Lucy Mecklenburgh has hinted that she's dumped Ryan Thomas after posting a cryptic picture on her Instagram account
Lucy Mecklenburgh has sparked rumours she's split from Ryan Thomas.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star has only been dating the 33-year-old actor for four months after they met while filming 'Bear Grylls: Celebrity Island' together, but it looks like their relationship has come crashing down as she posted a cryptic photograph of a frog - seemingly making a dig at the hunk - on her Instagram account.
The 26-year-old beauty - who has had a number of failed high-profile relationships didn't directly mention Ryan but she appeared to imply he wasn't her prince charming.
Alongside the photo of the frog, Lucy wrote: "I seem to attract frogs."
The cryptic upload came just hours after Ryan confirmed that he'd joined the cast of the Australian soap 'Neighbours' following his exit from 'Coronation Street' last year.
He said: "I grew up watching 'Neighbours' so to get the chance to join the cast is amazing. I was on holiday with my daughter when I got a phone call from my agent asking if I'd like to play this part. I spoke to the producer and found out more - it was very different from anything I'd played before - it was quite a deep, dark story, that really interested me. It's a new challenge and I can't wait to start filming."
The dark-haired heartthrob will play Rafael Humphreys in the show but not much is known about his alter ego - except that he is an individual with a dark secret who turns up on Ramsay Street to confront a difficult chapter from his past.
Ryan - who has eight-year-old daughter Scarlett with his former partner Tina O'Brien - left the cobbled streets of Weatherfield, in which he played builder Jason Grimshaw and has desperately been trying to carve out a successful career in Hollywood.
He's set to make his debut on the Channel 5 show in early 2018.
