Although Pete was quick to deny rumours that the one time TOWIE pair were already back together, he did suggest that might change in the future, confirming "they are friendly again" and telling fans to "watch this space". Sounds promising, right?!
Speaking to the Daily Star, Pete said: "They aren't back together but they are definitely friendly again. I would say watch this space."
Shortly after Lucy split from Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, fans were speculating that Mario wanted to rekindle his romance with Lucy, after he posted a cryptic message to Instagram.
The message read: "People who are meant to be in each other's lives will always find their way back to each other. They may take detours in life, but they're never lost." He shared a love heart emoji alongside the post, but has since deleted it.
But Mario could have some serious competition, as over the weekend Lucy revealed that she received a gorgeous bouquet of flowers from a mystery admirer, who left a cryptic clue about their identity on the blooms.
An attached label read: 'Guess who? Famous film star name is the clue.' We're now brainstorming for any famous film star called Mario...
Or is Made In Chelsea star Hugo Taylor the man behind this mystery? He was apparently keen to get her number when the pair met at a recent London Fashion Week event.
Lucy was clearly just as baffled by the secret sender as she asked fans on Instagram for help: "Mystery!!??!! These just arrived for me at my shop ... What the hell does that mean!?"
Pete's comment and Lucy's mysterious bouquet delivery comes after Mario told Reveal last year that splitting with Lucy was his "biggest regret."
He told us: "She was my big love. My friends still say they see us getting back together. What happened with Lucy is my biggest regret. That was a big life lesson. When you have someone you truly love, don't f*** up."
He and Lucy, who were once engaged, split up three years ago. Since then, she and Mario had moved on, with Lucy going on to date Louis and Mario embarking on an on/off relationship with ex Emma McVey.
