The cryptic post came hours after Ryan’s latest acting part seemingly threw a major spanner in the works in the midst of their blooming romance.
The former Coronation Street actor is set to join Australian soap Neighbours.
Ryan, 33, announced his big news on Instagram, and despite being flooded with messages from his 406k followers, Lucy remained completely silent – right until the frog image hours later.

The couple confirmed their romance back in July 2017 after months of speculation.
Fans were then delighted to see their love bloom on the Celebrity Island, watching as they shared their first kiss.
More recently, the former TOWIE star joined the Thomas brothers on a family holiday to attend a friend’s wedding, proving just how serious the relationship has become.

Ryan announced that he would be heading Down Under to play “loner” Rafael Humphreys.
Sharing a picture of himself holding the famous Ramsay Street sign, he wrote: “I grew up watching Neighbours so to get the chance to join the cast is amazing.
“I was on holiday with my daughter when I got a phone call. (It was) my agent asking if I’d like to play this part.
“I spoke to the producer and found out more – it was very different from anything I’d played before – it was quite a dark story, that interested me. It’s a new challenge and I can’t wait to start filming.”
