Mario Falcone reveals he kept his nose job a secret from Towie co-stars

WHILE Mario Falcone may be enjoying showing off his new nose, he admits he didn’t tell his co-stars he was going under the knife.

Appearing alongside Ferne McCann on This Morning, he said he had only confided in two people – his mum and his girlfriend.

Ferne – who has also spoken openly about having a nose job – said the first she had known of it was when a pal told her they had seen Mario sporting a bandage on his nose and she had texted him out of concern thinking he had been in a fight.

Mario explained: “I told my mum because she’s my best friend and if anything had gone wrong she would be my first person to call.


“I told my girlfriend because she took me to the hospital that day but the rest of my family I didn’t tell.”

He continued: “I used to hate taking selfies, the lighting was always wrong, the lighting… I just used to hate taking pictures.”

He recently told The Sun how he had decided to go under the knife after being bullied by some of his co-stars.

Mario explained: “I broke my nose playing football when I was 11.


“It didn’t bother me until five years ago when Arg and Diags picked on me about how big it was live on Towie.

“I’m proud of my Italian heritage – our nose is supposed to be a striking feature, like David Gandy.

“But everyone jumped on the bandwagon and I was bullied on social media for years, with people setting up Twitter accounts dedicated to slagging off my nose.”

He continued: “I got compared to Gonzo off The Muppets and Squidward off SpongeBob SquarePants.

“I became so insecure about it I turned down modelling shoots, and would even pose for my own clothing range.

“I was unhappy and depressed.”
