Mario Falcone can't forgive Lucy for dating Tom Pearce

The on-screen fallout between Mario Falcone and Lucy Mecklenburgh, 22, has divided the TOWIE cast, but as he bares his soul to Now, Mario admits: ‘I was such a c***.

‘I know that’s a harsh word but it’s still an understatement of the way I was,’ he confesses.

In his first tell-all interview since The Only Way Is Vegas hit our screens last week, the former player insists that he’s a changed man.

And celibate, too!

So is it true Mario, 25,was ‘clinging on to the hope’, in Lucy‘s words, of getting back together with her?

‘The day after I came out of Celebrity Big Brother, I went round to Lucy‘s and had dinner,’ Mario tells us.

‘It was really nice and familiar and we were texting up until Vegas – but then she hurt me.

‘In Vegas, she was holding my hand outside the hotel, hugging me outside the cab, all that sort
of stuff, then the next thing I know she’s got with Tom [Pearce].’
