’t true and claimed she has been putting her all into her DOI training. She tweeted:
“4 the record-the whole article is factually incorrect!I’ve been taking training seriously & working so hard.Cant wait 2show u all on Sunday!”
We’d be a little more inclined to believe her if Jayne Torvill hadn’t complained about her partying before the series even started!
