But it looks like the 27-year-old star has been busy working on his bod if his latest jaw-dropping Instagram snap is anything to go by!

Mario posed for a cheeky topless photo last night and showcased an INCREDIBLE six-pack in the process – where did that come from?!

The Essex boy claims that the fitness product Burn Bullets has helped him to get his toned chest, having captioned the picture: ‘Without a clean diet and my #burnbullets I would struggle to reach my goals…

‘Time to push harder again now! Get yours from @grillafitness www.grillafitness.com’

It’s fair to say that many of Mario’s followers were pretty impressed by his buff bod.

‘This guys a legend!!’ one admirer commented, whilst another wrote: ‘OMG look atttttt himmmmm’

Yep, we see it too! We expect quite a few female fans might be hoping that Mario’s single after seeing this picture but – sorry to disappoint ladies – it looks like he’s still taken.

The TV star has been dating girlfriend Emma McVey since last November and, despite recent rumours that they might have split up, the couple appear to still be going strong.

Yesterday model Emma shared a cosy selfie as she cuddled up with Mario and their dog Oscar on the sofa – cute!

‘Just me and the three boys tonight ,’ Emma told her followers.

A ripped bod, a gorgeous girlfriend AND a cute puppy – life sounds pretty good for Mario right now!

Oh, and to top it off the former TOWIE star is set to be an uncle again after his sister Giovanna Fletcher and her McFly star hubby Tom announced last week that they’re expecting another baby – good times for the Falcone clan!
