TOWIE’s Mario Falcone fancies Strictly “because of the clothes”

The open shirts appeal to The Only Way Is Essex star

The Only Way is Essex’s Mario Falcone has revealed he fancies a go on BBC1 dance contest Strictly Come Dancing “because of the clothes”.


“I like the little open shirts, get the six pack out,” Mario told as he discussed which reality shows he’d be up for taking part in.

He’s already done Celebrity Big Brother, placing fifth in 2013’s twelfth series. So that’s one down.  

And if he was to don the rhinestones to bust out a Tango or two, Mario wouldn’t be the first familiar face from TOWIE to hit the Strictly dance floor. Former cast member Mark Wright took part just last year, placing fourth with his pro partner Karen Hauer.  

But Mario admitted he’s not been approached to take part yet.

“No, not yet, no. They haven’t seen me cut my s**t on the dance floor have they?” he teased. And, of course, he’s busy himself with filming on the Essex-based show following his recent suspension

The line-up for the dancing competition remains unknown as the BBC stays tight-lipped about this year’s contestants. Singer Peter Andre and weather reporter Carol Kirkwood are among the rumoured dancers, with sources telling us to expect names to be more “heartland BBC” than last year.
