Lucy Mecklenburgh has grown so close to her Tumble partner Billy George that she now considers him as her bestie. Aww!

Former TOWIE star Lucy and professional gymnast Billy have formed a strong bond on the BBC1 reality show, having trained together almost every day for weeks.

Earlier today, the pair took time out of practice for a refreshment break and, as the saying goes, they decided to 'share a Coke'.

In fact, Lucy and Billy even found a can emblazoned with the word 'mates' and each drank from it with a straw. You guys!

Sharing a selfie on Instagram, Lucy told her followers:"Me & @billyjacques #mate #bestie #pal #friend #buddy #minion #pro #privatejoke."

After getting off to a rocky start in Tumble, Lucy and Billy upped their game but then unfortunately found themselves at the bottom of the leader board last weekend.

However, after going head-to-head with John Partridge on The Vault, Lucy was saved and the pair live to fight another week!

Good luck for Saturday, guys!
