Mario's birthday bump
Mario turned 43 today (09.06.08).
The muscle man - who is the oldest of this year's 'Big Brother' housemates - woke to choruses of "Happy Birthday" from his fellow housemates.
He said: "I'm 43, don't remind me."
Mario - who has been accused of domestic violence by an ex-lover - was cuddled by girlfriend Lisa who he has been reunited with after a task to keep their relationship secret was rumbled yesterday (08.06.08).
But the Matt Le Blanc look-a-like was not thrilled with his new sleeping arrangements after falling out of bed.
He told Rachel: "Lisa said move over. So I did and I fell out of bed."
Later this morning, self-styled playboy Rex asked Mario what he thought Big Brother had in store for him.
Mario told Rex about blind cross dresser Mikey's dream of a birthday cake behind bars.
Rex said: "Maybe it's symbolism. We get a task and if we pass it we get a party."
Mario added: "That'd be a real treat."
