Cheer up! TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh couldn't raise a smile today as she headed out in Marbella with boyfriend Mario Falcone, after tweeting that she was suffering from a hangover
She's got the man of her dreams, a figure to die for and is in the holiday location considered above all others by residents of her native Essex.
But bikini-clad Lucy Mecklenburgh still couldn't raise a smile as she headed out shopping today with her boyfriend Mario Falcone in Marbella.
Perhaps Lucy's unhappy demeanour has something to do with the fact that she was suffering with a slightly sore head after a heavy night out in the Spanish resort the evening before.
The 21-year-old TOWIE starlet wrote on her Twitter page today: 'Morninggg ! To many raspberry martini's last night !!! Ouch my head !!' (sic)
Despite being hungover, Lucy didn't let her sore head get in the way of a bit of retail therapy, as she and Mario shopped for some new clothes ahead of their next big night out.
Lucy showed off her stunning figure in a mismatched bikini consisting of a pink top and floral bottoms, covering up slightly with a black kaftan.

The pretty brunette star is constantly asked about how she maintains her enviable hourglass figure, and recently tweeted that she doesn't believe in depriving herself, but sticks to a balanced and healthy diet.
She wrote on her Twitter page: 'I don't do fad diets I eat healthy and stay fit I never support fad diets , Balanced diets & everything in moderation #bodysecrets.
Lucy also added: 'Plenty of water& green tea. Also coconuts are a miracle food! Great for ur body&skin. Xxx'

Lucy was joined by her boyfriend Mario as the pair strolled along the street.
While Lucy wore a gorgeous bikini, Mario opted for a pair of denim shorts, a white printed vest top and a backwards baseball cap.
The pair have both been in Marbella since Monday, and are awaiting the arrival of their fellow castmates, who were seen jetting out of London's Southend Airport this morning.
But Lucy admitted to her followers on Twitter that while she is enjoying the break, there is someone she is missing massively - her dog Bentley.
She tweeted a picture of the tiny dog this morning with the caption: 'I miss my little boy!'
