Mario's Big return

Mario is set to return to the 'Big Brother' house. The man mountain will reportedly enter the house on Sunday to propose to his girlfriend Lisa, and has already bought her an engagement ring.
A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Mario is really excited about getting to propose to Lisa. He has bought a ring and he can't wait to see her again."
Davina McCall will announce the shock visit after the live eviction tonight.
Mario was evicted from the show in week five, and admitted to Davina he was contemplating proposing to his sweetheart.
He later claimed he had planned to propose to her when they first went into the house, but the wedding task - which saw him pretend to be in a relationship with ex-housemates Stephanie - scuppered his plans.
He said: "It had been my plan to propose - and I had told someone at 'Big Brother'.
"Then, lo and behold, within ten minutes of entering the house, I was getting married."
This is not the first romantic gesture the beefy muscle man has made to Lisa - he once pawned his Rolex watch in order to pay for her to have a breast enhancement operation.
