Lucy Mecklenburgh has said she's currently enjoying the single life.

The former TOWIE star said that while she's enjoying being young, free and single - there is one thing that she does miss.

Speaking to Daily Star Sunday, Lucy said: "It's been four months of being single and I'm kind of loving it.

"The biggest thing I miss about being in a relationship is Sundays. When you're single, Sundays are awful. What do you do? I love those lazy Sundays chilling out, having a roast and watching movies together."

Lucy, who has ruled out using Tinder, added: "No one's really tried chatting me up yet."

She said her friends "say I'm the most unapproachable person and don't realise it," but she is staying optimistic about the future: "The way I'm looking at things at the moment is that if it happens then it happens."

Lucy and Olympic gymnast Louis Smith split in January following a 14-month romance.

She says things are "civil" between them, explaining that she recently sent him a text message while she was watching the British Championships.

This isn't the first time Lucy has opened up about her relationship heartbreak. In an interview with Fabulous last month she claimed it was Louis who decided to end things.

She said: "What makes it harder is that there wasn't a massive big thing that happened. There was no cheating, no big scandal. We were very happy and everything was going the way it should. It felt like 'it' to me.

"When we got back from Thailand, I just didn't hear from him after we landed. We got back and it was obvious that for him it was done. [...] I'm someone who tries to fix things, but there was no chance to do that. After Thailand, that was it."
