Lucy Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas have found love on Celebrity Island 2017 with Bear Grylls.

In a preview from the latest episode, the new couple were seen getting cosy on the beach once again.

Fellow contestant Iwan Thomas observes: ”Look at these love birds.”

The pair somehow hooked up in the unlikely location while filming on the inhabited island earlier this year.

Ryan told ITV's Lorraine recently that have Lucy on the island made the experience easier for him.

“It was amazing to have Lucy there with me,” he said. “Someone of the same age, a companion. It was a real pleasure.”

Lucy told The Sun newspaper previously she wanted to keep their budding romance out of the public eye following the show.

"It’s no secret that we’ve been on holiday together and I’ve had a really lovely time. Life’s good," she said.

The former TOWIE star explained: "I was put on national television two weeks into being 19 years old.

"When I was hurt, it all played out on camera and it was really tough. I grew up and learned those horrible lessons that all girls and guys do – but on TV with millions of people judging.

"Now I want to keep more close to me. That’s how I want to do it.”

Other celebs on Celebrity Island this year are Breaking Bad actor RJ Mitte, Olympian & broadcaster Iwan Thomas, Actor & Rizzle Kicks singer Jordan Stephens and comedian Mark Watson.
