Later the same year, Lauren was embroiled in controversy when her ex-fiancé accused her of having an affair with NRL star Beau Ryan.

In August, she posted on Instagram that had learned "so much" about herself during her 'difficult year'.

"I used to spend most of my time trying to get others’ approval on stage and television,” she wrote.

"In the last year I have learnt so much about living for MY own happiness and with that has come strength and self love."
