Lauren Goodger's whirlwind romance with toyboy Charles Drury is moving at a rapid pace, and now Lauren Goodger has reportedly been warned by some of her pals to slow things down or risk getting seriously hurt again.

Lauren, 34, was reported to have moved Katie Price’s ex, Charles, 23, into her Essex home just three weeks after the pair publicly revealed they were dating.

And now insiders tell new magazine that the ex- TOWIE star’s friends have warned her they believe the relationship will run out of steam if she doesn’t protect her heart.

“Some of Lauren’s mates are extremely concerned about the speed at which the romance is moving and have urged her to think twice about moving Charles in,” new's source claimed.

“They’ve told her they reckon the honeymoon period will be over within weeks and they could risk splitting by Christmas if she isn’t careful."

“They think Lauren always moves at lightning speed and falls hard and fast, which is why her relationships crash and burn.

But despite some pals reportedly urging her to learn from past mistakes, she insists Charles is The One and that living together makes sense given that they spend 24/7 together already.”

Lauren has a history of dating bad boys. She was engaged to Mark Wright, 33, before he settled down with Michelle Keegan, and later dated jailbirds Jake McLean, 31, and Joey Morrisson, 34, with both relationships ending in tears.

Opening up to new in September, Lauren revealed she believed it wasn’t the right time for her to get into a serious relationship.

“I would love to be in love,” she said. “But I’m not ready at the minute. If you gave me my husband right now, I wouldn’t be ready to meet him.”

But her romance with builder Charles has progressed more quickly than any of her previous relationships, which has worried some of her pals.

“Lauren has lived with boyfriends in the past and has admitted she has a tendency to rush into things, but she’s adamant it’s different this time around,” the insider continued.

“She’s vowed to take things at her own pace and has urged pals not to worry, but she and Charles are already talking about buying a house together.”

Since they paired up a month ago, Lauren has posted a string of loved-up selfies on Instagram. Last week, she shared a clip of Charles bringing her coffee in bed and wrote: “Ain’t he a good boy with my coffee every morning.”

And Charles recently posted a shot of them enjoying drinks at Smoque restaurant in Bromley, writing: “The story of you & me is my favourite because it’s happening so naturally.”

The source added: “Lauren appears to be hell-bent on settling down as soon as possible and in her eyes there’s no point waiting around any longer and wasting time, given she feels she’s wasted so many years already.”
