After it emerged yesterday that a fit couple of the moment Lucy Mecklenburgh and Louis Smith had split, we aren’t ashamed to admit that we were borderline sobbing at our desks.
Last night, former TOWIE star Lucy broke her silence via Instagram of all places, and by gum it’s hit us right in the feels.
The fitness junkie shared a quote, ‘Everything Happens For A Reason’ – which to be fair is very much words to live by.
And today, she’s shared another pic – and it looks like she’s keeping herself busy. Pictured in her car, she wrote: 'Training done. Time to get ready for work in @lucysboutique_ lots of prom appointments today, coffee needed!’
A spokesperson for the former TOWIE star confirmed to Yahoo that the pair have gone their separate ways but didn’t wish to comment further.
Lucy, 24, and Olympian Louis, 26, met on BBC One reality TV show Tumble in August 2014 when she was a contestant and he was a judge.
But they decided to call time on their relationship following a romantic break to Thailand over the new year.
Lucy, who attended the InStyle EE Rising Star party in London alone last night, posted a picture on New Year’s Eve of the pair on a Thai beach together.
According to The Sun, the pair split over their differing plans for the future.
A source told the publication: “Lucy and Louis wanted different things.
“They really hoped their holiday would bring them back together but if anything it just made things worse.
“Lucy wanted things that Louis just wasn’t ready to commit to. In the end Lucy wasn’t prepared to wait.
“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.”
Yahoo have also contacted Louis’ rep for comment.
