Lucy Mecklenburgh loves her boyfriend Mario Falcone's big, muscular arms, and she used to refer to him as "Lego man" because of his hunky physique
Lucy Mecklenburgh used to call Mario Falcone "Lego man" because he had big arms.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star admits she sometimes hints to her boyfriend when she doesn't think he looks as toned as when they first met, but the couple don't tell each other if they think the other one has put on weight.
She said: "I think it's the opposite. I'll say, 'Oh, I think I've put on a bit of weight,' and he'll say, 'No you haven't and, if you did, I like you with a bit more weight on you!'
"I sometimes give him hints and say, 'Your arms aren't as big as when I first met you!' I used to call him Lego man because he had such big arms."
While the 21-year-old beauty loves spending time with the 24-year-old hunk, she admits they don't ever see each other working out because she stays at home and uses fitness DVDs and he spends time in the gym.
She added to new! magazine: "He's getting back into it at the moment so he's hitting the gym hard every day. I do my DVDs, he goes to the gym, so we don't have to see each other. Perfect!"
