We asked him if he’d been able to watch sister Giovanna Fletcher while she takes part on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

And Mario told us: “Yes. I'm still in pain but home now so will watch while I’m trying to rest. When I was in hospital I got to watch her every night as well which helped.”

The star shared multiple snaps from his hospital bed earlier this week, but has kept coy about the procedure he underwent.

In one photo shared to his Instagram stories, Mario gave a thumbs down sign, with a drip in his arm. He captioned the photo: “Feel like poo but get to go home soon!”

The ex-TOWIE star shares son Parker, two, with partner Becky Miesne. Earlier this week the star shared a video of parker that Becky had sent while he was in hospital. In the sweet clip, Parker is seen telling his dad he loves him.

Now he’s home and resting, the star told us he’s excited to keep up with sister Giovanna’s time on I’m A Celebrity, and that the whole family was routing for her.

Reacting to the news that Giovanna would be on the show earlier this month, Mario posted a sweet snap of the pair together. He captioned the photo, “So excited to see my sister on @imacelebrity. She will be so amazing!

"I have been so lucky to have 2 amazing sisters that I have grown up being so close to. Through trials and tribulations we have always been there for one another.

Earlier this week, Giovanna’s husband, Tom Fletcher, let slip that the star had a “secret signal” to her children while she takes part on the show.

The McFly star also warned that his wife could get “cranky” when she is hungry, so it could be a challenge for the author and podcaster if the camp don’t win enough stars.

Tom, who has taken over Giovanna’s Instagram account while she is on the show, has also shared a sweet snap of their sons saying goodbye to her before she left for Wales.
