TOWIE star Mario Falcone has given us the dish on new girlfriend Sophie Lily and it seems like things look set to be pretty serious between the two.

Speaking to Reveal at the launch of Chloe Sims' Beauty Bar in Brentwood, Essex, he explained how much he likes Sophie: "I met her in Dubai and we went out everyday. I really like her and we get on really, really well. I'm flying out there three weeks today to see her for five days and I'm going back for the summer."

Sophie, who Mario revealed as his new love interest on This Morning, lives in Dubai. But the Essex lad told us the distance doesn't bother him: "I'll move to Dubai, who knows. It's very early stages, but I won't be getting with any other girls."

Loved-up Mario also admitted that he's not looking forward to Marbella this year. He told us: "No. (I'm not looking forward to it). I've obviously met someone I really like and I don't want to go out there and have fun. It's a different holiday for me this year. My memories of Marbella are getting engaged and getting red wine thrown at me, so I'm hoping for an easier ride this year."

He also added that he's not sure how long he'll be appearing in the Essex reality TV show: "I might not be in it for much longer. I don't know."

Despite Mario gushing about Sophie, we also asked Chloe, who had a fling with Mario in the last TOWIE series, her thoughts on his new squeeze.

When asked about Sophie, she said: "Not the girl with the dolphins? She was with Callum Best last month! Look on her Instagram, this is no word of a lie. She was all over Callum Best last month. I'm not romantically linked to him (Mario), but if I was, she wouldn't be a threat!"

Talk about confusing! We're not sure who to believe here...

As for the other exes in his life, Mario confirmed that there is no chance of a reconciliation with old flame Lucy Meck: "No, no way. We're done. I don't speak to her anymore."

But one person who definitely does have Mario's heart is his nephew Buzz, who his sister Giovanna Falcone and Tom Fletcher recently became parents to.

He explained: "I'm so obsessed. I love him so much. It's his fault that I want to settle down and have kids. Literally I love him so much and I'm so proud to be his uncle. He's a very good-looking baby. But he's a Falcone – what do you expect? It's his fault that I want to settle down and have kids."

Despite looking to settle down, Mario is definitely still up for a party. We spoke to him about Ed Sheeran, who recently revealed that he is a huge fan of TOWIE and Mario admitted that he'd love to go on a night out with him. "I'd take him to out to Sugar Hut, of course. It's awesome that he's a fan of the show."

That sounds like one night out we'd love to gatecrash!
