The former TOWIE star has sparked engagement rumours with her latest Insta pic - but it's not what you think...

Former TOWIE star, Lucy Mecklenburgh hasn’t exactly had an easy road to love.

First she found herself tangled in a rather messy Mark Wright/ Lauren Goodger triangle and then there was her VERY turbulent relationship with ex-fiancé and resident Essex ladies man, Mario Falcone.

Remember that?

Anyway, since breaking up with long term boyfriend Louis Smith last year, fitness guru Lucy is rumoured to be pretty loved-up with her new Essex beau, Nathan Sharp.

But considering the couple have only been dating a few months, fans were left very confused when the reality star shared a pic of her posing in a wedding dress on Monday evening (3rd April).

Lucy looks stunning in the black and white photo which features a gorgeous gown with an embroidered bodice, as she captioned the shot: ‘Head to the link in my bio to find out why I’m wearing this insane @zuhairmuradofficial dress from @theweddingclub1 #wedding #slimdownforthegown #fitness #fitbride #motivation #workout.’

Obviously the star’s wedding snap sparked a few questions from her 1.1m followers asking whether she was already planning to tie the knot with her lucky boyfriend, Nathan.

One excited follower commented: ‘Are you engaged ahhhhh??? @lucymeck1’, while another joked: ‘Hey @lucymeck1 I haven’t asked you yet lol xx’.

However it looks like there’s a simple explanation for the picture, which doesn’t involve an upcoming wedding for Luce. AW!

In fact, the 25-year-old was promoting her latest Results With Lucy series which helps brides-to-be get in shape for their big day.

In a message posted on her website, Lucy explained: ‘I’m so, so happy to say that we’re now able to help Bride to Be’s with their goals to get fitter, healthier and combat stress on the run up to their big day! Yay!

‘Okay, I know… I’m not getting married, but I just couldn’t help myself…

Before adding: ‘Can’t blame a girl for trying on a pretty Wedding Dress when she’s got the chance, can you?? How beautiful is this dress!?’

We don’t blame you at all, Luce!

Despite the false alarm, the reality beauty has remained pretty tight lipped about her blossoming romance and a friend close to the star recently revealed she’s keen to keep him out of the spotlight.

A source told The Sunday People: ‘Lucy has played out her previous relationships in public and they haven’t worked out so she’s keen to keep this one under wraps.’

Well, looking at the Essex beauty in this stunning gown, we’re sure Nathan is going to want to take Lucy up the aisle ASAP!
