Her sweet post comes after Claire was overcome with pride as she took to Instagram to congratulate her boyfriend Ricky earlier in the month. 

Claire proved she is Ricky’s biggest supporter as she gushed she was so proud of the sportsman after it was revealed he has earnt his place in the Boxing Hall of Fame.

Sharing a video of Ricky speaking about the accolade, she wrote: ‘So proud of you darling, flying to USA to be inducted into the Boxing Hall of Fame.

‘What an honour, and so deserved @rickyhitmanhatton’ alongside a series of red heart emojis. 

Speaking himself, Ricky said: ‘Coming away I thought receiving award were a thing of the past. To do what I did, I have great memories, I have an MBE and I thought that was me done, but to get the phone call about the Boxing Hall of Fame that was a proper shock that was. 

‘I have also just thought of myself as a local guy from Hattersley estate… I always try to keep my feet on the ground and stay humble which is why I get embarrassed talking about stuff like this. 

‘I accept this award with everyone who has worked with me…. There are too many people I could mention and all the fans that have supported me.’ 

Claire and Ricky hit it off after they both appeared on Dancing On Ice back in January, and last month they returned from a romantic trip to Tenerife together.

The couple’s sun-soaked Tenerife getaway came just weeks after they made their red carpet debut in Manchester.

And an insider revealed recently that Claire is also planning to introduce Ricky to her family, including her nine-year-old son Jaxon, whom she shares with her ex-partner Daniel Reilly.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Claire and Ricky have become really close. She wasn’t looking for a relationship but then Ricky came along and it just felt right and natural and she’s really happy.

‘She signed up for a reality TV show and met a great guy so it feels a bit like winning the lottery, and she’s really counting her blessings as it all came from nowhere and often that’s the best way.

‘She’s now really looking forward to introducing Ricky to her family and friends soon and they are really looking forward to the guy who has put a smile on Claire’s face.’

A source told the Mirror: ‘The chemistry was electric. Ricky went out of the show early on but he contacted her afterwards and let’s say he started wooing her.

‘They’ve been out on several dates. Saturday was just one in a long line of them. They’ve been seeing each other quite a bit. He is completely besotted.
