TOWIE's Mario Falcone seems to be very smitten with his secret new girlfriend Sophie Lily, and she could be 'the one', according to his co-star Charlie Sims.

Charlie spoke about best mate Mario during the Reveal Online Fashion Awards last night (20 May), which was held at the exclusive DSTRK nightclub in London.

Mario will be reunited with Sophie in just eight days.

Reality star Mario confirmed his new romance during an interview on ITV's This Morning earlier this month (8 May), explaining that he met Sophie during a recent holiday in Dubai.

Mario said he was struggling to connect with someone like he did with ex-girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh - but explained that Sophie could be the girl to turn things around.

"As far as I'm aware, Mario really likes her," Charlie tells Reveal. "He's flying back out to see her and I've told him that sometimes you just have to give things a go. If she makes him happy, then it's great for him to go out there and spend some more time with her."

Mario is planning on visiting model and events organiser Sophie very soon, and will be jetting off to Dubai in just eight days to be reunited with her.

Charlie has been giving best friend Mario advice on Sophie Lily.

"Mario's going to go back over there on his own this time because the last time he was with friends," Charlie continues. "It's quite a long distance from the UK to Dubai but he can get to know her a bit more and see where it goes.

"I hope it does work out because I know he's beeen searching for love for a long time. Hopefully she's 'the one', but who knows, it's early days for him."

Things certainly look to be pretty serious between these two and Mario also recently told Reveal that he would be prepared to relocate to Dubai, where Sophie currently resides. "I'll move to Dubai, who knows," he said. "It's very early stages, but I won't be getting with any other girls."
