TOWIE hunk Mario Falcone is first in line to snap up a date with model Nicola McLean

Another day, another woman steals Mario Falcone‘s heart. Sort of.

The TOWIE hunk, 26, has been hitting up the social networking scene the best way he knows how: by chatting up pretty women. And the lucky lady in question? Nicola McLean.

Nicola confirmed at the start of this week that she has split from her footballer husband Tom Williams, after five years of marriage.

On Tuesday, Maria Fowler tweeted a sexy snap of her bestie Nicola, 32, in which she wore nothing but black tights and a suggestive glance.

Maria kindly offered up her newly single mate with the caption: ‘The guys are gonna be lining up to take her out!’

Mario wasted no time in offering her a shoulder to cry on. He responded almost instantly: ‘Amazing! Shot gun ha x’

Nicola replied: ‘He is fit tbf.’ Scandalous!

Mario then ordered Maria to babysit for mum-of-two Nicola on Friday night so he could take the pretty model on a date. Her reply? ‘Done.’

Talk about rebounding!

But it seems Nicola could use some cheering up, admitting in an interview on Tuesday that she’d been ‘suffering in silence’ for the past five months as her marriage crumbled.

On Monday she retweeted a picture of Tom at a club surrounded by booze with the caption: ‘Is this aimed at me @mrtomwilliams #heartless’

The next day she posted a picture of Tom in a Las Vegas club with a brunette woman in the background on Instagram, claiming the lady with him is wearing one of her jumpsuits.

The caption read: ‘Omg when clothes go missing from your house and you see someone else wearing it @MrTomWilliams’

As for Mario, we’re not sure if going after a woman the very same day she announces her single status is appropriate, but if there’s a juicy new couple on the cards we sure want to know about it! Watch this space, guys.
