Their split was acrimonious to say the least, with Lauren Goodger recently hitting out at her former fiancé Mark Wright, but now new footage has emerged of Lauren supporting him during their relationship.
The final part of Channel 4's harrowing Jade Goody documentary, Jade: The Reality Star Who Changed Britain, aired last night (August 21) and it featured the wedding of cancer-stricken Jade Goody to Jack Tweed.
Mark acted as best man to his friend Jack at the wedding, which took place just days before Jade sadly passed away.
As the couple took to the floor for their first dance and the TV cameras panned round to the emotional crowd, eagle-eyed viewers spotted a distraught Mark wiping away tears.
Next to him, with her arm placed tenderly around his shoulder, was then-partner Lauren.
The pair were unknowns at the time, only rising to fame the following year when they started their stint in TOWIE.
Fans said it was "surreal" to see the one-time couple together.

Michelle revealed that Mark had been friends with Jack for years and became friends with Jade when they got together.
She said: "He's friends with Jack, he was friends with Jack for a long time before we got together."
She added: "They still speak now, Jack still comes to family parties, he's really nice, he's a really lovely guy."
Admitting they hadn't yet watched the documentary, Michelle added: "I'm sure we'll catch up on that because I know Mark was close to Jade and Jack so yeah, we will."
Lauren's supporting role is a far cry from the former couple's relationship today.
She recently branded Mark's marriage to Michelle as "really weird", while he has tweeted her telling her to act like a "proper woman" in the past.
Jade passed away on Mother's Day 2009, after a long battle with cervical cancer.
The documentary was part of a three-part series that some viewers found "uncomfortable" to watch.
