- Ex-Towie star Lauren Goodger, 35, has been rushed to hospital with serious facial injuries
- A 25-year-old man was arrested Thursday for allegedly assaulting her
- The incident reportedly happened just hours after her young daughter’s funeral
Former Towie star Lauren Goodger was attacked just hours after her baby daughter’s funeral and had to be hospitalized for serious facial injuries.
Lauren, 35, was attacked in the early hours of Thursday morning – just hours after she attended the funeral of their newborn daughter Lorena with partner Charles Drury, 25.
The couple’s little girl tragically died last month after being born with an umbilical cord tied around her neck.
Lauren had attended her daughter’s funeral with her family and was attacked later that night.
Police were called at 12.37am Thursday to receive reports of an altercation and a 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault. He has since been released on bail pending further investigation, Met Police said.
Dancing on Ice and Big Brother star Lauren was taken to hospital by her friend for medical checks after the incident and returned to hospital today for an X-ray and is now being comforted by family and friends.

Lauren was already at “rock bottom” because just five days before her child’s death on July 8, her ex-boyfriend Jake McLean, 33, died in a car accident in Bodrum, Turkey.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said on Friday evening: “Police were called at 12.37am on Thursday 4 August to report an altercation.
“Officers attended. A woman in her 30s was found at the scene with facial injuries.
“A man has been arrested on suspicion of assault.
“He was taken to a police station in east London and then released on bail pending further investigation. Inquiries continue.’
A source told The Sun: “Anyone who knows [Lauren] is so excited – she was already at rock bottom but it kinda got worse.’
Lauren’s rep declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.

Lauren and Charles’ romance first came to light in October 2020. They announced that they were expecting their first child together just three months after going public
The alleged attack came just hours after Lauren attended the funeral of her baby daughter Lorena.
Doctors tried in vain to save the 9-pound baby, but she was born with two knots in her umbilical cord, which was tied around her neck.
After her death, her traumatized mother spent hours saying goodbye to her.
The heartbroken star also later revealed that she still “has a little bump,” which sometimes leads her to believe her little girl is “still around.”
She said: “It’s weird. My body feels like it’s restless, like it’s missing a newborn.
Lauren posted an Instagram message telling how much she loved her daughter, who died minutes after she was born on July 8, and said: “I carried you, I felt you grow. Longed for the day when we would meet. Dreamed of your future. Not only did I know you, I fell in love with you.”
Lauren and Charles have a year-old daughter Larose together, but split for three weeks last year before reconciling.

She shared a heartbreaking series of texts to her Instagram Stories after the accident.
Lauren’s post showed a black background while the lyrics to the song gradually appeared on the screen.
The lyrics read: “Search your heart, search your soul. If you find me there, look no more.”
