Joey was convicted of a string of offences back in 2010, including possession of a firearm, kidnapping, blackmail and actual bodily harm.
On Saturday, Charlotte’s celebrations were shared by followers who penned captions under the shot reading: ‘Aw char love this .. have a lovely day xxxxxx… Love this welcome home… Amazing!! Sooo happy for you all… Welcome home Joey!!’
Lauren enjoyed a short-lived romance with Joey but called it quits after 15 months together in September 2017 – however she has since confessed they are in touch.
She was dating Joey for over a year having ‘met’ him when she picked up the phone at his sister’s house while he was calling from HMP Highpoint South prison.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Lauren for comment.

Last week, The Sun reported Lauren and Joey would reunite in two weeks after his early release from his 16-year prison sentence, after being convicted in 2010.
A source told the publication: ‘It’s a huge moment for Joey and for Lauren. They’re going to be taking it slow when he comes out because it’s a huge change for him… But she’s waited for this moment for a very long time. It’s definitely going to be something special.’
Lauren was spotted visiting Joey in the midst of his 16 year sentence after he was found in possession of £10,000 in cash and £60,000 worth of cocaine.

The Essex resident appeared on Loose Women in September to set things straight regarding her crumbled dalliance with her ex-boyfriend Joey.
‘He was meant to come out, last year, in November and things were great,’ she explained to the panel, ‘But where things got set back, it put strain on us. I couldn’t wait no more. It was too much pressure.’
However, in November, Lauren hinted at spending time with the family as she told Closer: ‘We’re still mates. There’s no bad blood. I’m still mates with Joey and his family and I see them all the time.’
Last month, the TOWIE star was seen with personalised number plates adorned with her incarcerated lover’s name while she focused her Now Magazine column this week on her widely-discussed romance too.

Lauren has reportedly been secretly in business with her convict ex-boyfriend Joey for a whole year, despite ‘splitting’ seven months ago.
And just two weeks after she was caught with a screen saver of his face, Lauren changed the license plate on her car to include the jailbird’s name.
Putting to bed rumours in their romance, Lauren seemed keen to set the record straight as she awaits his release from his lengthy prison spell.
In the column, she wrote: ‘Joey and I are still in touch, which I have never denied. For now, he is focused on coming out and after such a long time I was to protect him so I’m not discussing him or our situation. People have to respect that.
‘The number plate thing seems like a big deal but it’s not. They were ordered ages ago and not being used so I decided to put them on my new car to save him from being fined for not using them and – let’s be honest – it’s a wicked plate!’
