Lucy has been having a long-distance romance with her boyfriend Ryan, after he relocated to Australia for a part in iconic soap Neighbours.

Lucy and Ryan's long-distance romance has seen the brunette beauty enjoy an extended break Down Under to support her beau, with the couple also jetting off on a sunshine break to Dubai recently.

It was claimed earlier this month, Ryan had reportedly purchased an expensive diamond ring for Lucy, with a source telling The Sun that Ryan spent thousands on the ring to show his commitment to Lucy as their romance heats up.

MailOnline contacted representatives for Ryan and Lucy.

The couple first met on Bear Grylls' Celebrity Island, where they were in the midst of water shortages, extreme hunger and tropical storms. 

After developing a strong bond on the survival show, the pair continued their romance on home turf.

They first set tongues wagging when they were seen sharing holiday photographs from the same location on Instagram, despite denying claims they were dating.

They were later pictured kissing at London City Airport, and marked their first public outing as a couple at the Wimbledon men's semi-finals earlier in July.

Lucy was even seen spending New Year's Eve with Ryan and his family, and was introduced to his eight-year-old daughter Scarlet, whom he shares with former flame Tina O'Brien, earlier this year. 

Ryan made his long-awaited Neighbours debut in an hour-long late-night special episode as English tourist Rafael Humphreys, a loner with dark secrets and a score to settle.

Recently fans showered Ryan with praise after his portrayal of a 'raw and heartfelt' gay sex scene on Neighbours.

The actor's character Rafael was seen enjoying an emotional tryst with David, played by Takaya Honda – which fans branded both 'beautiful' and 'refreshing' on Twitter.
