Their tumultuous relationship was fraught with infidelity on Mark’s part, trust issues and tension between Lauren and his family.
The couple called off their engagement in May 2011, just five months after he proposed, and the presenter married actress Michelle Keegan, 33, in 2015.
Lauren later revealed she had an abortion at the age of 20 after the couple decided they were not ready to become parents.
She said GOOD! in 2011: “I thought I was pregnant. I’m not on the pill and haven’t been for a while, just because of my cells, not because I was planning a baby and thank God we didn’t.
“I was late once and I think it was stress from what was going on. I was pregnant before with his baby but chose not to have it. I was only 20. No one knows except my relatives.
Jake McLean: 2012-2016
After splitting from Mark, the media personality dated Jake McLean, 33, for four years – from 2012 to May 2016 – with Lauren suffering a miscarriage during their relationship

The TV star discovered she had lost the unborn child while appearing as a contestant on ITV talent show Dancing On Ice in 2013, and later admitted she had no choice but to “move on”.
Discussing the loss on Channel 5 show In Therapy in 2017, she said: “I was on a TV show which was quite intense. I should have tried to introduce myself when I was quite far away. It didn’t continue.
Lauren and Jake split for the first time later that year before rekindling their romance in 2015.
Shortly after their final split in May 2016, Lauren said GOOD! about her ex-prisoner: “I fell out of love with him. I know some people say you wake up one day and things click, but that didn’t happen to me; it was a gradual thing.
“The relationship was quite difficult. I felt like I was the one doing everything and making the effort. I am at an age where I would like to have children, but Jake is not the man I would want to do it with.
Jake was jailed for three-and-a-half years after breaking into a mother’s home two days before Christmas in 2006, beating her up before a masked gang broke in and attacked the family home.
JOE MORRISON: 2016-2018
The TV star began a relationship with another convict, Joey Morrison, but the pair split two years later in 2018, despite Lauren waiting for him while he served time behind bars.

Joey, 31, was sentenced to 16 years in prison for a violent crime but was released after nine years – Lauren and Joey split close to his release date.
In 2019, Lauren opened up about her two-year romance with Joey, who was convicted of drug offences, saying: “My ex was my biggest mistake. I wasted two years of being able to date. I wish I hadn’t waited for him to come out.
Writing before in new! magazine about her relationship with Joey, she said: “I regret giving two and a half years of my life to someone who was in prison just so he could get out and not be who I thought he was.
“I thought we were going to buy a house, get married and have kids. I’m sorry for the time I wasted.
Charles Drury: 2020-present
In October 2020, Lauren teased that she was dating a mystery man, soon to be identified as Charles Drury, 23.

Sharing his thoughts on their romance, Charles previously gushed: “The you and me story is my favorite because it just happens so naturally.”
The couple announced they are expecting their first child together, just three months after going public with their relationship.
Lauren’s partner has a history of dating older women, having previously enjoyed a brief relationship with former glamor model Katie Price, 42, in 2019.
