Since Mario Falcone decided to leave TOWIE after 4 years, he’s been spending family time with sister Giovanna and popstar Tom Fletcher

Yesterday, Mario Falcone announced that he was leaving his home of telly, TOWIE, after being on the show for four years and 14 series.

But don’t think that this 27-year-old Italian stallion is just going to be kicking it back and relaxing with all this extra free time he has now. Oh no siree.

His big sis, Giovanna Fletcher, shared THIS pic of her baby bro rustling up something in the kitchen, with his her hubby, Tom Fletcher as a sous-chef too.

Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood watch out!

With Mario sporting a determined (and slightly menacing) look on his face, and oven gloves at the ready, the former TOWIE looked ready to rhumble up some crumble.

While McBusted and McFly band member and most adorable dad in showbiz Tom looked unsure of the baking task in hand, with a rolling pin in hand and his floppy chefs hat and Cath Kidston apron on. Just roll with it Tom, roll with it.

Captioning the post saying that ‘Buzz is napping, I’m doing some work and these two are BAKING!!’, Gi hashtagged it as a #typicaltuesday. If this is typical, we’ll be round every Tuesday from now on!

We’re not the only ones to make comparions of the pair with our fave mid-week show, GBBO, as follower kellinesbitt78 commented ‘Bake off here they come’ while user __georgiabell wasn’t quite as keen on their baking abilities: ‘I wouldn’t truth them’ along with a crying face emoji. Wonder if these two will be crying over croissants?

With Essex boy Mario telling the Mirror TV that despite the fact he had a ‘great time on TOWIE and relished the many opportunities’, he felt like it’s ‘time to move on and explore something new’ – maybe that something new is a new line of bread loaves! Or perhaps he’s cracking at cookies?

Whatever it is these two monkeys end up making, can we have a slice pretty please? We’ll put the kettle on!
