Lucy showcased her elegant sense of style as she opted for a flowing blue gingham dress with a waterfall hem, which she teamed with comfy white trainers.

The mother-of-one wheeled along her Louis Vuitton luggage, while her mum pushed little Roman in his pram.

Ryan, who followed behind with a suitcase of his own – cut a casual figure in a dark blue shirt and stone-coloured shorts as he headed into the station with Lucy.

Earlier in the evening Ryan shared a sweet snap of his daughter Scarlett, 12, meeting her sporting idol Jack Grealish at the Peter Street Kitchen in Manchester. 

He penned the caption: ‘Scarlett got to meet her favourite player at Uncle Scott’s event in Manchester last night thank you @scott.thomas @thesocialpr_ & to the super talented @miclowry it was a night to remember.’

The couple are currently living in Lucy’s native Essex with their son Roman while they work on doing up their new Cheshire pad.

Back in March, Lucy shocked her Instagram followers when she shared a snap of a set of keys, captioned: ‘New house, new project, new memories to be made.’

Although Ryan now has two homes in the UK, he recently confessed that he would love to live abroad.

He explained that won’t be able to happen in the near-future, however, as he wouldn’t want to leave daughter Scarlett, who remains in Manchester with actress mother Tina O’Brien.

Talking to brothers Adam and Scott for his Mancs on the Mic podcast, he said: ‘What it comes down to is the weather. The weather changes everything, if it’s not nice weather you stay indoors. 

‘In California the weather is good all year round so what do people do? They spend their time outside. Playing basketball, on the beach, going for runs. I feel like that is a happy life when you have the good weather. It keeps people motivated …

‘The only thing that stops that happening, is Scarlett. She lives in two homes. I would like her to have a base, where she can feel it is her “other home”.

‘Otherwise for six months of the year I could live abroad and work from home.’
