TOWIE's Lucy Mecklenburgh has opened up about her blossoming relationship with Max George - and revealed she wants to be the UK version of Kim Kardashian.

The reality TV star, model and businesswoman insists she would never date anyone from Essex again after her failed romances with Mark Wright, Mario Falcone and Dan Osborne.

In an interview with The Sun, Lucy admits she's very happy with new beau Max George...

She says: "Max is the best looking guy I've ever been with.

"When I was with Mark [...] he was obsessed with his looks. I don't want anyone like that now - it really is unattractive.

"Max couldn't be any more different and I find that really hot."

Lucy also reveals that former fiancé Mario, who cheated on her while they were engaged, was just as vain and asked her to buy him a make-up set for Christmas.

Lucy has now been dating The Wanted singer Max since last month, after he pursued her on Twitter.

She says: "I'm the happiest I've ever been. I speak to Max all the time even though at the moment it is tricky because he's in different countries all the time and is going to America for a month."

Max was previously engaged to Corrie star Michelle Keegan who, by "weird coincidence", is now dating Lucy's ex Mark!

Categorically denying there was ever any sex tape with Dan as claimed on TOWIE, Lucy added: "I want to become the British Kim Kardashian - but not that way!"

Lucy will be back for the 10th series of TOWIE later this year, but says it will be her last.

She's been busy running her own fashion boutique, setting up her Results With Lucy website and modelling lingerie for the likes of Caprice.

The petite star recently had to defend her small frame after getting "annoyed" by comments about her figure.

She said: "I'm getting so much stick at the moment about my size. I'm healthy. I am a six to eight, which is small, but it's through exercise."

Lucy was recently voted as having the best celebrity bikini body by Reveal readers.
