Lucy Mecklenburgh has admitted she misses filming on The Only Way Is Essex but doesn't regret her decision to leave.

Lucy left TOWIE in December 2013, explaining that she needed to take a break from filming to "clear her head". In her final scene, Lucy said an emotional goodbye to ex-boyfriend Mario Falcone.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine this morning (21 January), Lucy said: "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."

Despite leaving, Lucy still keeps up with all the drama! "It was great fun and I love watching it," she continued. "I keep in touch with them all".

So does this mean the 23-year-old has indefinitely ruled out a TOWIE return? Lucy told Reveal in December that she "could be convinced to come back" following best friend Lydia Bright's persuasive powers!

Off screen, Lucy - who is dating Olympic gymnast Louis Smith - has been concentrating on her successful fitness brand, Results With Lucy, which offers nutrition, exercise advice and bootcamps.

Making her TV return last year, Lucy starred on BBC One gymnastics show Tumble, but will she be popping up on any other reality shows in the near future?

"A lot of them scare me but I just wanted to get through Tumble alive," she added. "I wouldn't rule them out but there are a few that look quite scary."

While Lucy said Strictly Come Dancing would be "nice" to appear on, she said of Celebrity Big Brother: "I think I'd be a little bit bored as well, I quite like doing things!"
