Lucy used exercise as heartbreak healer
Lucy Mecklenburgh turned to exercise to help her get over her split from Louis Smith earlier this year
Lucy Mecklenburgh used exercise to get over Louis Smith.
The former 'Only Way is Essex' star was left devastated when the gymnast ended their year-long relationship in January but has found working out with her personal trainer to be great "therapy" to help her through the days when she's feeling low.
She said: "Exercise has been a bit like therapy for me. It makes me feel great and it has helped me through the low points. I am training five times a week at the moment. It's a great way for working stuff out, I have a little rant with my personal trainer followed by a girly chat. It gives me the positive mindset I need for the rest of the day."
And the 24-year-old beauty is enjoying being able to spend more time with her friends.
She told HELLO! magazine: "When you become single, everyone is free for dinner and they are messaging you every day to check you are OK.
"I have a small group of friends but I love them all and it has been nice to see them all a bit more. I am also looking forward to going on a girly holiday this summer."
