Reality star Lucy Mecklenburgh took to social media yesterday to voice her feelings on her split from Olympic gymnast, Louis Smith. 

"Everything happens for a reason," read the message after it was revealed that the Essex stunner had ended her 14-month romance with the 26-year-old. 

According the Sun, the pair are said to have been drifting apart as Louis trains for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. 

While the athlete is very much career focused, it has been reported that the 24-year-old of The Only Way is Essex Fame is looking to settle down and start a family. 

"Lucy wanted things that Louis just wasn’t ready to commit to. In the end Lucy wasn’t prepared to wait," said a source. 

"Louis really had led Lucy on in that they’d discussed marriage and kids at length – it came like a bolt out of the blue and doesn’t really make any sense to her."


The couple had met on a BBC gymnastics show late in 2014. 

The pretty pair had spent the festive period in Thailand as they celebrated their one year anniversary in December. 


TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh became the envy of women everywhere last week when her gymnast boyfriend Louis Smith posted a picture of the pair flashing their perfectly toned bums for the camera.

The photo was taken after last week's BAFTA Awards and appeared on Louis' Instagram page soon after with the caption, "Who has the better derrière? Me or @lucymeck1 haha #battleofthebutts."

Now, Lucy has revealed her boyfriend posted it without her permission, giving her a bit of a shock when she checked her notifications the next morning.

"We took the photo after the BAFTAs in the hotel," she told Mirror Celeb this week, adding that it was meant to be just a bit of private fun between the couple, who have been dating since December 2014.

"We'd just got back and we'd had a couple of drinks and we were just messing around. I didn't know he was going to post it the next day. But he's quite like that" she admitted.

Lucy seems to have seen the funny side by now, as the photo still appears on Louis' feed, with over 5,000 likes and counting. However the reality star said she was far from happy at first.

"Louis got in trouble for that. By both of us, " she said, pointing to her agent who stood beside her.

Whatever about a cheeky bum selfie, Lucy says she has plans for bigger and better revenge on her man. "I'm going to get him back though, don't worry, I'm working on it," she revealed.

Hmmm… we wonder what could top that!



We wonder what goes through a celebrity’s mind before they post a dodgy tweet, full in the knowledge that the entire world is looking on.

It’s safe to say that Olympic medallist Louis Smith wasn’t quite thinking things through when he sent a tweet comparing his mobile phone signal to ISIS.

In a since deleted tweet, the 26-year-old gymnast – who is dating former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh – wrote: “My Vodafone signal is worse than ISIS. I can’t even have a conversation with my girlfriend.”

Oh dear! The tweet is now nowhere to be found, and Louis has not addressed the awkward incident on his social media accounts.

Louis had mentioned earlier in the day that he was in London to celebrate a birthday ‘surprise’ with girlfriend Lucy, so perhaps his mind was preoccupied!

Louis and Lucy have been dating for around five months now, and recently opened up on their relationship in an interview with Hello! magazine.

“I trust Louis completely and I don’t think I’ve ever felt that way before. His mum even said to me on New Year’s Eve, Louis would never cheat on you. He would never hurt you,” gushed Lucy.



Lucy Mecklenburgh is in for a romantic Christmas, as it has been reported that she is dating Tumble judge and Olympic gymnast Louis Smith!

Though claims they were dating were denied during the TV show, it seems things have heated up since then, and sources say the pair are “moving pretty fast”.

The Sun reports that that Lucy and Louis were not dating during the show but bumped into one another not long after: “It’s true they were flirting, but nothing happened. In fact, Lucy went as far as to say he was too short … Louis got with someone straight after Tumble, but they split and he bumped into Lucy. She must have forgotten his size because sparks flew and they started dating.”

Aww, how sweet! Lucy was linked to Gethin Jones in recent months, though they are thought to have only gone on a few dates before calling it quits.



Olympian and Strictly Come Dancing star Louis Smith has gotten us all a little hot under the collar with his naked selfie!

The gymnast was clearly enjoying some free time yesterday afternoon, and decided to make the most of the sunshine.

The sportsman made himself an ice cold drink before whipping off his clothes!

Posting the image online, he tweeted,  “Naked sunbathing #nosyneighboursbeware.”

Louis, who competed in the London 2012 Olympics, has been hard at work in the gym lately and recently kept fans up to date with his fitness progress.

Last week, he wrote, “Just dropped under 80kg today for the first time since August 2012.”

Keep up the good work Louis, and erm…keep the pictures coming!
