The Only Way Is Essex beauty Lauren Goodger has hinted she might be romantically involved with someone following her latest sultry post.
Lauren, 32, has had a rocky year after being on/off with jailbird beau Joey Morrison – who was released from prison one day ago.
But taking to Instagram, the brunette beauty has unveiled to her 786,000 followers that she seems quite smitten with someone – although didn’t reveal exactly who he was.
Posting an image of herself on the phone, she captioned the shot with: “When they make you smile”.
OK! Online have contacted a representative for Lauren for comment.
Her sassy snap comes after her ex, Joey, was released from jail after serving almost a decade behind bars.
Lauren’s former boyfriend served nine years of a 16 year sentence for blackmail, kidnapping, possession of a firearm and actual bodily harm.
His sister, Charlotte, recorded the moment he arrived home, gushing over his release in an Instagram post.
“Welcome home Joey… I honestly can’t imagine how he must be feeling after 9 years away,” she wrote to her 2,600 followers, alongside an image of her baby son reunited with his uncle.
“We’re have them years gone to think I had just turned 17. CELEBRATION TONIGHT.”
She then took to her Instagram story to further flaunt his return, showing him arriving in a luxury car and exclaiming: “I’m out!”
Lauren previously confirmed she had broken up with Joey – following a furious row inside HMP Highpoint South – earlier this year, stating. “I can’t predict the future.
“Despite this split, I’m focused on marriage and kids. I’d love that to be with Joey, but who knows.”
