EXCLUSIVE: TOWIE Star Says Writer and Vlogger Hurry to Win Latest Series of I’m a Celebrity’ Saved My Life When I Was at My Lowest Level ‘

Giovanna Fletcher’s brother Mario Falcone has revealed that she saved his life after a suicide attempt, admitting: “I owe him everything”

The former TOWIE star opened up about her popular campmate sister in an exclusive interview with the Sunday People, after turning her life around and becoming a father

Mario, 32, said: “People might not know it, but Giovanna literally saved my life when I was at my lowest level

“Eight years ago I was going through a very difficult time going through a very public breakup I was getting a lot of hate on social media and I felt really supported in a corner – like this was the only way out “

He has previously shared how he tried to kill himself by taking pills with champagne after breaking up with his fiancée Lucy Mecklenburgh, his co-star at TOWIE, in 2012

When he woke up the next morning relieved that he had been sick, he vowed to ask for help

He explained: “Giovanna was amazing – amazing It was clear that she was very shocked and upset But in crisis she goes into super organized mode

“She knew exactly what I had to do and where I needed to go She set four days of counseling with a Harley Street doctor in London early on and ten more appointments over the weeks.

“It really made a difference for me She encouraged me to talk to people and not to keep things bottled It saved my life – without a doubt”

Mario, who has just recovered from a hernia operation, found love again with makeup artist Becky Miesner in August 2016

But the sleep-deprived couple began to fall dramatically when their newborn refused to sleep through the night

Once again, Giovanna – who has children Buzz, six, Buddy, four and Max, two with McFly star Tom Fletcher – came to the rescue

Mario said: “When you have a child for the first time you have this vision that it is going to bring you closer and make you stronger I think the opposite – the child is going to push you both to the breaking point

“Giovanna’s advice saved our relationship in those early days. She told me ‘anything that is said angrily between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. doesn’t count”

“She took me under her wing She said you have to be a team. As a man you don’t realize how your partner goes through growing the baby in him, giving birth, postnatal depression

“She literally told me the right things to say and do. Without that advice it really would have pushed Becky and I to the brink, so it saved us”

He added: “So many moms and celebrities who are moms in particular try to pretend everything is perfect They all carry on like Superwoman But they never show all the struggles G always did both”

Before I was a celebrity, the pair caught up every day on the phone or in person

But although he misses her now, he joked to her husband, Tom had drawn the short straw to take care of their children

He laughed, “I think Tom has a harder time at home If you told me you could eat a mutton d *** or stay home for three weeks with three kids, I would take the d ***. *** every time One hundred percent “

Mario also opened up about his sister’s friendship with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, whom she interviewed about motherhood, for her Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast

He teased, “Who knows, we might see Kate and William make an appearance with Team G t-shirts on”

Mario also shared how his two sisters (also Georgina, 37) dressed him as a girl when he was little so he could be in their girl group

Giovanna is one of the favorites to be crowned queen of the castle

Earlier this week, she organized the camp after her compatriot Ruthie Henshall won 12 luxury items for the camp by hiding and performing secret tasks

She told her campmates: “I know you guys are all really excited about my luxury item So I thought of something to cheer us up, and to give us a bit of a boogie – S Club 7 Reach “

The camp then went crazy as they started dancing and singing to the classic song of the party

She hasn’t tried it yet, with viewers choosing Jordan North and Shane Ritchie
