Former The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Goodger says she kisses her new beau Charles Drury in his sleep.

Despite having only recently embarked on a romance with Katie Price's ex-boyfriend a few weeks ago, Lauren is clearly smitten with her 23-year-old new beau.

Taking to his Instagram Story, Charles shared a screenshot of a WhatsApp message from Lauren, 34, expressing how she keeps kissing him in his sleep.

Lauren wrote in a WhatsApp message: "I can't sleep and I am next to you and I love you so much.

"Keep kissing you in your sleep. Just wanted to text you this even though your here next to me."

Prior to her relationship with Charles, Lauren was in a lengthy on-off relationship with fellow TOWIE original Mark Wright.

Their high-publicised break up led to her romancing Joey Morrison and Jake McLean.

Charles previously dated Katie Price in 2019 following her break-up with then-fiancé Kris Boyson.

Meanwhile, Lauren has also been uploading racy photos to her OnlyFans account as well as keeping up her other social media commitments and focusing on her beauty brands.

Speaking about her figure with new! magazine earlier this year, Lauren said: "I've always been thick set and I've always had a big bum. That's the way it is."

"Feel it if you want! I’ve not had implants," she continued.

She was also adamant that she has not had a Brazilian bum lift.

She added: "No, I've just got a big a**e! Feel free to do any X-rays or scans or whatever you need to do to prove it."

Has Lauren finally found 'the one' after some ill-fated matches?

Charles also has an active OnlyFans account where he uploads content to be viewed by subscribers.
