Sharing a picture of the tragic victim, she wrote: "Rest in peace Spud.
"This virus is real, and it's spreading. Please stay at home people."
The former Towie star added: "So sad a friend of a friend died yesterday from Islington.
"He caught the virus from hospital and didn't make it.
"This is real just keep safe and clean."
It seems Lauren has had a change of heart about staying inside as just days ago she became embroiled in a row with an NHS worker who told her to stop going to work in a makeshift facemask.
After seeing a paparazzi image of her walking around, one upset user wrote: "You are not meant to be out. So so selfish. Did you seriously not think before posting this??
"I work for the NHS. People are dying. Please delete this and please stay indoors."
But Lauren replied: "I am working please shut up … until the government and NHS says all salons closed until then I will be working!"
She told another commenter who claimed she was "making a mockery of a very serious situation" to "bore off".
Despite her resistance she has however made the decision to stop work at her salon now, telling fans: "I am still on the Instagram for bookings and planning more beautiful faces for when this COVID-19 passes."
Lauren’s loss comes as the number of cases of coronavirus in the UK last night rose to 9,529 – with the death toll now standing at 465.
