LAUREN Goodger has insisted that she’s Kate Middleton’s “favourite reality star”.
During her latest chat with The Sun, the 33-year-old defended her topless selfies and compared herself to Kim Kardashian – and also revealed that the Duchess of Cambridge is her number one fan.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, she said: “Kim posts a topless selfie and she’s a feminist.
“I post a bikini picture and get called an attention seeker. It’s double standards. There is no need for it.
“And calling me a bad role model? I just laugh. I’m Kate Middleton’s favourite Towie star, so I must be doing something right.”
Back when Lauren was a regular show in 2012, it was reported that the Duchess of Cambridge loved to binge watch the popular ITVBe programme.
It was also said that Kate loved keeping up to date with Lauren’s turbulent relationship with ex Mark Wright.
At the time Kate thought that the hunk – who is now married to Coronation Street’s Michelle Keegan – was “not nice enough” to her during their 11 years together.
During her visit to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool back in February 2012, the royal family member started talking about what telly programmes she enjoyed watching.
A source told the Daily Star that: “After a while Kate started talking about TV and told us she watches The Only Way Is Essex.
“She has us all laughing, saying she never misses an episode and that Lauren Goodger is her favourite.”
They added: “Kate said she really hopes that Lauren doesn’t get back with Mark because ‘he is not nice enough to her.”
But when Kate isn’t keeping up with the latest drama in Brentwood, she likes to sit back, relax and indulge in some other TV classics.
The married couple are “big fans of Homeland” and Game of Thrones.
During a chat on BBC Radio 1 back in 2017, the presenter revealed that they hadn’t watched the popular Sky Atlantic series yet, and left the Duke of Cambridge in shck.
He replied: “You should definitely watch Game of Thrones, that’s worth watching.”
According to William Moseley, who plays Prince Liam in E!’s The Royals, William and Kate are also fans of American drama television series One Tree Hill.
During a chat with the Metro, the actor said: “Fortunately William and Kate were fans of our creator’s first show, One Tree Hill.”
On a Saturday night, Prince William revealed that Kate and mother-in-law Carole Middleton love nothing more than to watch BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing.
Speaking to Strictly judge Shirley Ballas and host Claudia Winkleman at a charity gala, he told them: “I have watched the show [Strictly] a couple of times. Catherine is a huge fan and my mother-in-law loves it.”
And if William has control of the TV remote, his first pick is BBC3’s Killing Eve.
Producer of the show Sally Woodward Gentle met William during a tour of BAFTA’s new venue at the time and he admitted to being a fan of the comedy-drama spy thriller television series.
She said: “Apparently he has watched it all. We didn’t test him, but he did say it was quite a final ending to series two.
“So at least he watched the last three minutes of the last episode! He said he loved it. He talked about the dark humour of it, and Jodie and Sandra, how amazing they both are.
“And he talked about the humour you can get through the costumes, which is what Phoebe [de Gaye] is so clever at.”
