After weeks of rumours, it has only recently been confirmed that Lucy Mecklenburgh is dating former Corrie hunk Ryan Thomas when they both attended Wimbledon together.
But the glam ex-TOWIE star is still not giving too much away by saying it’s early days.
However, over the weekend she posted a rather intimate pic of the pair of them while they were sunning themselves in Ibiza which made it quite clear what they think about each other.
As you can see, the pair of them looked gorgeous, bronzed and incredibly loved up.
Lucy in particular looked a delight in a barely there red lace-up bikini.
No wonder Ryan’s giddy as he looks at her, the lucky love monkey.
Speaking to Fabulous magazine, however, Lucy was very cagey about their relationship.
“It’s no secret that we’ve been on holiday together and I’ve had a really lovely time. Life’s good,” she said.
“It’s really early days. If it’s OK with you, I’d like to leave it at that.”
Hmmm, so secretive.
What’s she trying to hide?
Probably nothing. She’s most likely keen now to keep her personal life private for a while.
After all, when she was on TOWIE, her relationship with Mario Falcone was played out for everyone to see.
“I was put on national television two weeks into being 19 years old,” she recalled.
“When I was hurt, it all played out on camera and it was really tough.
“I grew up and learned those horrible lessons that all girls and guys do – but on TV with millions of people judging.
“Now I want to keep more close to me. That’s how I want to do it.”
It was just last week that the pair made their first public appearance at Wimbledon.
Lucy, who split from Louis Smith last year, looked stunning in a light and airy white summer dress with a pair of gold strappy heels, while he scrubbed up beautifully in a white shirt, black tie, cream summer blazer, black trousers, and smart shoes.
Lucy even posted a snap of her holding Ryan’s hand with the caption: “Wimbledon”.
