Who is Lucy Mecklenburgh? Ryan Thomas' girlfriend, former Towie cast member and Celebrity Island 2017 star

She battled it out in Bear Grylls' gritty outdoor TV series and came home with a new boyfriend in the shape of Ryan Thomas. But what else has she been up to? Here's the lowdown…

Who is Lucy Mecklenburgh?

The stunning brunette is a TV actress and entrepreneur.

She was born on August 24, 1991, in London and is aged 27.

Lucy has two sisters, Lydia and Christie, and takes charge of the family-run business Lucy's Boutique – an Essex-based retailer which specialises in dazzling prom dresses.

She found national fame thanks to her role on ITVBe reality show The Only Way Is Essex, in 2010, before following up with reality TV shows Tour De Celeb and BBC show Tumble.

She was also on Celebrity Island 2017.

What is Lucy Mecklenburgh famous for?

Lucy proved to be a fan favourite on Towie and dated show hunk Mark Wright during her first scenes.

She stayed on the series for three years, but quit after her fitness brand, Results With Lucy, rocketed in popularity.

Last year, Lucy exclusively told The Sun Online how her stint on the show had taken its toll on her body.

She said: "At the beginning, I was always quite slim so I never really worried.

"The lifestyle that came with Towie was drinking throughout the week so we would be filming night events on a Monday night and we would be drinking, and we'd all be working until really late.

"It would mean doing it again the next day and I got into this really bad routine of drinking a bit too much, the food you'd have on set would be snack bags of crisps and sweets and get pizza at midnight to keep us all going."

She also juggles her fitness regime with modelling duties for online retailer V By Very and an ambassador role for sportswear brand Ellesse.

Who is Lucy Mecklenburgh dating?

During her time on Towie, fans witnessed Lucy fall in love with Mark and, afterwards, embark on a high-profile relationship with Mario Falcone.

After calling time on Essex life, she dated Olympian gymnast Louis Smith, who she met when competing on BBC reality show Tumble.

Yet, after he dumped her for apparently being "too attached" to him, she found love with former Corrie star Ryan Thomas after meeting him while filming for The Island.
