The Only Way Is Essex's Mario Falcone thinks his hunky co-star Mark Wright is a ''pain in the arse''.

Mario Falcone thinks Mark Wright is a "pain in the arse".

The 'Only Way Is Essex' newcomer - whose girlfriend, Lucy Mecklenburgh, allegedly slept with the 24-year-old hunk three weeks ago - thinks if the brunette beauty has any "common sense" she wouldn't want to go back to being Mark's "doormat" after he treated her badly when they dated briefly during the first series of the ITV2 reality show.

Mario said: "Mark Wright is a pain in the arse but it's something I can deal with. Lucy's my world.

"If she wanted to go back to being Mark's doormat, she could, but any girl with common sense would stick with the guy who's treating her like a princess, wouldn't she?"

However, Mario - who has already had a war of words with his co-star - thinks he would be a "national hero" if he came to blows with Mark on screen.

He added in an interview with Now magazine: "He's told me he's not attracted to Lucy anymore and I believe that. But if he does cross the line there will be another meeting and it won't go down as smoothly.

"I'm twice the size of him and he's got a lot of enemies, whereas I haven't been on the show long enough to have my haters. If something horrible did go down on camera I would probably become a national hero."
