For the past few days, TOWIE cast members have been turning up at Pinewood Studios in their droves to film an advert for new TV channel ITVBe.
The channel will be home to the reality show when the new series returns this autumn and, judging by Mario's photo, it seems he too will appear in the promotional clip.
In June, Mario was temporarily suspended from TOWIE, meaning he was unable to join his co-stars in front of the cameras in Marbella and for the rest of series 12.
Since then, TOWIE bosses have confirmed that Mario was taking "time out to address personal issues" while he revealed he had "gone off the rails" following an excessive partying stint.
Last month, Mario spoke to the Sun On Sunday and said: "I have been seeking professional assistance and am now fit and well. I hope that the producers and ITV will see my genuine remorse and consider allowing me to return to the show."
After tweeting the photo of himself at Pinewood Studios yesterday, Mario's fans were quick to suggest he was back. One commented: "OMGG HES BACK IN TOWIE!!!!" Another added: "Eeewkkkkkkk mario must b back #cantcope."
Clarifying the current situation, a TOWIE spokesperson told Reveal: "The production team are in contact with Mario and he is taking steps to secure a return to the show."
