Lucy Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas have been together since last summer
Lucy and Ryan went public with their romance in July, having grown close while filming Channel 4's Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls in April. However, since Ryan joined Australian soap Neighbours last year, the pair have been spending more time apart. The 33-year-old landed a role on the popular Melbourne-based soap in October, where he will star as Rafael Humphreys, who has been described as a "loner with dark secrets". Shortly after the announcement, Lucy fuelled rumours of a split when she posted a cryptic message on her Instagram account. 26-year-old Lucy shared a photo of a frog, which she captioned: "I seem to attract Frogs/toads."
