Lucy Mecklenburgh has a hot mentor but fails to impress
Lucy Mecklenburgh put on a poor performance on new BBC One gymnastics show Tumble last night but she has bonded with pro gym partner Billy George.
‘I hope my partner is tall dark and handsome with lots of muscles,’ she quipped before meeting him – and Lucy lucked out.
‘[My type of man] has got to have a good sense of humour and a good body,’ she told us recently.
‘I don’t want someone who looks like he’s just got out of bed – he needs to have done his hair, to wear nice shoes and a shirt.
‘But most importantly, he has to like dogs. I think it’d be my worst nightmare if he didn’t!’
Lucy thinks being on TOWIE’s given people the wrong impression of her.
‘One massive misconception about me is that I don’t work hard and I’m stupid,’ she says. ‘I hate that.
‘I’ve two very successful businesses. But the negativity just makes me work harder.
‘I don’t think some girls and women like to see other women doing well – you get that quite a lot.
‘I’m young and that doesn’t help.
‘People need to focus more on their own lives rather than putting other people down.’
