Mario Falcone's girlfriend regrets TOWIE appearance
Mario Falcone's girlfriend regrets her single appearance on 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The 'TOWIE' star had previously insisted Emma McVey wouldn't be on the show with him, but she was featured in his recent 27th birthday celebrations, only to be bombarded with abusive online messages.
He said: "It was my birthday party on the show and to reflect reality, my girlfriend would have been there so she popped along for a drink. She won't be coming on again.
"She was very reluctant and I think she regrets it now because of how horrible social media is.
"She messaged me saying, ' I wish I'd never done it people are so horrible and I don't know how people can be like this.' "
Despite the troublesome trolls which have seen Emma leave Essex to be with her family in Leeds, Mario insists their romance is stronger than ever.
He told new! magazine: "I can relate to how she is feeling so I can only reassure her.
"When you love someone, you want them to be happy, so if she's happier being with her family and friends and not having the pressure of being round here, then that's fine.
"It doesn't put a strain on our relationship. If anything, it makes us stronger."
