Mario Falcone has responded to recent rumours that he could be getting back together with ex, Lucy Mecklenburgh.
The two enjoyed a romance on The Only Way Is Essex, even getting engaged, but sadly split in 2013.

The Mirror reports that Mario sparked reunion rumours when he posted a romantic quote to Instagram, which read: “People who are meant to be in each other’s lives will always find their way back to each other. They may take detours in life, but they’re never lost.”
Now though, Mario has put a stop to the speculation by addressing the rumours directly, telling Now magazine: “Lucy and I do speak now… It’s nice to have her back in my life…
“I think it’s really nice that people would like that [we might get back together].

“Lucy and I are friends, but I think that’s all it’ll ever be - not the happily ever after everyone wants.”
Lucy herself also recently denied the rumours, telling Star magazine that nothing is going on between them: “Someone asked me, ‘Are you back with Mario?’ I said ‘No!’”
So there you go.
