Lucy Mecklenburgh has sent social media into a meltdown after sharing a provocative snap of herself from a hotel bathroom in Panama. And now, eagled-eye fans believe that this is the same suite which belongs to Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas. "Take it you're with @ryanthomas84 given he's in Panama also," quizzed one enquirer, while another follower added: "@ryanthomas84 You lucky guy. She's lovely."
Earlier on, Ryan - who played Jason Grimshaw in the popular ITV soap - shared various Instagram stories of the same panoramic view from the bathroom, which has fuelled speculation he is dating reality TV star Lucy. The former TOWIE beauty, 25, has flown across the Atlantic to start training for Bear Gryll's new survival show alongside a whole host of other celebrities.
It was recently reported that Lucy and Ryan quickly became close when filming for Celebrity Island started last week. A source told Daily Star: "There’s definitely a mutual attraction which is getting everyone excited. The crew are going to do everything they can to try to make it happen between them. There’s a real buzz from the producers as they reckon it’s their sexiest series to date." HELLO! Online has asked representatives for the stars to comment.
