Jack Tweed married Big Brother star Jade Goody before her death from cancer

Will Lucy Mecklenburgh never learn? For weeks we watched the model chase her boyfriend Mark Wright hopelessly around Essex as he juggled a threesome of bronzed beauties on The Only Way Is Essex.

But now that he's busy romancing I'm A Celebrity contestant Kayla Collins, Lucy's got her revenge...by snogging Mark's best mate at his 24th birthday do.

At Mark's party, held at his bar Deuces last weekend, Jack Tweed's lothario reputation didn't deter any of the female contingent who clamoured to have their picture taken with him.

But 20-year-old Lucy, looking stunning in a Gorgeous Couture dress, seemed lost and lonely as her ex partied the night away in his VIP area.

Mark didn't pay much attention to Lucy all night - in fact they barely spoke,' says Now's exclusive reporter on the scene. ‘But when Jack arrived, Lucy made a beeline for him.

'They looked cosy as they chatted, hugging as they spoke. Jack was very affectionate and even stroked her hair at one point.

'When they brazenly shared a snog in front of everyone, none of their friends batted an eyelid. This definitely wasn't their first encounter.'

Fighting back the tears on the Essex reality show, poor Lucy constantly failed to pin Mark down in a relationship, but 23-year-old Jack won't be any easier to tame, Lucy!

He's had his fair share of scandalous and high-profile relationships, most recently with 23-year-old Big Brother starlet Chanelle Hayes, whom he dated while she was pregnant with footballer Matthew Bates's baby.

However, it looks like he's taken a big shine to his friend's ex. ‘The turnout for Mark's party was poor - his celeb mates and exes Sam Faiers and Lauren Goodger were noticeably absent, unlike Lucy, who had no qualms in turning up.

'But if her PDA with Jack's anything to go by, I'd put money on him being her main reason to attend.'

Do be careful, Lucy: Jack Tweed's got more baggage than Victoria Beckham going on a six-month holiday...
