Lucy Mecklenburgh loves old fashioned Mario
'The Only Way is Essex' beauty Lucy Mecklenburgh loves Mario Falcone because of his "old fashioned values"
Lucy Mecklenburgh fell in love with Mario Falcone because of his "old fashioned values".
The 'Only Way is Essex' beauty - who became engaged to Mario on the last series of the show - admits she particularly likes him because of his close relationship to his family, and it was on their first ever holiday together that she knew she loved him.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I like that he's close to his family, he's loyal, he's just really nice. He takes me out for lovely dinner and he's really old fashioned about that, he has old-fashion values.
"Me and Mario have known each other for years and years but, I dunno probably our first holiday was when I really fell in love with him, he's just a really, really lovely guy yeah."
Despite living their life in the public eye, Lucy claims the two do get some personal time together because they like to stay in their local area.
She added: "Well we both stay quite local and even though we're always in the press we do get left alone sometimes and we get to have dinner parties with our friends and things like that so we are quite private."
