"I've been through so much in my life and I am looking back on this year and I still deal with a hell of a lot behind closed doors but I want you to know never be alone, things can change a, dark place is never dark forever," Lauren wrote.

"I seek professional help now (haven't had a session in a while due to lockdowns and lockdown is very hard, my mind runs away with itself)."

"Let's see the end of 2020 and 2021 together a stronger one."

Lauren also revealed she found some notes on her phone she'd written to herself during her time of crisis last year but was not sure about posting them because they were "very personal and quite sad".

This year has also been challenging for Lauren who could not spend Christmas with her family due to coronavirus restrictions.

She told The Sun's Fabulous magazine: "I was meant to be going out to a restaurant called Melin in Chigwell on Christmas Day. I’d booked a table for family and friends. Then we got hit with Tier 4, so we’re going to keep it small.

"On Christmas Eve, I was hoping to see my mum and sisters but we can’t because of the restrictions. It’s really sad.

"We still don’t know if we’ll be able to see Charlie’s family."

Reality TV star Lauren moved in with Katie Price's ex in October after a whirlwind romance of just three weeks of dating.
