Inside Lucy Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas’s new family home – as he buys house without her even seeing it

'BRAVE MAN'

LUCY Mecklenburgh has given fans a glimpse inside the new family home Ryan Thomas bought for her without her even seeing it.

The fitness enthusiast called her fiancé a brave man after he purchased the house on their behalf.

She wrote: "New house, new project, new memories to be made 💛🏡 @ryanthomas84 bought our new Manchester home without me viewing it 🤦🏽‍♀️ he is a very brave man hahahah!!!

"I’ll be posting the full renovation process on @lucymeckinteriors 🙌💛."

The couple explored the new pad today along with Ryan's daughter Scarlett.

And while it needs a lot of TLC, Lucy was thrilled with the project in front of them.

The spacious home has a huge basement with lots of potential, while the rooms are effectively blank canvases for their creative juices to flow.

Large bedrooms come complete with built-in wardrobes and chandeliers, while both the bathroom and kitchen are light and airy.

The couple already have a few little home touches including a framed "new home, new adventures' message and a 'home sweet home' front door mat.

Lucy shared some of her plans, writing: "We are planning to start by ripping out all the built in wardrobes...

"New carpets and painting, But living in it like that before we decide on any big changes like extensions, loft conversions, new kitchen, knocking through walls etc.

"I think it's helpful to live in the house to get a feel for it & then make a plan of action!

"I didn't with mine and not having a utility room is my biggest regret."

The buy is a bold move as the pair spent £100,000 doing up their current house.

The Essex "mini mansion" boasts a marble bathroom, modern extended kitchen and a room for her designer shoe collection.
