Lucy Mecklenburgh fans, be prepared to sob. heat can exclusively reveal that The Only Way Is Essex’s resident fashion fan is leaving the much-loved itv2 drama
Lucy filmed her final scenes during last night’s Christmas special, shooting her exit scene.
Our well-placed TOWIE source has told us: "Lucy wasn't at all happy with the way she came off in the last series. She thinks all the stuff with (her ex-fiancé) Mario Falcone and Tom Pearce is starting to make her look stupid. She thinks it's better for her future to take a break from the show."
Lucy has been a TOWIE regular since the very first series where she was involved in the show’s first big love triangle between Lauren Goodger and Mark Wright. She hooked up with Mario Falcone not long after but was left devastated when she found out Mario had done the dirty and cheated with a string of girls behind her back. After her last failed fling with the fellow Essex cast mate Tom Pearce, Lucy has had enough and is ready to fly to TOWIE nest for good.
heat has contacted the shows representatives for their comments. We’ll update you on that latest as and when we get it…
