Lucy Mecklenburgh Confirms Relationship With Ryan Thomas

We are SO happy for these two!

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Lucy Mecklenburgh met Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas when they both appeared on Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls, which is currently being shown on Channel 4.

Since returning from the island, the pair have been snapped together at various social events over the summer but have yet to confirm any romance.

Until now…

Taking to Instagram to share gorgeous snaps at a friend’s wedding, both Lucy and Ryan posted group shots of some of the wedding party – including Ryan’s famous brothers Adam and Scott.

But Lucy kicked things up a notch when she posted a romantic (and SO beautiful) photo of herself and Ryan, writing: ‘With my favourite 💛’

Lucy also proved that she was settling in with the family very well as she uploaded some stunning snaps of her and Caroline Thomas – wife of Ryan’s brother Adam who starred in Emmerdale and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

In fact, Lucy actually posted pics with the WHOLE Thomas family, including Ryan’s mum and brother Scott – who found fame on Love Island last year.
