Lucy Mecklenburgh thinks Emily Scott is “too pale” for Mark Wright.
The ‘Only Way Is Essex’ beauty – who dated the 24-year-old hunk briefly during the first series of the ITV2 reality show – thinks Mark is only flirting with the Australian model on ‘I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!’ because it’s part of his “game plan”.
She said: ” “I’m surprised that in terms of girls, they’ve not put anyone more his type in there. I don’t think Emily is his type at all – she’s far too pale! But I don’t know, maybe he’s broadening his mind a bit.
“I don’t know what his game plan is, but he’s single and there’s a single girl in there, so he probably would go there and get it on in the jungle.”
While Lucy is backing McFly bassist Dougie Poynter in the jungle, she thinks Mark will do well because he always gets his way – including persuading ‘TOWIE’ producers to give him a farewell scene at the end of the series three season finale.
She added in an interview with the Daily Star newspaper: “I’m not friends with Mark now. I’ve cut off contact with him. I won’t be voting for him to win – I’m with Dougie all the way!
“He’ll do well in the jungle as what Mark wants is what he gets. It’s like his leaving scene in ‘TOWIE’ – they didn’t give Amy Childs one but Mark usually gets his way and he wanted it to be dramatic.”
