Charles Drury, who shares a daughter with ex-TOWIE star Lauren Goodger, has admitted he made a mistake by hooking up with an Instagram model during their brief split
Lauren Goodger and Charles Drury have appeared happier than ever since reconnecting following a brief split not long after the birth of their daughter.
And now builder Charles, 24, has admitted he made a mistake after an Instagram model came forward to reveal they’d slept together.
Gorgeous Amy Gilbert said she had started seeing Charles shortly after his split from Lauren, 35, and after he slid into her Instagram DMs.
The 24-year-old says they met up at his pad in East London for sex and even spent the whole weekend together before he went on to reconcile his romance with the reality star.
She told The Sun : “We were messaging for a couple of days on there and then he wanted me to go and meet him in a local place he was living – and I did.
“I slept with him on that night, it was quite intense first of all, then he asked to see me again the following day. I then went and met him again.”
Amy claims she then spent a whole weekend at Charles’ place and that they were “on and off” and talking every other day on FaceTime.
But she claims that he eventually went back to Lauren because he’s “fame hungry” and because of the “money”.
Amy claimed she’d questioned Charles one night when Lauren’s name kept popping up on his phone after midnight.
She said she had told him she was understanding that they shared daughter Larose, but didn’t get why they were in constant contact so late at night.
Amy claims they had an argument and Charles told her he wanted his daughter in his life, and that the next day she saw in the media that they were back together.
She said she’s disappointed that he didn’t tell her he was reuniting with Lauren.
And she said that she reached out to Lauren “woman to woman” to let her know what had happened between them.
Amy says Lauren told her she’d call later on, but when she got a call from an unknown number it was actually Charles, who told her to “stop ruining his life”.
Giving his side of the story, Charles claimed Amy was “sour she got cut off”.
He admitted that he had slept with her but that he had been “stupid” and that four or five days after their first point of contact that he realised he’d made “a mistake”.
He said he went back to Lauren because he “wanted to sort things out with my family”.
Lauren recently addressed her brief split from Charles, who previously dated Katie Price.
She told New magazine: “Listen, moving house and having a baby are very stressful things. Having a baby, as well as it being a beautiful and amazing thing, really does test couples.
“For Charlie, it’s a lot of change and I think he was quite overwhelmed with everything. As much as he loves me and Larose, he had to take five minutes out.”
Lauren’s representatives did not want to comment. The Mirror has also reached out to Charles.
