Officers received a report of a disturbance in Upminster, Essex. early Thursday — just hours after the couple’s daughter’s funeral.

Lauren, 35, was taken to hospital around 1am with serious facial injuries, while her construction worker boyfriend, 25, was arrested and taken into custody.

He was eventually released on bail in the early hours of Friday. Lauren has also been interviewed by the police.

It came after a private family funeral for the couple’s daughter, Lorena, who was tragically pronounced dead shortly after her birth last month.

A source told The Sun tonight that Lauren was at an all-time low before Thursday’s alleged incident.

They said, “It happened after Lauren and Charlie came back from Lorena’s funeral.

“They had a private family ceremony on Wednesday that was not publicized.

“It was obviously a very emotional time.

“Lauren didn’t drink after the funeral and did her best to keep it together.

“Everyone who knows her is so upset — she was already at an all-time low, but it’s somehow gotten worse.”

The alleged incident took place at an address in Upminster, Essex, shortly after midnight.

Drury was questioned at an East London police station all Thursday before being released around 3 a.m. Friday.

After the alleged attack, Dancing on Ice and Big Brother star Lauren was taken to the hospital by a friend for a medical check-up.

She came back there today for X-rays. The television beauty also gave the agents a statement.

The day before Drury’s arrest, Lauren shared an emotional message with their daughter Lorena, who passed away minutes after she was born on July 8.

In addition to butterfly, angel and pregnancy emojis, she posted on Instagram: “I wore you, I felt you grow. Longed for the day we would meet. Dreamed of your future.

“I didn’t just know you, I fell in love with you.”

Ten doctors unsuccessfully tried to save the 9-pound baby – who had a strong heartbeat before Lauren’s contractions started.

She was born with two knots in her umbilical cord tied around her neck.

After her death, her traumatized mother said goodbye to her for hours.

The heartbroken star also later revealed that she still has “a bit of a bump”, which sometimes makes her think her baby girl is “still there”.

She said: “It’s weird. My body feels like it’s restless, like it’s missing a newborn.”

Lauren and Drury – who have a daughter Larose together – had a difficult relationship prior to Thursday’s alleged attack.

The couple broke up for three weeks last year and then reconciled.

But Amy Gilbert, 24, then revealed that she’d met Drury for sex during the split at his east London home — and they’d even spent a weekend together.

Amy said at the time: “We were messaging for a few days and then he wanted me to meet him at a local place where he lived – and I did.

“I slept with him that night, it was pretty intense in the first place. Then he asked to see me again the next day.”

In 2019, Drury also revealed that he was a toyboy lover of Katie Price, 44.

But he told The Sun he was “disappointed” in the bedroom and rated the former model only a “one out of ten” after they frolic on their first date.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said tonight: “Police were called at 12:37am on Thursday, August 4, to reports of an altercation at a residential address in Upminster, Essex.

Agents were present. “A 30-year-old woman was found at the scene with facial injuries.

A 25-year-old 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. The investigations continue.”

Muscular fitness fanatic Drury – an ex-lover of Katie Price – was questioned by police all Thursday after his arrest before being released on bail early Friday.

Dancing on Ice and Big Brother star Lauren was taken to hospital by her boyfriend for a medical check up after the incident.

She went back to the hospital today for x-rays.

Charles’s arrest came just a day after Lauren shared a touching message to the lost mite Lorena.

Lauren posted an Instagram post sharing how much she loved her daughter, who passed away minutes after she was born on July 8.

She said “I carried you, I felt you grow,” the reality TV star posted on her stories alongside butterfly, angel and pregnancy emojis.

Longed for the day we would meet. Dreamed of your future. Not only did I know you, I fell in love with you.”
