TOWIE Lauren quits London marathon

The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Goodger has quit training for the London marathon because she "couldn't be bothered", it has been claimed.

The reality TV star made a New Year's resolution to "get fit and complete the marathon for charity", but the 25-year-old reportedly walked out of a week-long bootcamp course in Kent after just one day, according to the Daily Star.

Lauren is quoted as saying: "I just couldn't be bothered."

The Essex girl had been planning on joining her TOWIE co-stars, including James 'Arg' Argent in the marathon next month.

She previously told the Daily Star: "I ran cross-country when I was 13, so I just need to get that fitness back.

"I'm going to start training straight away. It feels refreshing to have a goal."

A spokeswoman for Lauren said: "Unfortunately her trainer has advised against her running the marathon this year and she will concentrate on doing it next year."
