Exclusive content from Epsiode 5 of The Only Way is Essex. We get the low down from Mark's new bird...
Tell us a bit about yourself.
OK, my name’s Lucy, I’m from Brentwood in Essex. I’m 19 years old.
So how did you meet Mark?
Well, I knew of him from seeing him out and about. Obviously he does promoting so he’s always in clubs that I go to. I actually properly had a conversation with him in Marbella in August just gone and then when we got back he got in contact with me and started texting me and it went from there really.
How did Mark approach you? Did he have any good chat up lines?
(Laughs) No, he used to come up to me when I was sunbathing (Laughs) I don’t know why he’d do that! He’d just come over and you know what he’s like. He’s a bit charming isn’t he? He’d come up and ask me if I’d like to meet him for a drink later. So that’s what he did really. He didn’t really use a chat up line as such, but... he’s very complimentary.
What was your first date like?
First time we went out, he took me to Nobu in London which was really good, really lovely, and then we went to Funky Buddah and I got very drunk and dragged him on the dance floor! (Laughs) But we had a wicked night. It was really, really good. We got a bit too drunk though!
Would you say he’s a romantic man?
Um… I wouldn’t say he’s done anything romantic yet but he hasn’t had the chance. He’s said that he’ll cook me dinner and things like that but it hasn’t really come about yet, but he’s always taking me to nice places. We’ve gone to the theatre, gone out for nice meals, but yeah. He’s very generous.
How long have you actually been seeing each other then?
If you had to describe your ideal man, and it wasn’t Mark, who or what would they be?
Definitely tall, dark and handsome.
Oh, so Mark’s not doing too badly, then?
Where do you see your relationship with Mark going?
OK, well it’s going really well as it is at the moment. As far as I know he really likes me, I really like him so hopefully we’ll just keep on going out and see how it goes. I think it’s all positive.
Mark has a bit of reputation as a player and he certainly has a history. What do you think of that?
I don’t think I’d necessarily agree with it all, but equally, I think I am the girl to change Mark Wright!
