Her father, Mark Harries, worked in the hotel business and catering trade.

The family moved to Cardiff when Harries was still a baby and from the age of five, she enjoyed art and antiques, and had an apparent ability to spot bargains at local jumble sales.

Lauren began making TV appearances in 1988 on Terry Wogan's UK chat show, Wogan when she was just 10-years-old.

Harries was memorable to viewers for her odd appearance including the use of bow ties, curly golden hair and formal attire.

At the young age of 13, she wrote an antique guide, Rags to Riches.
