On Sunday, Lucy Mecklenburgh and Ryan Thomas took their relationship to the next level as the stars enjoyed a cinema trip with Ryan's daughter Scarlett.

The trio watched nineties classic Mrs Doubtfire at the pop-up cinema and the date was of particular importance because they were joined by seven-year-old Scarlett.

If he doesn’t get along with my date then it is pointless pursuing that relationship.

The sooner we all establish if we can work together as a trio the better.

Dating men with kids takes someone very selfless and someone who is good at compromising her precious partner time. So, in order to avoid those problems, dating men with kids is something I don’t do. They are usually more mature and responsible and have their shit together because they have to. There are some amazing men out there with some great kids I’m sure of it. What happens is that inevitably I get put aside for one reason or another, all good reasons. I want to be able to be with my partner when it feels right. But, I would rather limit my choices than settle for something that I know won’t make me happy. Someone else’s kids shouldn’t be my responsibility. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with it, I’m just saying it’s not my first choice. We like what we like and it’s time to be proud of who we are and what we want.

When you have someone with kids, the kids come first (as they should) and I can’t compete with that priority. Why should I settle for less than I know I want and deserve. You need to work around the custody and children’s schedule. In my age range many men who are single have had children.

But how do you deal with this situation when you don't have any children of your own?

Boy do guys get offended when I don’t go out with them because they have young children that are at the center of their lives! If it was a clean divorce/break up with no kids then she isn’t in the picture.

How am I to make a decision on whether a new boyfriend is worth my time if he hasn’t met my child?

My son and I are a partnership and a two-for-one deal.

The former Towie star, 26, met Corrie star Ryan a few months ago while filming Bear Grylls' Celebrity Island together and the cinema trip was an opportunity for bonding time between Lucy and Ryan's daughter.
