TOWIE’s Lucy Mecklenburgh Admits She’s Dating Max George

TOWIE’s Lucy Mecklenburgh let slip on this week’s show that just as LOOK reported, she’s been locking lips with The Wanted‘s Max George, with the 21-year-old beauty admitting to co-star pal Sam Faiers: “We’ve been messaging. He invited me to his gig. He’s really nice, but it’s very, very, very early stages.”

Lucy and Max were spotted canoodling backstage in the VIP area of London’s G-A-Y club last week following the band’s raucous late night performance. And now, the pretty reality star has declared that despite the cat being out of the bag, she’ll be attempting to keep schtum when it comes to gushing about her new romance with the boy band bad boy.

“I’m going to keep it private until I know what’s going to happen in the future”, Lucy told EntertainmentWise at yesterday’s Easilocks launch party in London. 

Lucy only split up with her filandering co-star fiancé Mario Falcone in April after two rocky years together, but friends say Max and Miss Meck could be more than just a fun-filled fling. “Max isn’t just a rebound after Mario – they both really like each other and want this to go somewhere”, a source told Now magazine.

“Lucy’s a sensible girl and of course she wants to take things slow after being so heartbroken. But she’s completely over Mario and is in a happy place now.”

We’re happy to hear she’s moving on from her flighty Italian stallion ex, but we can’t help but be a tad wary of new flame Max, who was also rumoured to have cheated on ex-girlfriend Michelle Keegan.

We reckon keep this one on his toes, Luce. What’s that they say? Treat Max mean, keep him keen…
