Lucy Mecklenburgh has been in the media for all the wrong reasons.
Her boyfriend, Ryan Thomas, has been involved in one of the biggest Celebrity Big Brother storms in history after housemate Roxanne Pallett wrongly accused the former Coronation Street actor of deliberately hurting her.
In her first interview since leaving the CBB house, Roxanne apologised for her accusations, stating that she got it “completely wrong” and that Ryan’s play-fight punches were not deliberate.
Fortunately, the U.K general public rallied to Lucy and Ryan’s during the controversy, and now we can celebrate just how cute the couple are on social media.
Here is Lucy Mecklenburgh insanely relatable Instagram…

Lucy Mecklenburgh Instagram: Snacks in Bed
Lucy sent out a heartfelt message to her boyfriend on Instagram, admitting that it was incredibly hard to see him so upset.

Lucy’s Instagram read: It’s been the hardest couple of days. Watching the person u love go through hell. It’s been extremely upsetting and uncomfortable to watch. I still can’t imagine how painful this all must have been for him, I really can’t.”
In 10 days time, however, Ryan will be back in Lucy’s arms, and we really hope they pick up exactly where they left off.

May 2017 when I fell in love with @ryanthomas84 ❤️ and u can now all see why x It’s been the hardest couple of days. Watching the person u love go through hell. It’s been extremely upsetting and uncomfortable to watch. I still can’t imagine how painful this all must have been for him, I really can’t. I’m trying not to to be honest as every time I do I burst into tears and want to get into my car to drive to Elstree to get him out!! 😓💔 But finally it’s over. Thank you for all the kind supportive messages u have sent me and ryans family ❤️ P.S Karma 😏
Fighting for That Bouquet
Lucy and Ryan have been dating for just over one year, confirming their relationship in July 2017.
Ryan won over the former The Only Way is Essex star while filming Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls (new series set to air on Sunday, September 9th featuring Roxanne Pallett!).
And, while Ryan may not want to rush into things after a bitter split with his ex of six years, Lucy looks more than happy fighting over bouquets and stating her claim as next in line to get married.
Get it, girl…
Lucy Mecklenburgh Instagram: It’s Britney…
Yes, it’s not just you and your 12-year-old nephews who were deadset on seeing Britney Spears on tour.
Lucy nabbed front row seats alongside bezzie-b and former TOWIE star Lydia Bright.
Who knew Hit Me Baby One More Time would become such a running theme…
Humour at Tough Times
While Lucy has not been afraid of speaking out against Roxanne Pallett, she has also used humour to deal with the drama as it now fizzles down.
Lucy kick-started a campaign on Twitter to have Roxanne removed from the house while she more recently re-tweeted comedian Daniel O’Reilly to poke some light-hearted humour at the events.

While most z-list celebrities spend their time on Instagram making out that they are far richer than they actually are, Lucy Mecklenburgh keeps it real.
Here is she is repping a head-to-toe Primark outfit and looking like a boss along the way.

And deffo dance proof as I’m ready to bang out my best @britneyspears dance moves 😅💃🏻🕺🏽 P.S And how sexy are these shoes?! 😉 👠❤️🙌🏽 #ad
Lucy Mecklenburgh Instagram: Get the Pic
You know. We know.
Perhaps Lucy’s most relatable pic is, in fact, two separate pictures that are momentarily spaced apart.
Just like all of us, on one hand, here’s Lucy working hard in the gym and trying to carve out some abs.
On the other hand, she’s stuffing her face with ice cream and saying ‘to hell with it’.
That’s what it’s all about, Luc!
