Lucy Mecklenburgh has spoken out about her budding romance with The Wanted‘s Max George on TOWIE.

After she was seen kissing Max, 24, at one of his gigs last week Lucy’s pals Sam Faiers and Bobby Norris were keen to quiz her about it on the reality show.

We’ve been messaging. He invited me to his gig,’ Lucy, 21, told her co-stars.

He’s really nice, but it’s very, very, very early stages.’

Sam and Bobby then teased loved-up Lucy by cheekily singing The Wanted’s No 1 single Glad You Came at her.

Max and Lucy certainly looked close as they cuddled up in the VIP area of London’s G-A-Y club last week.

Lucy came with a friend after Max invited them in and they spent the entire time cuddling and kissing,’ a source tells The Sun.

They were very affectionate and were constantly flirting. They arrived in the backstage area around 3am and later left together.’

The relationship comes months after Max’s ex-fiancée Michelle Keegan started dating Lucy’s former fling Mark Wright.
