Mario Falcone, the star of Itv's hit show The Only Way is Essex, admits that he has slept with more than 500 women, despite being only 24-years-old. Falcone claims to have bedded 28 women during a two week holiday in Malta and confessed he had a night of passion with five women in one evening.
Despite being in a relationship with the show's Lucy Mecklenburgh, Mario was only too happy to dish on his romantic escapades to Now magazine, saying, "'People might frown on it, but I was a single young man, so I think it's acceptable. If one of my mates told me he's only slept with six girls, I'd be like "What? You've clearly been in a relationship too long". Falcone - dubbed the Italian Stallion - added, "'I've had two serious girlfriends - I was with them both for two years. But when we broke up, I'd go absolutely mental and make the most of being single".
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
