They're the current golden couple of TOWIE but are Lucy Mecklenburgh and Mario Falcone heading the way of many Essex couples before them?

Whilst they've only been engaged a couple of months it doesn't sound like Mario and Lucy are basking in the happy post-proposal glow. With Lucy hinting that she isn't ready for commitment could their relationship be over before they even make it up the aisle?

Most of the current series of 'The Only Way Is Essex' has been filled with affairs of the heart with castmates hooking up with new partners. But after taking a trip down memory lane, we were reminded just how many past TOWIE couples have crashed and burned.

There was the original king and queen of Essex, Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger who called of their engagement last year. Their fellow long-term twosome Lydia Bright and James 'Arg' Argent soon followed.

Take a look at our special video report above and judge for yourselves. Can Mario and Lucy beat the curse?
