Yes, we did hear that sigh of relief


We're not going to lie to you Scapers, we let out a little gasp of shock when we first clapped eyes on the photos of TOWIE star Lauren Pope and Tom Daley leaving London club Marylebone 1 hand in hand this week. 

Not only because she's 29 to his 18 (yes we know cougars are all the rage right now, but still) but also because they just make such an unlikely pairing.

Luckily, Lauren took to twitter to clear up the romance rumours before our heads exploded. Which was nice.

"Omg what a funny night and just for the record I can assure you that Tom Daley and I are just mates and nothing more xx" she wrote, to the sound of a million sighs of relief from Tom fans everywhere.

The pair had been partying together at the launch of Will.i.am's I.AM+ foto.sosho camera accessory (what a mouthful) and Lozza posted this snap earlier in the night, which also includes David Guetta.

"Could this be anymore random lol," she wrote, basically saying exactly what we were thinking.

HOWEVER, we would like to say that Lauren is clearly a girl after our own heart - she's giving Tom's pec a sneaky feel while he's distracted by the camera - which is exactly what we would have done.

NICE ONE.

What do you make of all this Scapers?
