Former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh is training hard for the Tumble final this weekend, but as the show comes to a close, the star admitted she is really going to miss her Tumble team.

For months Lucy has been training non-stop to perfect her gymnastic skills in her bid to win the Tumble crown and as she prepares to take to the floor on Saturday (13 September) for one last time, it seems Lucy is sad to say goodbye to the show - and two people in particular!

While training today Lucy took the chance to reflect on the final and in particular how much she was going to miss her coach Katie Richards and professional partner Billy George once the show ends.

Sharing a photo of the three together, Lucy tweeted: "Tumble final on Saturday!!! I'm going to miss these nutta's!!! #tumble #teamlucy #teampink", along with an emoji of a crying face.

Since announcing she would be competing on the BBC One show back in June, Lucy has been hard in training to master her tricks, flicks and the dreaded vault and after spending 24/7 with her team, it's no surprise she has grown close to the pros helping her along the way - especially gym partner Billy.

Striking up a good friendship, Lucy and Billy have been inseparable in the last couple of months and Lucy has even described the good-looking gymnast as her "bestie"!

Lucy and Billy have become good friends from their time on the show together.

Today the online fitness guru joined her fellow Tumble contestant and Sugababes star Amelle Berrabah at Radio 1 to appear on Nick Grimshaw's breakfast show.

Lucy, who looked gorgeous in a pink jumper and leather skirt, told Nick that she was "really happy to be in the final" after her turbulent Tumble journey.

From her high-scoring aerial routine to just scraping through to the semi-finals after surviving the vault-off, Lucy has had her ups and downs on the show.

Speaking about the final, she said: "It's anyone's game now. It's the public vote so this week anything can happen."

Good luck, Luce!
