Louis Smith has admitted he lets Lucy Mecklenburgh plan all their dates… but there is a good reason for that!

Rather than being lazy, the Olympic athlete says Lucy just knows way more about all the great places to hang out.

He told Daily Star: "We try to go out as much as we can but we're not very rock and roll. Between my previous relationship and Lucy, I spent the whole time being single. I didn't really go on any dates or to any nice restaurants. So Lucy plans where we go out because I really haven't got a clue."

Louis and Lucy began dating at the end of last year after meeting on the BBC One gymnastics reality show Tumble where Lucy was a contestant and Louis was a mentor.

Since then, they've been in a long-distance relationship as they're frequently apart due to work. Lucy has her Essex boutiques and online fitness empire Results With Lucy, while Louis a professional gymnast who competes around the world.

Things are clearly going great for the couple as back in March, Louis told us: "I haven't felt like this for a long time, if ever. It's taken me by surprise. Lucy is just so lovely which is rare to find in someone who looks as beautiful as her. I've been on dates with girls who are gorgeous - but they know it.

"It doesn't take a genius to work out she's had a tough time the last couple of years. She's such a delicate lady - I'd never do that to her. Without sounding too cheesy, I try and give her everything she's never had."
