While Mario's co-stars spent the last 10 days basking in the sun in Marbella, Mario recently escaped to Portugal with model girlfriend Emma.
After telling fans yesterday that the pair were enjoying a "lovely evening", Mario has continued to share photos of his romantic stay with fans.
In one snap, the Italian tailor happily holds Emma by the waist as they pose in front of a backdrop of the waterfront and harbour. And Emma looked stunning in a flowing white maxi dress, with her brunette locks draped over her shoulder.
Mario didn't join his co-stars in Marbs because he was suspended from the show for promoting slimming pills on social media.
Mario confirmed the reason behind his suspension when a fan asked him on Twitter, but recently, a TOWIE producer said there was "hope" Mario would return in series 15 to continue filming.
They told The Sun: "We have to be very strict about that. We hope Mario will be back but, if he isn't, we will be perfectly fine with that."
