After a series of games, Ryan finished in first place – much to the delight of his fiancée! "My champion [heart emoji]," gushed Lucy.

The couple have been dating since meeting on Bear Grylls' Celebrity Island in 2017, and they welcomed son Roman in March 2020. The Games star popped the question during a trip to Italy in 2019, but the couple were forced to postpone their wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In an exclusive photoshoot and interview in HELLO! Magazine, the 30-year-old confirmed they are expecting a baby daughter. "Our baby girl is due in late spring - we can't wait," she said in February.

"I had an inkling that I was having a girl, but I was a bit more unsure than with Roman. With him I just knew - I don't know why but even before we found out, I said: 'I know, one hundred per cent, it's a boy.'"
