The footballer is signed with model agency FOMO and, like his girlfriend, launched his own OnlyFans account.

Who has Lauren Goodger dated in the past?
Most famously, Lauren was in a relationship with Towie co-star and radio presenter Mark Wright.
After meeting young and beginning dating at the age of 15, they stayed together for 11 years.
In 2011, the couple got engaged on Towie, but they split just five months later.
Since then they have said negative things about each other in the press.
On June 11, 2017, Mark was forced to deny shocking claims made by Lauren that she believed he was dating her and now-wife Michelle Keegan at the same time.
After Mark, Lauren’s next long term relationship was with Jake McClean, who she dated from 2012 until 2013.
While they got back together in 2015, the couple broke up for good in 2016 with Lauren branding the relationship “toxic”.
Lauren began dating Joey Morrison in 2016 – while he was serving his sixteen years sentence for possession of a firearm, kidnap and blackmail.
This didn’t stop love from blossoming and at Christmas, Joey gifted Lauren with a ring while she spent the holidays with his family and friends – leading to speculation they might have been engaged.
Joey has had a string of high profile flings before Lauren – he used to date fellow Towie star Billi Mucklow and also had flings with Danielle Lloyd, Lauren Pope and Bianca Gascoigne.
The Towie star proudly revealed her partner’s business plans with her fans on Instagram, sharing pictures of designer watches – which she was then forced to deny were stolen goods.
However, it all came to an end in July 2017 and Lauren confirmed she had broken up with Joey – following a furious row inside HMP Highpoint South.
In September 2018 he was released after serving nine years of a 16-year sentence.
In 2019, Lauren participated in Celebs Go Dating, and dated members of the public to vary degrees of success.
She candidly told matchmakers, Anna and Paul: “The only thing I can understand is I felt rejected, that’s why I stay in these long relationships when I shouldn’t, and no matter how much they put me through, I still stay there for a long time.”
