Lucy Mecklenburgh is preparing to welcome Ryan Thomas home from the Celebrity Big Brother house.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star, 27, has decorated her home ready for her boyfriend’s homecoming.
Ryan, 34, will compete in Monday night’s Celebrity Big Brother final alongside fellow stars including Cheers actress Kirstie Alley and Love Island’s Gabby Allen.
Doting girlfriend Lucy has taken to Instagram to show how preparations are underway for Ryan’s return after his three and a half week stint inside the Borehamwood mansion.
Posting to her story, the fitness guru shared with her 1.3million fans a video of two balloons, one which reads: “My winner!!!! Welcome home xx,” and another that says: “Welcome home Ryan.”
The camera then pans to a light box which has been branded: “Missed You So Much.”
Two more light boxes, which sit in between bottles of alcohol, read: “Welcome Home Baby,” and “My Winner!” respectively.
Lucy has been vocal with her support for Ryan during his time in the Celebrity Big Brother house, particularly when he found himself in the middle of a punch row.
Ryan’s former housemate Roxanne Pallett accused him of repeatedly punching her in the ribs.
Lucy took to Victoria Derbyshire’s BBC Two show to reveal how Ryan’s ordeal was “hard to watch”, adding that “he wouldn’t hurt a fly.”
When asked by Victoria if should she apologise, Lucy replied: “Yes she should! I think she needs apologise publicly to Ryan and really mean it and I do think she needs to get some help.
“She needs to apologise for defamation of character, it was a complete lie! She play fights with Ben [Jardine] every single day, playing and laughing around. I’m not even sure his hand even touched her.”
