The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Goodger’s ex-boyfriend Joey Morrison has been released from prison after nine years.
Lauren’s former boyfriend served nine years of a sixteen-year sentence for blackmail, kidnapping, possession of a firearm and actual bodily harm.
His sister, Charlotte, recorded the moment he arrived home after almost a decade behind bars, 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.”
Since then, she was rumoured to have reunited with Joey on multiple occasions – but the final straw came when she blasted him in a scathing rant in July.

Taking to Twitter, Lauren posted to her 1.25 million followers: “Joey Morrison been telling girls my car is his hahahaha please mate can’t rub 2 notes together!
“Can assure you now ! My Car Black GLE is MINE then joey put his name on my plate for control! CRINGE”.
It’s always been unclear how the duo first met, but it’s said the pair knew each other for “many years” before the start of their romance in 2016.
