Mario Falcone was noticeably absent from the last series of TOWIE but these pictures prove he's back!

The reality star had already told fans he was jetting off to Ibiza to begin filming the brand new series of the Essex show, and now he's been pictured on the island with his castmates.

Back in the fold: out last night with Gemma and Charlie.

No doubt there are PLENTY of very happy TOWIE fans right now!

Mario, 26, took a break from TOWIE last series to take care of "personal issues" but had been negotiating a return for the new series, which kicks off next momth on new channel ITVBe.

Clearly the negotiations turned out well!

Mario was pictured arriving at an Ibiza bar earlier in the day.

Mario was pictured being the gentleman and escorting co-star Gemma Collins to a cast dinner on Sunday night (21 September), held Lio's restaurant on the White Isle. They arrived alongside Mario's best friend Charlie Sims and Charlie's girlfriend Ferne McCann.

Though, we must say, he didn't look too happy! Tired, perhaps?!

The last time TOWIE fans saw Mario on our screens was just after his secret romance with Chloe Sims had been uncovered. We watched as their brief fling ended as quickly as it seemed to start, with the pair vowing to remain friends.

Whatever happens this series, we reckon Essex (and Ibiza!) will be a far livelier place with Mario back in the fold...
