Fans of the Essex-based reality show saw Mario swearing off women earlier in this series, following a failed relationship with ex-co-star Lucy Mecklenburgh, and slightly awkward encounter with new girl Grace Andrews.
But last night, Mario was in high spirits as he counted down the hours on Twitter until his celibacy ended… and even made a plea for Cheryl to pay him a night time visit.
Mario tweeted: "Wonder if @CherylCole is going to surprise me at midnight and turn up at mine to end my celibacy? Come on chezza!!!! Haha! (sic)"
Considering Cheryl's currently sunning herself over in South Africa, we think it's fair to presume that didn't happen. Sorry, Mario.
It's definitely not from lack of trying on Mario's part, however. After hearing that his ex-girlfriend Pascal Craymer had been linked to Chezza's ex-husband Ashley Cole, the cheeky Essex star tweeted: "If this is true.... Then surely I can finally take out Cheryl!?? Haha ;)."
That being said, has Mario broken his celibacy vow already?
TOWIE viewers were surprised to see Mario enjoying a passionate snog with co-star Chloe Sims - the sister of his best friend Charlie Sims - during a night out last week; a kiss that was referenced on Sunday night's episode of the show.
According to Chloe, it was Mario who made the move on her – and she seemed rather pleased by it. Could there be a new TOWIE power couple on the block?
