Lauren Goodger has been single since 2018 after splitting from her bad boy ex Joey Morrison.
The TOWIE star, who recently opened up about going to see a therapist, said previously that she just wanted to "have fun" without a man and not take things too seriously.
But after a difficult lockdown with no social contact, it seems Lauren has jumped back into the dating pool and has been linked with Katie Price's ex-fling Charles Dury.
Lauren, 34, has had quite the turbulent dating history, the majority of which was documented on TOWIE when she was with Mark Wright, so lets take a look at who else she has been unlucky in love with…

Lauren was with Michelle Keegan's now hubby Mark Wright for ten years before they split in 2012.
The former TOWIE stars were engaged and had started dating when Lauren was just 15. She had his name tattooed on her bikini line which she later had lasered off during an episode on The Only Way is Essex.

Their very public break-up was heavily documented on TOWIE, with their relationship being one of the central storylines early on in the show.
It's been reported that the couple split over cheating claims on Lauren's part, which she has always denied. In the decade since neither have had a kind word to say about each other.
And shortly after Mark got engaged to Michelle Keegan, Lauren posted a cryptic message on Instagram saying: "'She's the kind of girl a guy meets when he's too young, and f***s up because there's too much living to do. But later he realises she's perfect.'"
Lauren split from ex Jake McLean in May 2016, dating on and off for four years before ending it for good.
Speaking exclusively to OK! Magazine at the time, the former TOWIE star said a "weight has been lifted" since parting ways with Jake.
She said: "My last relationship [with Mark Wright] was toxic and I jumped straight into a relationship with Jake and that turned out to be toxic, too."
Speaking on Channel 5's In Therapy, Lauren revealed she fell for Joey Morrison after chatting to him on the phone.
"This is the weirdest relationship ever, but it's exciting and I think that's why I like it. A bad boy never cheats, a bad boy is very loyal. They're strong family men, they've just got a bit of a naughty side to them," she said.
The convicted criminal, 30, left prison in 2018 after serving half of his 17 year, 8 month prison sentence.
She said she was at a friend's house when Joey called the home phone and she answered: "Yes, he's not been an angel but people deserve a second chance and his crimes never involved innocent people," Lauren told Closer.
Lauren, who also got a tattoo of Joey's name after getting her ex Jake's removed, then split from him in 2018 after two and a half years together.

In October 2020, Lauren teased that she has been spending time with a mystery man on social media, with eagle-eyed followers identifying the hunk as Charles Dury, 23.
Charles – who enjoyed a brief fling with Katie Price, 42, in 2019 – shared a snap of himself in a bedroom that looked very similar to former The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren's.
The pair also used the same song in an Instagram story, leading fans to believe further that they are now an item.
If there was any doubt Lauren and Charles were just friends, the brunette bombshell called Charles her "morning workout," hinting that the pair had slept together.
