In the latest celebrity-possibly-cosying-up-with-another-celebrity gossip, former TOWIE person Lucy Mecklenburgh has been linked to former Coronation Street person Ryan Thomas.

The pair are reportedly filming in Panama for Bear Grylls' new series alongside eight other celebs, and if reports are to be believed, they've found comfort in each other...

An alleged source told the Daily Star that the programme's producers are doing "everything they can" to encourage the pair's "mutual attraction"... so make of that what you will.

Digital Spy has reached out to representatives for Lucy and Ryan for comment.

Meanwhile, The Island with Bear Grylls has seriously upset viewers after they watched current participant Jane Gates 'bully' cameraman Phil Coates by trying to turn the other contestants against him before eventually getting him booted off the show.

Some found the tense scenes so "uncomfortable" to watch that they have decided to boycott the Channel 4 series all together, not only for allowing such behaviour but for then choosing to air it on national TV.

"Put me off watching #TheIsland what a bunch of nasty people full of double standards @BearGrylls," one fan wrote on Twitter.

Another shared: "Not sure I'll be watching the rest of this series, no interest in seeing how bullies and bystanders survive in the wild #TheIsland."
