Lauren began dating Joey Morrison in 2016 – while he was serving his sixteen years sentence for possession of a firearm, kidnap and blackmail.

This didn't stop love from blossoming and at Christmas Joey gifted Lauren with a ring while she spent the holidays with his family and friends – leading to speculation they might have been engaged.

Joey has had a string of high profile flings before Lauren – he used to date fellow Towie star Billi Mucklow and also had flings with Danielle Lloyd, Lauren Pope and Bianca Gascoigne.

During their time together, Lauren made no secret of the fact that she would like to have a baby with him.

The Towie star proudly revealed her partner's business plans with her fans on Instagram, sharing pictures of designer watches – which she was then forced to deny were stolen goods.

However, it all came to an end in July 2017 and Lauren confirmed she had broken up with Joey – following a furious row inside HMP Highpoint South.

In September 2018 he was released after serving nine years of a 16-year sentence.
