Lauren's actions have caused some fans to fear that there's trouble in paradise
After excessive amounts of social media PDA, and giving multiple outpourings of her romantic feelings to media outlets, Lauren Goodger recently shocked her followers by deleting all trace of her incarcerated boyfriend, Joey Morrison, from Instagram.
And as we’ve seen in a number of cases in the recent past, an Insta-clearout is a big sign of major relationship trouble – and in many cases, signals the end (hello, Jesy Nelson and Chris Clark – or Ferne McCann and Arthur Collins).
However, Lauren’s spoken to Now about her decision to remove her boyfriend from her social media – and we’re happy to report that they’re still very much together.
Lauren responded to a Now story written on Tuesday (2nd May) that addressed the current speculation surrounding her year-long romance with jailbird Joey. And though he’s no longer on her public profiles, Joey’s as much a part of her life as before – and they just celebrated one-year together.
‘no we have not split it was our anniversary last month – and I’m keeping my relationship private for now thanks x’, the TOWIE favourite wrote to us on Twitter.
Though she’s been coy about the reasons behind her sudden change of heart, it’s imagined that it’s a lot less stress to navigate a relationship where one half is in prison and one’s out in the world, when there are fewer people inspecting your business.
Before now, it had been claimed that she and Joey had split one month ago after having an argument – but had gotten back together after some peace talks.
Either way, we’re happy to hear that the romance is still going strong – unconventional though it may be, there’s no denying how happy Lauren looks!
