Her boyfriend Joey Morrison is currently serving a 16-year-sentence but is set to be released in a couple of months after serving half his time.

She told the publication: “He’s not a bad person because he’s in prison. Yes, he’s not been an angel but people deserve a second chance and his crimes never involved innocent people.

“I’m going to visit him over the Christmas period and I really wanted to see him on Christmas Day, but sadly the prison is closed.”

Lauren, 30, has recently uploaded a cute photo of his and hers Chanel trainers, priced at £500, to show her love for him.
