He later added: "I have had a fantastic time on TOWIE and met some amazing people along the way. Some good memories and some bad, but all have helped me become the man I am.

"But I can confirm I have decided to leave the show and pursue some new adventures! Thank you for all your comments today. It means a lot #TOWIE #emotional."

A spokesperson for the ITVBe show said the door is open for Mario to return.
