Mario Falcone thinks his 'Only Way Is Essex' co-star Mark Wright is ''selfish, arrogant and vindictive''
Mario Falcone thinks Mark Wright is "selfish, arrogant and vindictive".
The 'Only Way Is Essex' newcomer thinks his co-star is attempting to get "revenge" on Mario's girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh - who Mark briefly dated during the first series of the ITV2 reality show - because she "messed up" his 10-year on-off romance with former fiance Lauren Goodger.
Mario said: "Mark is a very selfish, arrogant and vindictive person. He's trying to get revenge because in the previous series, Lucy said stuff that messed him his relationship with Lauren."
Despite Mark having claimed he and Lucy slept together just three weeks ago, Mario thinks he is trying to damage the pair's five-month relationship because he is jealous of them being the "hot new couple" on 'TOWIE'.
Mario added in an interview with OK! magazine: "I'm the new guy on his little show. I've got a good job, amazing family, beautiful girlfriend and I'm happy.
"He's just a club promoter who has nothing to offer anyone apart from a free table and a free bottle of cheap vodka.
"He knows I'm competition! Me and Lucy are the hot new couple on the show and he's desperately trying to get involved because he wants storylines."
