Lucy's admitted she was nervous on Saturday night's Tumble.

Despite undergoing some pretty grueling training that left her covered in bruises, the ex-reality star found herself at the bottom of the leaderboard after her opening performance.

But, remaining upbeat, she's told fans: "First show. Nerves got the better of me but I still had a great time! Bring on the next week and aerial hoop."

She added the hashtag: "Only way is up."

While the judges didn't rate Lucy's performance too highly, her Instagram fans were quick to assure her they'd loved watching her perform.

"I thought it was a great performance and I can't wait to see you this week," said one. Another added: "You were so good you should have got a higher score."

Other stars competing on Tumble include Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding, former Sugababe Amelle Berrabah and EastEnders actor John Partridge.
