Hint, hint: And on Tuesday, Lauren Goodger teased fans with a glimpse into her romantic life as she revealed she had spent Boxing Day with her jailbird on-off beau Joey Morrisson's brother and sister - while also confessing to having a totally sober Christmas
Lauren was dating Joey for over a year having 'met' him when she picked up the phone at his sister's house while he was calling from HMP Highpoint South prison.
She was then visiting Joey in the midst of his 16 year sentence, after he was found in possession of £10,000 in cash and £60,000 worth of cocaine.
He was convicted of a string of offences, including possession of a firearm, kidnapping, blackmail and actual bodily harm, and is due for a 2018 release.
After much discussion of their break-ups and make-ups, her glaring hint came on Boxing Day as she was seen cosying up to Joey's brother and a beaming female.

Big reveal: Atop her bond with the Morrissons, Lauren revealed she had not drank over the festive season, as she took to Twitter to reveal she was 'recovering'
She captioned the image: 'Ended Xmas with a lovely Boxing Day #ThankYou #laughter #giggles #friends #chats #cuddles', after which his pregnant sister Char added a series of hearts beneath the shot.
In November, Lauren hinted at spending time with the family as she told Closer: 'We’re still mates. There’s no bad blood.
'I’m still mates with Joey and his family and I see them all the time. Will I spend Christmas with them? We’ll have to see what happens.'

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Lauren for comment.
In August a representative for the former fiancée of Mark Wright told MailOnline: 'Lauren and Joey haven't officially broken up, but Lauren is questioning her relationship and having doubts.
'It's not easy being with someone who is in prison especially with all the scrutiny and speculation.'
No more? The comment came after a source claimed to The Sun that Lauren had confirmed she and Joey are no longer an item
They added: 'She loves Joey deeply but she needs time to work out if this relationship has legs and whether it will all be worth it in the end.'
The comment came after a source claimed to The Sun that Lauren had confirmed she and Joey are no longer an item.
'She said she is finished with Joey and that the relationship is over,' the insider told the paper. 'It didn't really come as a shock to anyone because people know it wasn't exactly the perfect relationship for her to be in.
The Essex resident appeared on Loose Women in September to set things straight regarding her crumbled dalliance with her ex-boyfriend Joey Morrison, who happens to be locked up in prison.
'He was meant to come out, last year, in November and things were great,' she explained, composed at first. 'But where things got set back, it put strain on us. I couldn't wait no more. It was too much pressure.'
