Katie Price has reportedly “sent a warning” to Lauren Goodger as it is rumoured she is dating Katie’s ex-toyboy Charles Drury.

The 42 year enjoyed a brief fling with 23 year old electrician Charles last July, with it being reported he has moved on with Lauren, 34.

Former glamour model Katie is said to be “fuming” that Charles has made a move on the former The Only Way Is Essex star, telling her she should be “very careful.”

A source said: “Katie’s fuming as she is convinced Charles just wants to be famous and that’s why he’s dating Lauren.

“She’s said Lauren should be very very careful about letting him into her life.

“She’s actually shocked that Lauren would consider dating him in the first place,” the insider continued to tell The Sun.

Lauren teased on social media that she has been spending time with a mystery man, with eagle-eyed followers identifying the hunk as Charles.

Charles shared a snap of himself in a bedroom that looked very similar to that of Lauren’s.

The pair also used the same song in an Instagram story, leading fans to believe further that they are now an item.

If there was any doubt Lauren and Charles were just friends, the brunette bombshell called Charles her “morning workout,” hinting that the pair had slept together.

Reality star Lauren shared an image of herself snuggled up in bed with a man believed to be electrician Charles, with his face obscured by a sparkling heart emoji.

She went on to share a video of Charles dancing in the mirror in her bedroom with her 754,000 followers, but once again hid his face with emojis.
