They’ve become one of our fave celeb couples so we were gutted this week when it was reported that Lucy Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas might have called it quits.

The couple – who found love when they both took part in Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls early last year – were hit by claims of a break-up, apparently because of an ‘explosive row’ earlier this week.

However, it’s now been claimed that they’re already back together following a 72-hour break-up, which apparently happened because Lucy was annoyed at Ryan allegedly being spotted with a woman on a night out in Manchester.

According to The Sun the pair met up on Thursday to discuss things after Lucy was initially too upset to talk to Ryan even though he’d strongly denied doing anything wrong.

‘Two days ago it looked like there was no way back. Lucy was furious and wouldn’t listen to anything Ryan was telling her,’ a source claims. ‘But at the end of the day there is a lot of feeling there and it would be such a waste to chuck it away over some idle gossip.

‘There’s a long way to go before they’ll be back to how they were, but they are going to give it another go and really work on things.’

Reports of the couple’s split proved particularly surprising given that Lucy, 26, posted a loved-up photo with Ryan just a few days ago as they celebrated his 34th birthday at Parklife musical festival.

‘Happy birthday my ❤,’ the former TOWIE star captioned a cute snap of them kissing.

Meanwhile Ryan seemed to suggest the split rumours weren’t true when he shared a picture of Lucy and their pal Brooke Vincent via Instagram Stories on Wednesday night – just hours before the gossip emerged – and hinted at them making plans for the future.

‘Can’t wait for the next adventure with these two lunatics!’ the actor wrote.

Let’s hope all is well between Ryan and Lucy, then!

The lovebirds have seemed very happy together in recent months and often posted cute photos on social media of their time together.

In February they even jetted off on holiday with Ryan’s young daughter Scarlett, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Tina O’Brien, as well as members of Lucy’s family.
