The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star has been reunited with her beau Joey Morrison - who was jailed in 2008 for a series of violent drug-related crimes, kidnapping, blackmail and actual bodily harm - after he was freed from behind bars after serving almost a decade of his 17-year sentence, according to the MailOnline.

It was revealed last week that Joey was going to be released and him and Lauren were planning to take their relationship "slow" once he was back in the outside world.

A source said recently: "It's a huge moment for Joey and for Lauren. They're going to be taking it slow when he comes out because it's a huge change for him. But she's waited for this moment for a very long time. It's going to be something special."

The 31-year-old beauty has made no secret of the fact she's been counting down the days until she's reunited with her beau and said she thought sex would be explosive.

She said recently: "I feel like I'm a teenager again, and I'm nervous that I've forgotten what to do in the bedroom. But one thing's for sure - my underwear is going to be unreal. There's been so much chemistry and build up - it's going to be amazing."

And, although most of their quality time has been spent in front of prying eyes of prison wardens, Lauren is hoping that she can have a baby with Joey this year.

She said: "I want 10 kids. It's going to be like the Essex Sound Of Music. [Joey] loves kids and he knows that's part of the plan.

"I can see him changing nappies and getting up late at night. He's very hands-on."

Lauren announced last year that she had decided to call time on her relationship with Joey because she couldn't stand the distance between them, but she sparked rumours they were back together when she celebrated Christmas with his family.
