Lauren Goodger admits she fancies Love Island star and TOWIE boy after dreaming about the male stars

Mark Wright: 1999-2011

Lauren found fame on The Only Way Is Essex during a 12-year on-and-off relationship with ex-boyfriend Mark Wright.

Their tumultuous relationship was filled with infidelity on Mark’s part, trust issues, and tensions between Lauren and her family.

The couple called off their engagement in May 2011, just five months after their proposal, and the presenter married actress Michelle Keegan, 33, in 2015.

Lauren then revealed she had an abortion at the age of 20 after the couple decided they were not ready to be parents.

She said OKAY! in 2011: ‘I thought I was pregnant. I’m not on the pill and haven’t been for a while, just because of my cells, not because I was planning a baby and thank God we didn’t.

Once I was late and I think it was because of the stress of what was going on. I was pregnant before with your baby, but chose not to have it. I was only 20 years old. No one knows except my close family.

Jake McLean: 2012-2016

After splitting from Mark, the media personality dated Jake McLean, 33, on and off for four years from 2012 to May 2016, with Lauren suffering a miscarriage during their relationship.

The reality star found out she had lost the unborn child while appearing as a contestant on ITV’s talent show Dancing On Ice in 2013, later admitting she has no choice but to “move on”.

Speaking of the loss on Channel 5’s In Therapy show in 2017, she said: “I was on a TV show which was quite intense.” I had to try to act when it was quite far away. It didn’t last.

Lauren and Jake first broke up later that year before rekindling their romance in 2015.

Shortly after their final split in May 2016, Lauren told her OKAY! of his former convict ex: ‘I fell in love with him. I know some people say that you wake up one day and things fall into place, but that didn’t happen to me; It was something gradual.

“The relationship was pretty tough. I felt that it was me who did everything and put in the effort. I’m at the age where I would like to have children, but Jake is not the type of man I would want to do it with.’

Jake was jailed for three and a half years after scamming into a mother’s house two days before Christmas in 2006, overpowering her before a masked gang entered and raided the family home.

In July 2022, Jake died at the age of 33 in a car accident in Turkey, where he was vacationing with his girlfriend, TOWIE star Yazmin Oukhellou.


The reality star entered into a relationship with another convict, Joey Morrison, but the pair split two years later, in 2018, despite Lauren waiting for him while he was serving time behind bars.

Joey, 31, received a 16-year prison sentence for a violent crime, but was released after nine years: Lauren and Joey broke up around the time of his release.

In 2019, Lauren opened up about her two-year romance with Joey, who was convicted of drug-related offenses, saying, “My ex was my biggest mistake.” I wasted two years when I could have been dating. I wish I hadn’t waited for him to come out.

Writing previously in New! magazine about her relationship with Joey, she said, “I’m sorry I gave two and a half years of my life to someone who was in jail just to get him to come out and not be what I thought he was.”

‘I thought we were going to have a house, get married and have children. I’m sorry for the time I’ve wasted.

Charles Drury: 2020-2022

In October 2020, Lauren teased that she was dating a mystery man, soon to be identified as 23-year-old Charles Drury.

The amateur soccer player and builder filled his social media account with images of his girlfriend.

Sharing his thoughts on their romance, Charles previously said, “The you and me story is my favorite because it’s happening so naturally.”

The couple announced that they were expecting their first child together, Larose, just three months after going public with their relationship.

They had a second baby, and Loran announced that she was pregnant in January 2022.

Lorena passed away shortly after her birth in June 2022 after 10 doctors fought to save her life when she was born with two umbilical cord knots tied around her neck.

Lauren’s partner has a history of dating older women, having previously enjoyed a brief fling with former glamor model Katie Price, 42, in 2019.

While the couple first broke up in November 2021 amid claims that he was cheating, they got together in early 2022 after Lauren got pregnant, but split soon after.

Lauren was allegedly assaulted on the day of her baby’s funeral. Charles was later arrested and released on bail after the incident.
