The 'Only Way is Essex' star dated her jailbird boyfriend for 15 months before the pair called it quits "a few months" ago.

Captioning a video posted to Instagram, she said: "There's been a lot of speculation and claims recently about me and Joey about my weight and our relationship. We haven't been together for a few months now and I haven't said anything until now as I don't have to explain my every move and should be allowed to deal with things in my own time. My antics out and about recently are because I am single and enjoying myself with my friends.

"Me and Joey are still speaking, and we're good friends as nothing happened to make us fall out. I wanted to put it into my own words so it can't get twisted and also because of all the 'sources' out there and people saying stuff. Joey will be home in not too long hopefully and I will see him as we've been through this last year and half together and have a friendship and respect for each other. He's helped me a lot just as I've been there for him so of course we'll remain friends. #always #love #respect #bond. (sic)"

It comes after Lauren admitted she is "having doubts" about her relationship with Joey.

Her spokesperson said in July: "Lauren and Joey haven't officially broken up, but Lauren is questioning her relationship and having doubts. It's not easy being with someone who is in prison especially with all the scrutiny and speculation. She loves Joey deeply but she needs time to work out if this relationship has legs and whether it will all be worth it in the end."
