TOWIE star Lauren Goodger has thanked fans for their support following a "horrendous" time in her life.
She tragically lost her daughter Lorena last month after the baby was born with her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck.
Her boyfriend Charles Drury, 25, was then arrested over an alleged assault on her on the night of the baby’s funeral earlier this month.
And this week saw Lauren attend the funeral of her ex-boyfriend Jake McLean after he died in a car crash in Turkey, aged 33.

She added: "I do read your messages, thank you.
