Mario Falcone says he would be prepared to quit 'The Only Way Is Essex' if it meant he could rekindle his relationship with ex-fiancée Lucy Mecklenburgh
Mario Falcone would quit 'The Only Way Is Essex' for Lucy Mecklenburgh.
The reality TV star - who was catapulted to the spotlight on the reality TV show alongside his ex-fiancée who he split from last summer - believes the pair share a connection which cannot be replicated and believes it could be easier for them to have a relationship if they were to rekindle their romance away from the cameras.
He explained to Now magazine: "I've said to the girl (Lucy) I'd happily leave 'TOWIE' tomorrow if she says she wants to give it another go and get back together with me. She's always saying she's scared and unsure because I keep getting seen with other girls, but I don't understand what I'm meant to do. She's saying she doesn't want to be with me or speak to me again, then she gets in contact. I'm meant to be waiting for her and proved I've changed, but at the same time I'm not allowed to talk to anyone else and she doesn't want to be with me? It's just a very confusing situation."
Mario is convinced if their lives hadn't played out on camera things might not have ended between them, despite his infidelities with several girls and Lucy's one-off fling.
Talking about quitting the show, he added: "[If I quit we] can be a normal couple. When you go home and close the door, whatever happens behind closed doors is private and for you two only, not millions of people. It makes things easier."
Mario previously claimed he thinks he and Lucy are still drawn to each other because they can't help but be "curious" as to what would happen if they gave their relationship another shot.
