Ryan Thomas admits he’s jealous

Ryan spoke candidly about the couple’s relationship on his Mancs On The Mic podcast.

He said: “She’s obsessed with Roman and it’s amazing. But then sometimes she’ll kiss and cuddle him and go: ‘I love you so much, give me a snog,’ and I go: ‘What about me?’

“Sometimes it’s very difficult for me to adapt to someone that’s not as warm and affection as I am, we can’t all be huggy, kissy, lovey people.”

Lucy also gave her take the matter.

“I think we had added pressure in our relationship as a new family, we had a baby in lockdown and we never got any time as a couple.

Sometimes she’ll kiss and cuddle him and go: ‘I love you so much, give me a snog,’ and I go: ‘What about me?’

“And I think that has a negative effect on our relationship if we look back,” she admitted.

Lucy accepted that they do need to make more time for each other and go on date nights.

She then pointed out the couple could jump on a plane to Ibiza when they wanted before they were parents.

To this Ryan joked: “I just go on my own now.”
