Lucy Mecklenburgh has shocked fans by sharing a photo of herself and boyfriend Ryan Thomas after they completed Celebrity Island in 2017. The former TOWIE star marked the anniversary of them finishing the ITV survival show by showing off her two-stone weight loss, and admitting they had pushed their "bodies & minds to the absolute limit".

The photo showed Lucy standing in a bikini next to her boyfriend in a bathroom, with their arms wrapped around each other. The pair both looked noticeably slimmer, with Lucy's tiny waist and ribs on display.

"I never thought it was possible but I'm proud to this day of us all!!!! #beargrylls #theisland. PS. It took me 3 weeks to put 2 stone back on!!"
