The Only Way Is Essex's Lucy Mecklenburgh and Mario Falcone have split up after the brunette beauty cheated on him with ex Mark Wright just two weeks ago
Lucy Mecklenburgh and Mario Falcone have split up after the brunette beauty cheated on him with ex Mark Wright.
The couple - who have been dating for five months - were involved in an ugly nightclub spat with their 'The Only Way Is Essex' co-star just hours after Mario treated Lucy to a brand new BMW, with him branding his 20-year-old girlfriend "disgusting" after hearing she had slept with her former flame.
After Mark bragged to Mario that he could have Lucy - who he dated briefly during the first series of the ITV1 reality show - if he wanted her on Wednesday night's (05.10.11) show, Mario confronted the Essex hunk, saying: "Mark, I've heard you think you could have Lucy at the click of your fingers. Go for it, go on!"
Mark responded: "I can. I don't want her. Trust me mate."
However, when Mario goaded the 24-year-old star about his failed 10-year on-off relationship with former fiancee Lauren Goodger, Mark lost his temper and revealed he bedded Lucy just two weeks ago.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "It was ugly to watch. Mario was devastated. He hadn't expected that. He thought he had the upper hand.
"Lucy looked horrified and didn't know what to say."
However, this wasn't the only argument Mark caused, as his best mate James 'Arg' Argent's girlfriend Lydia Bright was left fuming when she found the cheeky pair chatting up a bevy of beauties in a club.
The insider added: "Lydia hates being treated like a mug. She wants to give Arg the benefit of the doubt but he doesn't make it easy for himself."
