The photo shows the two of them beaming at each other as they stand on a veranda, with the Amalfi Coast behind them.

Fans and friends rushed to congratulate the pair on their happy news.

The 27-year-old took to Instagram Stories later on to share an up-close look at her ring – and it is seriously stunning.

It comes as many fans were convinced the former Corrie actor would be popping the question, after whisking Lucy away on a surprise Italian holiday.

Lucy revealed earlier this week that he had planned her “dream holiday,” and that she had wanted to see the Amalfi Coast for awhile.

In a gushing post, she said:

“Well it’s safe to say @ryanthomas84 has planned my dream holiday! I’ve wanted to come to the Amalfi Coast for years and so far it’s even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined!!

“Our first stop is this stunning villa in Ravello. I’m not sure he can beat this place but I’m excited to see where the next surprise location is!!!”

The pair first met when they took part in Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls in 2017, before going public with their relationship a few months later.

Ryan previously dated his ex-Coronation Street co star, Tina O’Brien. The pair share a 10-year-old daughter, Scarlett.
