Falcone made his debut appearance on The Only Way Is Essex during the third series in 2011. Since then, he has become known for his on/off relationship with fellow cast member Lucy Mecklenburgh. In June 2012, they got engaged on screen during a The Only Way Is Marbs special, but then they called off their engagement during the seventh series of the show after several rumours were spread about Falcone cheating and Mecklenburgh deciding she was too young to get married. Their turbulent relationship finally ended off screen in February 2013. During the ninth series of the show, Mecklenburgh finally confronted Falcone, throwing a glass of red wine in his face after finding out that he had cheated on her twice. Mario Falcone returned to The Only Way Is Essex after coming 5th in the 12th series of Celebrity Big Brother.
On 13 August 2013, he launched his own online dating website.
On 22 August 2013, Falcone entered the Celebrity Big Brother house, competing in the twelfth series. He follows the footsteps of former The Only Way Is Essex cast members Kirk Norcross and Amy Childs. On 13 September 2013 he finished fifth and left the house with fellow housemate and sixth place Vicky Entwistle.
In June 2013, it was revealed that Falcone had attempted suicide by taking an overdose of "horrendously strong painkillers" following his split with Mecklenburgh.
