Lucy Mecklenburgh has blasted Lauren Goodger for posting online comments suggesting she is a "cheap w***e".

The 'Only Way Is Essex' star - who was recently pictured stood with a very naked fiance Mark Wright on the balcony of a Marbella hotel - slammed her love rival for her actions, saying his fiancee Lauren obviously believes nothing went on between the pair as she is still with him.

Writing on her twitter page, Lucy said: "@LaurenGoodger is retweetin sh*t about me! If she believes nothin went on, which she must do as shes still wit him , then y do it!? ..(sic)."

Her comments come after Lauren - who dated reformed Playboy Mark on and off for 10 years before he popped the question during the second series of the ITV2 show - retweeted derogatory comments about Lucy from her fans, with one branding the brunette beauty a "cheap w***e".

Lauren posted on twitter: "RT @kady_kads: I don't believe any of the sh*t about lucy and mark I was in marbs to @LaurenGoodger....lucy is a cheap w***e.

"RT @MissNellie1: @LaurenGoodger Your beautiful and don't watch @lucy_meck Your Soooo much better!! Rt pls xxxxx(sic)."

Lauren, Lucy and Mark - along with 'TOWIE' co-star Sam Faiers, who Mark has also enjoyed a brief romance with - were all involved in a tempestuous love triangle during the first series of the ITV2 show, with the 24-year-old hunk eventually ditching Lucy to settle down with Lauren.
