Earlier this week, it was confirmed that Mario has been temporarily suspended from filming with his TOWIE co-stars after The Sun claimed to have footage of him snorting a white powder off of a kitchen table.
The footage is alleged to have been shot two months ago while Mario was with friends. He is yet to comment on the accusation.
Last night, however, Mario took to Twitter and posted a message about his family, saying that he felt "blessed" to have them.
He said: "I really am blessed with the best family I could ever wish for... Love them all so much! X."
Mario's cast mates are currently filming the first few episodes of series 12 in Marbella, Spain. The new series starts on Sunday 22 June.
