Ryan Thomas shares first couple photo with girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh

They have been enjoying a break away in sunny Ibiza

Soap hunk Ryan Thomas has shared the first couple photo of him and reality star girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh.

The couple, who went public back in July, have been enjoying a relaxing break away in Ibiza at a gorgeous luxury resort, Hacienda Na Xamena, on the island.

But up until now, Ryan has only shared images of him and his girlfriend in group situations.

Ryan, 33, shared a photo of him and Lucy, 26, in a private pool as they overlooked the scenic views.

Fans rushed to comment on the photo with one saying: “Beautiful couple.”

“Beautiful place for a wonderful couple,” another gushed.

A third commented: “You two look amazing together.”

Earlier this week Lucy also shared a photo from their romantic trip.

The former TOWIE star flaunted her incredible figure in a deep plunge swimsuit as she posed in the same pool.

She wrote: “It’s been a tough day.”

Lucy met Ryan back in April as they both starred on Bear Gryll’s Channel 4 show Celebrity Island.

The pair have kept their romance under wraps but Lucy sent fans crazy after uploading their first photo together on social media in July.

She posted a rather intimate pic of them while they were sunning themselves in Ibiza which made it quite clear what they think about each other.

Lucy looked stunning in a barely there red lace-up bikini.

Meanwhile Ryan can be seen gazing at her with the biggest grin on his face.

More recently fans have watched the pair’s relationship blossom during their time on Celebrity Island.

The show saw several famous faces test their survival skills as they tried to fend for themselves on an island in the Pacific.

The two were even spotted sharing their first kiss on screen.

Ryan was seen flashing his bum while Lucy walked out of the sea looking incredible in a black bikini before they shared a steamy kiss on the sand.

Since being off the island and back to reality the couple’s romance has been going from strength to strength with Lucy even spending time with the apple of Ryan’s eye, his daughter Scarlett.

Lucy joined her beau and eight-year-old Scarlett for a family day out in London last month.

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

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

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

These two are definitely getting serious!
