And the TOWIE babe insists she isn't worried about The Wanted singer's reputation.

"You know what? He's in a boy band and I think every lad would be the same if they were in his position, but I don't think he's as much of a bad boy as everyone thinks," she told us at the Easilocks hair extensions event in London's Sanctum Soho Hotel last week.

Earlier this month, 24-year-old Max and newly single Lucy, 21, were pictured smooching in a club after he had performed with the band.

Confirming the romance, Lucy said: 'It's really early days. He's really busy, I'm really busy… but yeah, I do like him, he's hot!"

Lucy broke off her engagement to Mario Falcone, 25, four months ago after a series of claims he had cheated on her. Meanwhile, Max has had a brief fling with Hollywood tearaway Lindsay Lohan and enjoyed liaisons with a bevy of girls since Michelle called off their engagement last July, after claims he had sexted an ex-girlfriend.

But with new man Max on the scene, Lucy is keen to put her differences with Mario to one side.

She said: "We ended it on a good note, which is nice because we live in the same place so if we bump into each other we can be civil and say hello, but that's it."
