Mario Falcone will never find girl he loves as much as Lucy Mecklenburgh
Mario Falcone doesn't think he'll ever be able to find a girl who compares to his ex-fiancée Lucy Mecklenburgh.
The former 'TOWIE' hunk popped the question to the fitness guru in 2012 and their romance came crashing down just four months later but, despite the bad blood between them at the time, he doesn't think he'll ever find someone he loves as much as he did the brunette beauty, 24, three years ago.
He explained: "It was only when I was with her that I realised what love actually is, even if I didn't show it very well. That's probably why I'm still single - it will be very hard to find someone I love that much again."
However, despite the amount of love her had for his ex-girlfriend, the 27-year-old reality TV star believes he made the wrong decision taking Lucy back after she cheated on him with her former co-star Mark Wright in 2011.
He said: "My biggest mistake was thinking I could forgive her after she cheated with Mark Wright. But my actions were that disgusting. I'd never cheat again. It's not worth it. I never appreciated what I had."
Meanwhile, three years after their split, a reunion between the pair could be on the cards as Lucy has just dumped her gymnast boyfriend Louis Smith after a year of dating.
However, if Mario did rekindle his romance with the businesswoman, he has admitted he'd never air their relationship on television again.
He added to Star magazine: "Some things are sacred and you need to hold them back for yourself. Arguments should happen behind closed doors, not on TV."
