Ryan Thomas shares Lucy Mecklenburgh’s due date – which might make him quit new show
Ryan Thomas has spoken out on how close his fiancée Lucy Mecklenburgh is to welcoming their second child together.
The 37 year old, who also shares son Roman with the former TOWIE star, appeared on ITV's This Morning to speak to hosts Phillip Schofield, 60, and Rochelle Humes, 33, about the new BBC show The Games when he opened up about the upcoming birth of his daughter.
The Games is set to air this evening, Monday 9 May, with Holly Willoughby hosting the programme that will see celebrities pitted against each other in a series of sports challenges.
After noticing that Ryan appeared to look down at his watch a few times, Phillip couldn't help but point it out and pose the question everyone was wondering.
He said: "There's extra pressure really because I just saw you have a look at your watch there, I'm assuming that is not just a watch.
"Are you looking at messages from home? Because how close is Lucy actually to giving birth?"
The former Coronation Street star, who wore a black T-shirt, shades and a backwards cap, paused before sharing: "Like, this week close," as Phillip replied: "No way!"
Ryan, whose other half recently gave a glimpse into their unborn child's very organised nursery, continued: "She sent me a picture this morning and I can't tell you how low this baby looks. If this little girl comes this week, I am out of the show.
"So fingers crossed I get to the end of it, I can finish and complete it and move on to the next chapter of our lives."
Rochelle then chimed in to say: "Meanwhile Lucy's saying, 'Please bring this baby on!'" as Ryan continued: "Yeah, how selfish of me!" as he laughed.

He then added: "She's hopefully going to be here on Friday and if she goes into labour on Friday then that's great because I'll be here with her."
Meanwhile, Lucy, 30, took to her Instagram stories to post herself watching the segment of the ITV show. When Ryan made a remark hoping that the baby comes after The Games, Lucy couldn't help but laugh.
Cradling her blossoming baby bump, she said: "Gotta stay in a week!"
