Despite not sharing a snap of them altogether Ryan and Lucy both shared similar photos of their day out with Scarlett, eight.

The trio enjoyed a day out at Backyard Cinema – a movie theatre in London – to watch comedy film Mrs Doubtfire on Sunday.

Ryan, who played Jason Grimshaw in the ITV soap, first shared a snap of Scarlett, who he shares with ex Tina O’Brien, posing next to a sign which read: “Now showing Mrs Doubtfire. Last entry 12:00.

He captioned the shot: “How did you spend your Sunday? 🍿 #robinwilliamslegend.”

Lucy, 26, later shared a snap from the exact same spot just minus Scarlett.

She wrote: “It has to be in my top 5! Robin Williams is just an absolute legend! What a talented man 💛 .”

Back in July Lucy and Ryan were spotted at Wimbledon tennis championships together and Lucy seemed to finally confirm her relationship with Ryan as she posted a super-sweet picture of her holding hands with her beau on Instagram.

Before that the couple were papped at Mykonos airport after enjoying a romantic break away together.

At the start of this month Lucy attended an Indian-style wedding after being invited by Ryan.

The actor’s famous brothers, Adam and Scott Thomas, also attended the ceremony.

Lucy posted a photo from the day of her and Ryan looking very loved-up inside a very lavish venue.

Lucy simply captioned the post: “With my favourite 💛.”

Awww, you guys!

Despite keeping their romance private over the last few months the two were seen kissing for the first time on Celebrity Island as it returned to our screens recently.

During the show fellow contestant Iwan Thomas shouted: “Look at those lovebirds!”

Ryan can then be seen flashing his bum while Lucy is spotted walking out of the sea looking stunning in a black bikini before they share a steamy kiss on the beach.

Comedian Mark Watson said: “Imagine if they had a baby – the bum on that – in a non dodgy way. That came out wrong.”

The camera then showed Ryan and Lucy share a kiss while lying on the sand.

Earlier this month Ryan appeared on ITV’s Lorraine where he spoke about Lucy for the first time.

“It was amazing. To have Lucy – who’s a similar age, a companion and someone to look out for you – was a real pleasure,” he said.

Speaking about his overall experience on the show Ryan added: “The worst is for the first week we didn’t eat for eight days, so that was difficult.

“We eventually got water, the storms were relentless, you didn’t know when they were going to start or finish. We lost something like two stone.”
