Lucy defends herself on Twitter

TOWIE‘s Lucy Mecklenburgh has hit back after her ex Mark Wright slammed her on Twitter yesterday for mentioning him in a tabloid interview.

Mark, 26, was furious when he read that Lucy, 21, had said he was ‘obsessed with his looks’ during their short-lived fling and that her new boyfriend Max George is the ‘best’ in bed.

‘I don’t normally do this but after 3 yrs & someone who can’t even be classed as an X (1 date) has used my name to get headlines again,’ Tweeted Mark.

‘Nothing but a kiss & tell girl with no class or dignity. It’s low enough that youv been seeing someone for a month & already sold your story. But leave my name out of it. #disgusting.

‘And for the record iv never got ready in front of you in my life which makes one of your comments an out right lie.’

Lucy went on to say in the interview that Max, 24, is ‘more of a bloke’ than Mark, who’s now dating The Wanted singer’s ex-fiancée Michelle Keegan.

But the Essex girl insists she was misquoted in the piece and tried to explain herself to Mark in a series of heated messages.

‘Absolutely FUMING!!!!!!!!!!!! The headline NEVER came out of my mouth!!! & I said Essex boys in general r really groomed I WASN’T referring to mark at all!!!!’ Tweeted Lucy.

‘@MarkWright_ that’s not the case I wasn’t even talking about u, my words have been twisted, u no how it feels 2 b manipulated by the press.

‘I did an interview in good faith & about various things. I never said that headline & it’s really upset me.’

Dan Wootton – who interviewed Lucy for The Sun – said on Twitter yesterday: ‘@lucy_meck Erm, you weren’t referring to Mark? Do you really want to go there? It’s great interview. You were honest, look amazing. Be happy.’
