Polka-dotty! Lucy Mecklenburgh lets her hair down on yacht in LA

Former Towie star Lucy Mecklenburgh celebrated her 22nd birthday in style recently - by sipping Moet from a bottle on a boat in California.

The fitness guru relaxed her strict regime for the celebrations, and was seen soaking up the sun in a pink polka dot bikini.

Lucy tweeted her excitement about the trip, writing: "LA TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAHHHHH!!!"

She also kept fans updated throughout her getaway, tweeting: "1st flight ever on my own as poor @Scarlett_short_ missed our flight :-( .. So I'm all alone in LA for 24 hours.. What do I do !?!"

But she was kept calm by the Virgin crew: "A massive thank you to all the lovely ladies that work for @VirginAtlantic at Heathrow .. So friendly & accommodating," she tweeted.

And she obviously soon found ways to fill her time. As well as the luxury boat trip in the sun, Lucy also celebrated at a top local eatery, writing: "In the Ivy for my bday lunch!x #LA."

She also enjoyed a shopping trip at The Grove, and a lunch meeting at the famous Chateau Marmont hotel.

At the end of her trip she wrote: "Last day in LA :-( ... I need to find the Hollywood sign!!!"

We're not sure if she accomplished that, but she obviously had a great time.
