Former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh has announced she is pregnant with her second child.

She already has a 20-month year old son called Roman with her actor partner Ryan Thomas, and now has a second on the way.

Posting a photo on Instagram showing her cradling her baby bump while her son looks at his own bare stomach, Mecklenburgh wrote: “Here we go again.”

A number of famous faces congratulated Mecklenburgh on the pregnancy.

Actress Catherine Tyldesley commented: "Huge congratulations my loves!".

Hollyoaks actress Nikki Sanderson wrote: "Amazing! Congratulations".

Even the George at Asda account commented their congratulations.

Mecklenburgh was one of the founding members of the TOWIE cast when it first started in 2010.

She stayed on the programme for three years, leaving after the 10th series.

Following that she met Thomas in 2017 after meeting on Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls.

Thomas, who played Jason Grimshaw in Coronation Street from 2000 until 2016, proposed during a holiday in Italy in June 2019.

In September, Mecklenburgh revealed their son had been treated in hospital after they found him “blue” in his cot.

The TV star thanked the ambulance service for its swift response and shared her thanks to Basildon hospital, St Mary’s London paediatric intensive care unit and the Cosmic charity, which cares for babies and young children in intensive care.

She later said Roman was home from intensive care and “back to his cheeky self”, but added that she and Thomas “may never fully recover”.
