Explaining his decision, Rigby said: "I'm looking for someone to be with permanently and I think you might be a little bit too old for me."
Clearly hurt by what had been said, Lauren refused to accept a hug from Rigby replying: "Stay away. No.
"You could have had the goods but you're not having it now because you're never going to have my backside now.
"I'm going, I don't want to be around him."
Appearing particularly disgruntled by Rigby's comments about her age, Lauren added: "Don't say that to a woman about age.
"Just make something up. That's your mother talking, alright?
"You will be slapping yourself when you know who I am but also, you'll be slapping yourself [because] you're not with me so there you go."
Responding to the tense exchange after Lauren exited the stage, Naked Attraction host Anna Richardson warned Rigby: "You've been properly b*****ked."
Looking tense, he replied: "I know."
Speaking after her exit and in spite of Rigby's snub, Lauren described herself as an 'empowered transgender woman'.
She added: "All I can say is, he's not getting this candy and he never will."
Speaking to Daily Star Online about her experience on the programme back in 2020, Lauren appeared to still have bad blood with suitor Rigby - who she described as an "arrogant sod".
She explained: "After [Rigby] said that I looked at him and I didn't find him attractive anyway.
"I thought to myself 'well you rude, arrogant, sod'.
"All the girls against me were half my age as well so it was tough."
