This is Lucy's first birthday since getting engaged to Ryan, who starred in Coronation Street from 2000 to 2016.

Ryan popped the question in June after whisking Lucy off to the Amalfi Coast for a surprise holiday.

The couple announced their happy news by sharing a gorgeous photograph of themselves posing in front of the night skyline while on their break.

Lucy was wearing the giant sparkling ring Ryan had given to her and wrote on Instagram: "I said YES."

[Lucy and I will] have a massive wedding.

The couple are yet to announce their wedding date but Ryan already has their big day planned out in his mind.

Long before he even proposed to Lucy, the star said in an interview that he wanted his nuptials to be even bigger than his brother Adam's!

Emmerdale star Adam tied the knot with his wife Caroline, who is now a very close friend of Lucy, in 2014.

"[Lucy and I will] have a massive wedding. It would be huge and one big party. It would be bigger than my brother Adam's!" he told OK! magazine.
