Lucy Mecklenburgh's puffy face
Lucy Mecklenburgh is trying to cut down her drinking because she gets a puffy face when she downs too many beverages
Lucy Mecklenburgh gets a puffy face when she drinks alcohol.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star - who is currently dating co-star Tom Pearce - admits she knocks back the booze around five times a week when she is filming the ITV2 show, but she is trying to cut down on the amount she has because it makes her features look bloated.
She said: "While filming or going out with Tom and the girls, I drink four or five nights a week, so I need to cut down to one or two. My face goes puffy when I drink a lot, which is not an attractive look and it's making me feel yucky."
Meanwhile, the brunette beauty has hit back at reports claiming she is ditching the reality programme to try her hand at bigger and better things, by suggesting that she has no plans to leave just yet.
Writing in her new! magazine column, she explained: "There was a story last week saying I'm leaving 'TOWIE'. I've never said I'm leaving. I'm having a great time at the moment and I love being part of such a great show."
