Olympic gymnast Louis Smith returned to training this year and won a gold medal for the pommel horse at the British Gymnastics Championship in Liverpool this weekend.

More news!

Now he’s dating 23-year-old Lucy Mecklenburgh and has admitted she’s the ‘missing piece to the puzzle’ in his life. What a darling.

The two L’s met whilst competing on TV gymnastics’ show Tumble. Although Louis has admitted in the past that he’s single and ‘lonely’ he’s far from that now.

Cosying up with GOT - doesn't look like a 'showmance' to us.

The 25-year-old told The Mirror: “Everything’s great and I’m very happy. “Someone to share things with was the one thing missing from my puzzle, so it’s lovely to be with Lucy.

“We’ve been seeing each other a few months, but it feels so easy and as if we’ve known each other for ages. I’ve tried to sweep her off her feet.

“She’s very driven, busy and a real planner, whereas I’m probably more laid-back because, if I look ahead too much, I get stressed and then I don’t do well. We complement each other well.”

Despite their seemingly blooming relationship some have labelled them a ‘showmance’ – we don’t see that here.
