Lucy Mecklenburgh has urged fans to stop grilling her about her living arrangements with former Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas.

Lucy, who is expecting her first child with her fiancé Ryan, has opened up on Instagram in the hope of putting an end to all the questions about their living situation, saying it's 'doing her head in.'

The 28-year-old mum-to-be has also revealed their plan for after their baby boy is born.

During a question-and-answer session on her Instagram stories, the former The Only Way is Essex star says they live together in two homes in Cheshire and Essex.

After their baby arrives they plan to stay mainly in Essex to be near Lucy's mum, but they'll regularly travel back to Manchester to see Ryan's family.

Lucy says their baby, due in February, will have his essentials at both homes and they'll have to double up on some things.

She said in a video clip: “Okay, I have to answer this because this is my most asked question and it’s doing my head in.

"Me and Ryan live together, but we have two homes. We split our time between two homes and then occasionally we’re apart due to work.”

Writing below the video she said: “We live together over two homes, one Cheshire one Essex.

"I get asked this at least 10 times a day!! Not sure why everyone cares."

In a separate Instagram post Lucy continued: “Still getting 100's Qs 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 too.

"I feel very lucky to have two homes in two places that I love.

"I don't see it as an inconvenience at all.

"There are a lot worse situations to be in. Pleaseee stop asking now."
