The reality star has moved on from Mario

Lucy Mecklenburgh insists that her ex Mario Falcone was talking rubbish when he claimed she drunk-called him to profess her love last week.

The TOWIE star, 22, explains that it was Mario, 25, who rang her after she’d enjoyed a boozy night at Essex club Sugar Hut – but she can’t remember what they spoke about.

‘I answered but have no recollection of the conversation because I was drunk and half asleep!’ says Lucy.

‘I couldn’t have been very nice to him because if I had been on the phone pouring my heart out, I’m sure I would’ve heard from him since, which I haven’t.’

Lucy is now dating her co-star Tom Pearce, who she’s ‘so comfortable’ and ‘happy’ around that she recently met his parents for the first time.

She doesn’t think it’s fair that Mario has said she’s been with ‘so many guys’ since they split in April after he admitted to Now that he’d cheated with multiple women.

‘I’ve been out with Tom, Dan Osborne and on a couple of dates with Max George – in six months – which, to me, is not “so many,”‘ says Lucy.

‘By saying all these things, I feel like Mario wanted to cause an argument between me and Tom but, in fact, I’d already told Tom the truth so everything is cool between us.’
