Mario Falcone brands Jessica Wright a liar
Mario Falcone claims Jessica Wright is "lying" about him making a pass at her while she was dating his friend Ricky Rayment
Mario Falcone has branded Jessica Wright a liar.
'The Only Way Is Essex' regular claims his co-star Jessica Wright is "lying" about him making a pass at her in the wake of her break-up from his on-screen pal Ricky Rayment.
Mario, 26, claims Jess fabricated the story that he "tried it" on with her a year prior to the couple's split in an attempt to get revenge on her now ex-boyfriend.
He wrote on Twitter: "Jess is very much lying to get revenge on Ricky, if I had 'tried' it a year ago why bring it up now Ricky is single? And not then... Strangely convenient."
The notorious lothario was responding to claims Jessica made on last night's series finale in which the brunette beauty branded Mario a "dog" along with her co-stars Chloe Sims and Lauren Pope.
He then went on to defend himself over claims he had been swapping flirty texts with Chloe and Lauren - who recently reconciled months after falling out over the hunky reality TV star.
Mario wrote: "Chloe conversation was very much banter... I didn't intend for it too sound flirtatious but apologise if it did. (sic)"
He added: "Lauren some details true, some quite false.
"But I was a little lonely over a month ago & sent a silly message.. As for the guy your seeing, you said 'he's not the man I will marry' I said 'then why you with him'. (sic)"
