Lucy and Dan the latest TOWIE couple?

'The Only Way Is Essex' co-stars Lucy Mecklenburgh and Dan Osborne are reportedly secretly dating.

The reality TV stars have been getting together for the last two weeks during filming in Marbella, Spain - and could reveal their hidden romance during the show's ninth series which starts tonight.

An insider told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "The relationship is still in the early stages but it's been looking very good so far. They've been having a lot of fun getting to know each other.

"Spending time together in Spain has worked wonders and they're starting to get really close."

The 21-year-old boutique owner has recently publicly denied she is in a relationship since her split from long-term partner Mario Falcone.

However, it is said 'TOWIE' co-stars have been told of her moving on with Dan after reports her 26-year-old former fiance was dating a 16-year-old friend of Lucy's younger sister.

The source added: "Lucy was originally hurt that Mario had moved on so quickly.

"But she's hardly thought about him since getting with Dan ... She's had bad luck with men so here's hoping this relationship works out."
