While the rest of us were glued to our screens as TOWIE's feisty newcomer Verity Chapman made her debut, Mario and Emma were busy seeing who could be named champ in a serious gaming session of Mario Kart on the playstation.
After pipping his girlfriend to the post, Mario joked it was inevitable he would win, after all, he does share the same namesake as the game's main man!
Taking to Instagram, Mario gave followers a glimpse into his life behind closed doors. Proving the life of a reality star isn't always glam parties and late nights, Mario is pictured playing playstation with Emma in bed. Sadly though, there were no cute puppies in sight!
Alongside his photo, the Essex boy told fans: "Mario Kart in bed with @emma_jane1392... I won... Then again my name is on the Box! Ha!"
His latest post comes after Mario surprised girlfriend Emma with a brand new puppy and little Oscar is just too cute for words, so we're incredibly jealous of the pair's new addition!
Not surprisingly, Emma fell head over heels for her pet pooch, even if he has been keeping her up all hours. They do say looking after a puppy is pretty similar to having a baby, could the pair be getting some practice in?
Things are getting pretty serious between them, after all!
Reveal caught up with Mario recently and he told us he and Emma are now looking for a house together.
Speaking about his romance with the model, he told us: "I'm at home with Emma every night, we've got a new puppy and we're buying a house."
Although the pair are living together currently - Emma moved in with Mario after returning to the UK (she used to work in Miami), getting a house of their own is a big commitment.
We asked Mario if this means he thinks Emma could be 'The One' and he said: "I'd like to think so. I wouldn't be with her if I didn't."
While things for the pair seem to be going from strength to strength, TOWIE fans won't get to see Emma onscreen as Mario admitted he is done with putting his romance on the show.
"I think I've done my time on TOWIE," he added. "I cheated, I got engaged, I got unengaged. They're not things I'd be able to go through again, especially with everyone watching."
