'TOWIE' star Lucy Mecklenburgh thinks she and Mario Falcone will eventually marry, despite calling off their engagement recently
Lucy Mecklenburgh believes she and Mario Falcone will marry one day.
'The Only Way is Essex' co-stars dramatically called off their engagement during the latest series of the show, but Lucy is still confident they will eventually wed.
She told BANG Showbiz: "I think we will get married one day but I think right now this is the best decision for us.
"Obviously we decided to end the engagement and we've gone back to being boyfriend and girlfriend.
"I'm still 21 and so busy with 'TOWIE' and other stuff and it was just putting more pressure on everything.
"We are really happy, now, which sounds bad, but we are."
The pair got engaged on-camera aboard a luxury yacht in Marbella, Spain, this summer but called off their engagement last month after one of Mick Norcross' Sugar Hut Honeys - the name given to scantily clad waitress at the 'TOWIE' co-star's bar - told how Mario had been sending her provocative text messages.
They reconciled after Mario, 24, cooked her dinner, presenting it to her nude, and Lucy insists they have put the incident behind them.
She added: "We're having lots of fun. We are in a really good place at the moment."
Lucy is also looking forward to spending Christmas with her boyfriend, adding: "I'm quite busy. I've got a new shop opening in September and a website launch and loads of other things going on... If we get a few days off me and Mario would like to go to New York."
She is also looking forward to having a reality spin-off with her man, saying: "It would be amazing in a few years' time."
