The Only Way is Essex's Lucy Mecklenburgh claims she is being ''victimised'' by producers after scenes were included in the reality show in which she was called the ''local bike'' by co-star Maria Fowler
Lucy Mecklenburgh thinks she's being "victimised" on 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The 19-year-old star has claimed that the way she is being treated on the reality TV show is unfair after Maria Fowler called her the "local bike" because she went on a date with Kirk Norcross.
She also claims she slept with Mark Wright a fortnight before he proposed to his on/off girlfriend of nine years Lauren Goodger - but says producers on the ITV2 show have no right to make her out to be a "slag".
She said: "I'm being victimised. I didn't deserve Maria calling me a slag. Kirk and I were both single so I didn't think there was anything wrong with going for a drink."
"I've never stolen another girl's boyfriend and never will. I have been cheated on and it wasn't nice. Everyone I've been with has been single."
Lucy also admitted she has little contact with Lauren, though described her love rival as "brave" for getting engaged to club promoter Mark.
She told Reveal magazine: "Lauren and I just keep away from each other.
"She's brave taking on someone like Mark - there's no way I'd ever put up with him."
