Lucy Mecklenburgh: I work out so my 'ass looks banging'

Lucy Mecklenburgh works out so that her "ass looks banging".

The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has set up her own health and fitness business 'Results with Lucy' since quitting the ITV Be show and she's now revealed her main motivation for exercising regularly is to keep her derriere in tip top condition.

The Sun newspaper reports her as saying: "I like having a nice bum. I put a quote on Twitter the other day. It said, 'I work out for my health so I can live long... Who am I fooling? I work out so my ass will look banging in jeans'."

The 23-year-old reality TV star previously confessed seeing pictures of herself in a bikini while filming TOWIE in Marbella made her want to pursue a healthier lifestyle.

However, the brunette beauty - who is dating Olympic gymnast Louis Smith - admits she does miss being a part of the show.

She said previously: "I left over a year ago now and don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved 'TOWIE' and I do miss it but I'm really into doing my fitness business now ... I do miss it, it was great fun and I love watching it."
