Documenting their night on social media, Lucy shared a short video clip as she arrived in New York, with Ryan seen walking ahead of Lucy as they made their way through their hotel.

Sharing a photo of himself holding a bottle of champagne while posing with Virgin Atlantic air crew, Ryan told fans: 'Landing on New Year's Eve with a bottle of bubbly from the @virginatlantic staff.'
