Lucy Mecklenburgh told fans how she and fiancé Ryan Thomas have two homes and described how they split their time between Essex and Manchester in an Q&A on Instagram on Saturday.

The mum-to-be, 28, appeared slightly agitated as she finally addressed the burning question about where the couple will live with their baby when it arrives in the New Year.

The former TOWIE bombshell filmed herself as she explained the complication situation and labelled it as her "most asked question", before complaining that it is "doing my head in."

She told her 1.5 million Instagram followers: "Me and Ryan live together but we have two homes. So we split our time between two homes and occasionally we are apart due to work."

Lucy then shared another post to her Instagram story with a lengthy explanation as she continued to get bombarded with questions about which town her and fiancé Ryan, 35, would reside in with their new arrival.

She appeared annoyed with the constant questions as she seemed to feel forced to divulge more information about their living plans.

The Essex babe wrote: "Still getting 100's Q's asking about our living situ.

"So when bubba is here we will mainly be at mine I want to be near my mum etc but we will of course travel back to Manchester to see Ryan's family a lot to."

The star then revealed they have had to "double up on a few things" as they prepare to welcome their first child together so the baby "will have all his essentials in Manchester as well."

With a subtle dig to trolls who have slammed her decision, Lucy continued: "I feel very lucky to have 2 homes in 2 places that I love.

"I don't see it as an inconvenience at all. There's a lot worse situations to be in. Pleaseee stop asking now.

This is Lucy's first baby but Corrie star Ryan's second as he also shares 11-year-old Scarlett with his ex Tina O'Brien.

The pair got engaged in June this year, during a romantic getaway to Italy, and two months later Lucy announced she was expecting their first child together.

They had fans scratching their heads recently after hinting that they wouldn't be living together when the baby arrived.

"We will always have 2 homes," Lucy penned, "And both love Essex & Cheshire. I don't see it as a problem I actually think we are extremely lucky to have 2 homes."
