It comes just days after Lucy, 26, posted a snap of the pair snogging at the Parklife music festival in Manchester while celebrating Ryan’s 34th birthday.
Lucy seemed loved-up, including a heart emoji on the Instagram picture.
Pals are said to be stunned by the break-up as they expected ex-Towie star Lucy and Ryan, who recently appeared in the Australian soap opera Neighbours, to go the distance.
A source revealed: “Ryan and Lucy have been a really lovely couple and things had been great between them.
