The Only Way Is Essex‘s Lucy Mecklenburgh has hit back at the rumours that she’s about to quit the ITV2 reality show.
The 22-year-old, who has just finished filming for the TOWIE Christmas special, was said to be bowing out of the Bafta-winning show after the end of this series.
Whispers earlier this week claimed that Lucy wasn’t pleased with how she came off in the last series after her tangled love triangle with ex-fiancé Mario Falcone and new flame Tom Pearce became the talk of Essex.
But it looks like the outspoken glamourpuss is even less happy with the latest headlines over her rumoured departure…
‘Oh u gotta love a ‘SOURCE QUOTE’ .. Haaaa’, Miss Meck posted on Twitter earlier today in response to the claims.
We’re hoping this means she’s very much staying put! But if not, there’s always the I’m A Celeb jungle – after watching fellow former TOWIE star Joey Essex ace it on this year’s series, Lucy has admitted she quite fancies a piece of the the Bushtucker action herself.
‘I’d love to do I’m A Celeb’, she told New! magazine. ‘ I don’t know how I’d cope with the creepy crawlies, but I’d definitely be up for the challenge.’
