Who is Lauren Goodger’s ex-boyfriend?
From 2016-2018 Lauren Goodger dated Joey Morrisson. However, their relationship was far from conventional as Joey was behind bars.
A report from the Daily Mail details that Joey was handed a 16-year sentence for a string of offences, including possession of a firearm, kidnapping, blackmail and actual bodily harm in 2010.
He served nine years of the sentence and was released in 2019. But, it wasn’t all smiles as Joey came out of prison. He and Lauren called things off after she found out he was messaging other women while in prison.
Lauren on Celebs Go Dating 2019
During her stint on Celebs Go Dating Lauren has made it clear that she’s looking for a man to settle down with.
She opened up to Anna and Paul during episode 4 about her previous relationships. And things got emotional for Lauren when she detailed how her mother gave her up to her father when she was four years old as she couldn’t cope with raising three children.
Lauren cried and cited the event as part of the reason why she clings onto the wrong relationships in her adult life.
Lauren’s relationship with Mark Wright
Also mentioned during her heart to heart with the Celebs Go Dating agents was the fact that she’d dated her TOWIE co-star Mark Wright.
Lauren told the agents that Mark was her first love. After meeting at school, the pair were together for over 10 years.
Today Mark is married to actress Michelle Keegan and the pair have been together since 2012.
