Reality star Mario returned to filming at the end of last week, after his suspension ban for promoting slimming pills on social media was lifted.
Teasing last night's episode, Arg said: "Welcome back @Mario_Falcone. Who's excited for a brand new episode of @OnlyWayIsEssex tonight @ITVBe 10pm!?!?!?"
Mario replied: "Good to see you mate."
Mario was suspended in May, meaning he was unable to join his co-stars in Marbella for the start of the 15th series.
Mario told The Sun last week: "I was a bit gutted not to go to Marbs this year but, on reflection, having seen all the dramas they had out there it was probably a blessing in disguise.
"I am pleased to be back filming in Essex and looking forward to having some fun with the lads."
Mario will be back on our screens on Wednesday's episode.
TOWIE airs every Wednesday and Sunday at 10pm on ITVBe.
