Lucy Mecklenburgh has admitted she would return to TOWIE - but only for a guest stint.

Fitness expert Lucy left the ITVBe reality show in December 2013, and has since built up a successful business, Results With Lucy.

Speaking to the Daily Star on Sunday, Lucy said: "I could never see myself returning full-time. I don't know how they could do it.

"But if something big happened, say in Lydia's life, then I'd happily go back if the occasion was right. And if they ever did a big TOWIE finale I'd happily take part."

Last year, Lucy told Reveal that filming on the show started to become stressful.

Lucy quit TOWIE in 2013.

"They're quite stressful, but I miss the socialising part of it," she told us. "I loved going out with the girls and catching up, but it does come with a lot of stress filming that show and that's the part I don't miss. I like being a viewer now."
