She con­firmed S her break-up with jailed boyfriend Joey Mor­ri­son in Au­gust, but re­ports sur­faced last week that Lau­ren Goodger was try­ing to win him back, af­ter shar­ing a photo of her­self cud­dled up to his preg­nant sis­ter Char on so­cial me­dia.

Lau­ren, 31, dated Joey on and off for 15 months be­fore their split this sum­mer, tear­fully con­fess­ing that a re­la­tion­ship be­hind bars had be­come too dif­fi­cult to cope with.

BE­COM­ING A MUM

But sources say the for­mer TOWIE star has in­sisted there’s no go­ing back for the pair, and that she’s ready to throw her­self back into the sin­gle world.

A source says, “Lau­ren’s de­fi­ant that she’s not re­unit­ing with Joey. She posted the pic­ture be­cause she’s still close friends with Char and all of Joey’s fam­ily – she’s not vis­it­ing him in prison any more and they haven’t been in con­tact. She wants to start dat­ing again and find some­one she can be se­ri­ous with – she’s still des­per­ate to be­come a mum soon.”

Fol­low­ing her split from Joey, Lau­ren shared a string of photos of her for­mer size 8 body and re­vealed she was mo­ti­vated to get back in shape.

And fol­low­ing re­ports she was set to star in the new se­ries of Celebs Go Dat­ing, Lau­ren re­vealed on her In­sta­gram page last week that she’d had a meet­ing with Chan­nel 4.

VI­CIOUS CIR­CLE

The source says, “Lau­ren’s ready to date again and wants to look and feel her best. She doesn’t care whether she ends up dat­ing a fa­mous per­son or not at the mo­ment – she just wants to fi­nally find a gen­uine re­la­tion­ship. She’s turned back to her exes in the past, but she’s adamant that she’s break­ing that vi­cious cir­cle now.”
