A loved one of the reality star took to Twitter to thank fans for their kind messages and asked them to “pray and send love” for Lauren as “she is still suffering from “memory issues and confusion.”

The post read: "Yesterday they moved Lauren back to recovery, she is under close watch. She still has memory issues and confusion.

““The doctors say that she does not need another operation atm they are taking it day by day. Please pray for her and send her your love. Thank you for your kindness."

On April 16, Lauren’s mother Katy shared a picture of Lauren lying on a hospital bed before she underwent the surgical procedure.

She wrote in her caption: "Lauren has woken up after her brain surgery. They had to shave her hair. As you know this is Lauren’s worst nightmare but she would have died if not.

“The amazing staff in the Heath Hospital have been wonderful. Thank you for your kind words, her recovery ahead. Update to follow."

Lauren shot to fame as a child antiques expert called James, who appeared on the Antiques Roadshow and Wogan, before she underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2001.

She later starred in the television series Trust Me - I’m a Beauty Therapist and then appeared on Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 5 in 2013. She placed third that year, behind the winner, Charlotte Crosby.
