Louis Smith won't date Lucy Mecklenburgh again

Louis Smith will never date Lucy Mecklenburgh again.

The Olympic gymnast has remained on good terms with the businesswoman since he dumped her earlier this year following just over a year of dating but he has admitted he doesn't see a reconciliation taking place any time soon.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: "No, not at all [there's no unfinished business between us]. I'm 27 now, and I want my next relationship to be right, and me and Lucy weren't right for each other.

"You know, that doesn't mean that I thought she was a bad person or anything, I thought she was a lovely person, she has a lovely family she has great morals, she just wasn't right.

"We did have a lot of really nice times together, so it would be a shame to have a sour relationship with her afterwards when I do actually like the girl. You know what, we're good friends."

And, although Louis is happy living a single life, Lucy has admitted she's really struggling to get a date since their split and is trying really hard to be a little more approachable.

She said previously: "No one's really tried chatting me up yet. My friends say I'm the most unapproachable person and don't realise it. Someone will come up to me and ask if I want a drink and I'll be like, 'No, I've just bought one.' "

Meanwhile, there's only one lady in Louis' life at the moment and that's his 17-month-old pet pooch Luna.

Louis and Purina are working together to help create a better world for people and pets.
