Lucy Mecklenburgh was one happy girl today thanks to mastering the splits, but that's not the only reason the former TOWIE star should be smiling lately!

With a lot more time on her hands now her Tumble training is all wrapped up, it seems there is one move Lucy has still been trying to perfect.

And today, the budding gymnast finally did it!

After spending the last few months hard at work in the gym with her Tumble partner Billy George, it seems Lucy has worked up an appetite for all things Tumble-like and since the show ended the dark-haired beauty has continued to practice her gymnastics.

Proving practice definitely does make perfect, Lucy, decked out in bright pink gym gear and with a big smile plastered across her face, was a very happy girl earlier today as she finally did the splits - for the first time ever!

Nice job.

Capturing her triumph on camera, Lucy said: "YESSS!!! Finally did the splits for the 1st time in my life!!!!"

And while her gym success is very impressive, it's not the only thing that has got the 23-year-old smiling lately...

After splitting with her TOWIE co-star and former fiancé Mario Falcone, it seems Lucy has now found herself a new man in the form of TV presenter Gethin Jones.

Rumoured to be dating, last week Lucy and Gethin were pictured together enjoying a string of dates and reports suggest the couple are inseparable.

Could love be on the cards for the pair?!

So, with an impressive party trick in the bag and a possible budding romance, what more could Lucy want? A new business project maybe?

Since leaving the hit ITV2 reality show, Lucy has set her sights to fitness and the online fitness guru has enjoyed plenty of success with her 'Results With Lucy' online personal training venture.

But today, the star revealed she may just have something else up her sleeve. Tweeting earlier, Lucy said: "Sooooo excited about January!!! I know that sounds weird! But all will be revealed very soon! u are going to love it!!! Eeekkkk!!"

Ooo, Luce do spill the beans!
