Lucy Mecklenburgh was nervous before her dye session, and took great care to make it a surprise!


Lucy was excited to reveal her lighter locks, and for her fiancé Mario to be the first to see the new her– but as viewers saw, his reaction lacked the lustre of her new caramel locks! Mario’s inital ‘Oh My God’ didn’t go down well with Lucy, who replied worriedly: ‘You’re gritting your teeth.’

Mario quickly reassured Lucy with a grin that it ‘didn’t look THAT bad’ (err, thanks?) after winding her up by saying that he didn’t like it!

He further played down her excitement by adding, ‘you havent gone too blonde, though… It’s like a light brown.’

After 5 hours in the salon chair to transform her glossy dark locks to a caramel blonde head-full of hair, Lucy was more than frustrated with Mario’s lack of reaction! The two playfully joked after his foot-in-mouth comments as he added that it would be like cheating on her now with her drastic hair change.

A later scene at Lydia Rose Bright’s house when Lucy revealed her ‘do to best mate Lydia, Mario added: ‘She left looking like Kim Kardashian, and has come back looking like Nicola Roberts… It’s just getting used to it.’ Awww, harsh Mario- both Kim K and Nicola have stunning hair to aspire after!
