Former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh was a walking advert for 'no pain, no gain' as she showed off her Tumble bruises this morning.

Lucy's already proved she sure does bruise easily thanks to her strict training regime and today proved no different for the Essex beauty as she has been working hard for her next live performance on Saturday.

Showing off her bruising in all its glory, you definitely can't say Lucy hasn't been taking her stint at Circus School seriously...

Taking to Instagram, Lucy showed off her injuries (and that fabulous figure of hers) for her followers to see and it looks like taking to the aerial hoop doesn't come easy.

Modelling two huuuge purple bruises on the top of her thigh, Lucy said:

"Ouchie!!! I have bruises everywhere!!! Iv worked sooo hard this week .. I really hope u like my aerial hoop routine! Tune in tomorrow 6.30pm BBC1 #Tumble #bbc #gymnastics #aerial #circus #training."

After Lucy made her Tumble debut last week, the star said she felt "nerves got the better of her" as she looked back on her performance.

Lucy made her Tumble debut last Saturday (9 August).

Taking to the floor with her partner, acrobat Billy Jacques, Lucy performed a beach themed gym routine that failed to score highly with the judges.

But taking the panel's comments and scores in her stride, she tweeted:

"Well the only way is up!!!! ... Hope u enjoyed the show #tumble."

This week Lucy is hoping to lift her score total as she takes to the air to perform her aerial hoop routine. Eek!

Good luck!
