Speaking to Reveal at Binky Felstead's In The Style launch, Mario admitted he's now officially single after breaking up with his girlfriend Emma.
"I'm single now. I broke up with her a couple of weeks ago" he told us, revealing that the couple had worked hard to keep their relationship on track since reuniting after a brief split in August, but it wasn't meant to be.
"We tried everything, but I just wasn't happy" he said. "We argued too much. Sometimes you can try and work at something and it just doesn't work out."
Rumours of a split began after fans were left concerned by Emma's messages on Twitter suggesting the pair had broken up, she tweeted: "You desperate little boy." Before adding: "Respect. It's a shame some people clearly don't have it."
Although Mario didn't go into specifics, Emma claimed her former flame had been messaging other girls behind her back, saying: "Another one to add to the collection nothing shocks me. Girls and screenshots..."
The former TOWIE star admitted that he's not a huge fan of the single life, saying: "I haven't missed being single but I'm going to embrace it now I am. You have to play the card you're dealt."
And as a proud uncle to Buzz, his sister Giovanna's super cute tot, Mario confessed he'd "love" a family of his own, saying: "Buzz takes after me with how cute he is. I would love to have that but I don't want to rush into something with the wrong person. It will happen when it happens."
Although before anyone rushes to Mario's hometown of Brentwood in hope of finding him on Tinder, he assured us there's "no chance" he'll sign up. Sob.
Mario's looking on the bright side though, he told us "The only way is up!" Wonder where he got that line from?!
