Mario Falcone nervous ahead of Lucy proposal
'The Only Way Is Essex' star Mario Falcone admits his proposal to Lucy Mecklenburgh was "nerve racking" and was very pleased when she said yes
'The Only Way Is Essex' star Mario Falcone admits his proposal to Lucy Mecklenburgh was "nerve racking".
The Italian heartthrob popped the question to the stunning boutique owner during last night's (13.06.12) 'TOWIE' special, 'The Only Way Is Marbs', and while he had been wanting to do it for a while, he was very nervous.
After the episode was aired on ITV2, Mario tweeted: "Me and my fiancé @lucy_meck (aaahh) would like to thank you all for your nice messages!!! It was nerve racking but she's worth it!! X (sic)"
He also wrote: "Off to bed... Thank you for all your congratulatory messages... Going to bed with a huge smile on my face! Night night xxx (sic)"
And it seems Lucy - who had no hesitations in saying yes - was equally as thrilled and took to her own twitter account to speak of her happiness.
She said: "Thank you for all the amazing congrats messages !! Me and my Fiancée (that sounds so weird) really appreciate it xxx (sic)"
Mario - who split from Lucy last year after it was revealed she had cheated on him with her former flame Mark Wright - popped the question after a day of sunbathing, kissing, champagne drinking on a boat in Marbella, Spain.
He told her: "I can't put into words how much I love you. In the words of Michael Jackson you rock my world.
"I don't know what we will be doing in 50 years time but as long as I'm with you I really don't care."
He then got down and one knee and said: "Make me the luckiest guy in the world, will you marry me?"
An emotional Lucy quietly replied: "Yes."
