Ryan Thomas and Lucy Mecklenburgh relationship in pics amid CBB win

LOVED-UP Lucy Mecklenburgh has stood by her beau amid all the Celebrity Big Brother controversy – here we take a look back at their relationship in pictures.

The Celebrity Big Brother final 2018 came to a staggering end last night and we were all elated that former Coronation Street hunk Ryan Thomas took away this year’s crown.

Celebrity Big Brother always brings some explosive gossip each year – with last year’s steamy romance between Sarah Harding and Chad Johnson headlining the show – and this season was equally as compelling.

You would have to have been hidden under a rock somewhere to have missed the scandalous incident that broke out between Ryan Thomas and Roxanne Pallett.

Roxanne accused Ryan of punching her in a play fight that got out of hand, leading to him being presented with a formal warning.

It is safe to say the general public backed the Manchester-born lad all the way, after which Miss Pallett suffered a lot of abuse from a raging UK.

The viewers were not the only ones who showed their full support as soon claims emerged that Roxy had wrongly accused many people Ryan, and all the while his girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh fought for his named to be cleared.

Lucy claimed her apology on The Jeremy Vine show was a performance and that she needed help for her problems.

Helplessly watching the show as it all unfolded, Miss Mecklenburgh expressed to OK! magazine: “A lot of people wouldn’t forgive her but Ryan handled himself with grace – It’s made me love him more.”

Getting sentimental, she said: “Seeing the way he handled himself in the house actually made me fall in love all over again.”

Throughout his time in the house, the former TOWIE star has been constantly posting her support and love on social media.

Uploading a cute picture of them enjoying a duvet day with snacks aplenty, the 27-year-old captioned the image: “May 2017 when I fell in love with @ryanthomas84 and you can now all see why.”

In another shot the couple are seen sharing a romantic smooch, alongside the caption: “The kindest person I know.”

Ahead of the final the brunette bombshell couldn’t wait to have her partner in crime back in her arms, posting a loving pic of them on holiday with the words: “Counting down the minutes until I get reunited with my world. If you think @ryanthomas deserves to win CBB here’s the number to vote.”

It didn’t take long for her 1.4m followers to share their thoughts, with one instantly replying: “Voted, he definitely deserves to win.”

Another quipped: “Ryan to win! Been great from day one, genuine guy, great laugh, he has got my vote.”

Lucy glowed last night as she proudly cheered on her hot boyfriend during the live final, before he paid tribute to her in his final interview with Emma Willis.

Speaking from the heart, he gushed: “I am lucky to have the best girlfriend, the best family. My brothers have been keeping me light. Adam and Scott, you have no idea how much you mean to me.”

The pair met during another reality TV adventure on Bear Gryll’s Celebrity Island in 2017, although they kept the whole thing on the down-low until July.

Shortly after the show the hunger-striken duo showed off their dramatic body transformation in a mirror selfie, and celebrating their one-year anniversary Lucy poured out: “One year ago today we completed the hardest mental and physical challenge of our lives. An entire month on a deserted island.”

Suffering the accusations in the Big Brother house must have been a breeze after that.

Since then they have shared many a loved-up selfie on Instagram, flaunting their sexy bodies in warmer climes.

One post revealed the couple looking deeply into each other’s eyes, sharing: “Throwback to the place we love the most! #greekislands.”

They seemed to have gotten serious during their time together, with Lucy meeting Ryan’s world – his little girl Scarlett – and there has even been talk of marriage. Could there be an engagement looming now he has left the house?

In an interview with OK! Magazine, Ryan said: “We’ll have a massive wedding. It would be huge and one big party.”

Opening up about his feelings, Ryan quipped: “I’m a softie and I wouldn’t have her around my daughter unless I knew she was going to be around her a very long time. I said the love word straight away.”
