Lauren Goodger looks ‘unrecognizable’ after she was allegedly ‘attacked’ on the day of her baby’s funeral.


They were mourning their loss in Upminster, Essex, when the alleged attack took place.

Just hours after the August 4 event, claims emerged that Lauren, 35, had been assaulted and suffered a fractured eye socket.


While Drury denies responsibility, he was held by police until he was released on bail last Friday (5 August).

The sun reported that Lauren’s sister Nicola posted a picture of Larose on her private social media account with the caption:


“This beautiful little girl doesn’t even know how lucky she is to have such a strong, amazing mother! As long as you have each other, you will both be fine.”

The TOWIE star’s friend Lauryn Goodman has shared that she breaks down every time she sees Lauren’s horrific injuries.


Lauryn said, “I couldn’t have said it better myself. I’ve also seen a few things and I want to say that there are NEVER two sides to a story when my friend’s face looks the way it does. She is unrecognizable.

“It brings me to tears every time I look at her – please, if anyone is ever in this situation, never think it’s best to keep still or hide.


“Always confide in yourself and approach people. Better days will come and you’re not trapped. Promise. Be strong for your little ones,” Lauryn added.

According to a source, Lauren is currently staying with a friend as she is devastated by the whole situation.

The 35-year-old actor has been part of the reality show since its debut in 2010 and left in its sixth season. Fans may also know Lauren from her appearances on Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Big Brother.


Lauren was born in Bethnal Green, London and grew up with her half-brother Tony and half-sister Nicola. She told it once The daily mirror that she hardly speaks to her family because of her job in reality TV, but they have since reconciled.

In 2013, Lauren released a book titled Secrets of an Essex Girl which followed her rise to fame, from working as a secretary and building a life with her ex-boyfriend Mark Wright to the harassment she received from the paparazzi experienced.

Lorena died suddenly at just two days old after a textbook pregnancy that left Lauren devastated and prompted an autopsy.

Ten doctors fought to save the newborn right after Lauren went into labor.


In an interview with The Sun, Lauren said: “I went to the hospital thinking I was going to come home with a little girl, but I came home with nothing.

“Lorena was a healthy baby and it was a textbook pregnancy… Doctors believe her oxygenation may have been restricted because she had two knots in her umbilical cord, but babies can usually still get enough oxygen.”

British TV personality legend Gemma Collins has appeared on many shows similar to Lauren Goodger – including Dancing on Ice, Celeb Big Brother and The Only Way is Essex, but is also a good friend.


The pair often comment on each other’s accomplishments and failures, even when Lauren thought Gemma would be in I’m A Celeb…Get Me Out of Here so early on “wasted opportunity.”

Also, when Lauren announced the death of her newborn Lorena, Gemma replied:


“Lauren I’m devastated for you sending so much love right now.”

Dancing On Ice judge Jason Gardiner

While on Dancing on Ice in 2013, Lauren was secretly pregnant with her ex Jake Mclean’s baby before suffering a miscarriage.


The reality star recently hit back at some of the judges for their “vile” comments after a highlights show aired.

One judge Lauren particularly targeted was Jason Gardiner, who branded Lauren “the sensuality of a walrus on ice” in a dance with her partner Michael Zenezini.

Mark and Lauren met at the age of 15 and began a relationship that would last over a decade.


They became co-stars on TOWIE and were engaged while appearing on the show in 2011, but split just five months later.

Since the split, the two have posted negative comments about each other in the press, including when Mark denied claims in 2017 that he was dating Lauren and his current wife Michelle Keegan at the same time.

He and Lauren publicly flirted on social media before making it official on their Instagram Stories in October 2020.

The couple became parents to Larose for the first time in July 2021 when Charles shared a picture of their newborn with the caption:


“All I can say is wow. I look at you and I can’t believe we created something so precious and beautiful. You and your mommy are my whole world, daddy loves you so much baby girl.”
