Former TOWIE star Lauren Goodger has been pictured with a black eye following her alleged attack days after her baby daughter's death.

Lauren, 35, could be seen running errands in Essex with a serious black eye in pictures obtained by The Sun just over a week on from the incident.

Last week, the star was taken to hospital with facial injuries in the early hours of Thursday (4 August).

The publication reported that a man was arrested and released on police bail on Friday (August 5) morning.

A police spokesperson has since told OK! Magazine: “Police were called at 00:37hrs on Thursday, 4 August to reports of an altercation at a residential address in Upminster, Essex. Officers attended.

"At the scene a woman, aged 30s, was found with facial injuries."

“A man, aged 25, was arrested on suspicion of assault. He was taken to an east London police station and subsequently bailed pending further enquiries.”

A source said she was "very shaken" and that she was waiting for X-ray results.

Daily Star has reached out to Essex Police and Lauren Goodger’s representatives for a comment, though the latter declined to provide a statement.

It comes after Lauren and her partner Charles Drury held a private family funeral for the couple’s late daughter Lorena – who was tragically pronounced dead shortly after her birth last month.

A source told The Sun how the reality star was already struggling to come to terms with her daughter's passing before the alleged incident.

The insider told the publication: "They had a private family ceremony on Wednesday which was not publicised. It was obviously a very emotional time

"Lauren did not drink after the funeral and was trying her best to hold it together."
