Mario Falcone admits he’s ‘finding it hard’ to see sister Giovanna in tears

Mario Falcone admitted he found it “hard” to watch his sister Giovanna Fletcher end up in tears over treats sent from home.

The former TOWIE star, 32, took to Instagram as he shared a meme of someone trekking into the castle on a mission to retrieve Giovanna’s treats from her loved ones.

During tonight’s instalment of the ITV show, Giovanna and the rest of the camp were given opportunities throughout the day to win treats from their families as well as camp dinners.

By the end of the day, the team came together to open a series of boxes with their keys and they were able to select who received a gift from home.

However, it quickly dawned on Giovanna that not everyone would be able to get a treat from home.

“Hard to watch tonight,” he wrote, alongside a heart emoji.

Naturally, fans rushed to the comment section to leave words of support for Mario, after an understandably difficult night of telly for him.

“I actually cried watching her tonight,” wrote one fan.

Another penned: “I think that was awful, she would be my first choice!!!!”

A third wrote: “Been fighting back the tears! Bless her heart.”

While a fourth agreed, adding: “My heart broke for her. Can’t imagine how tough that was for you to see.”

For the celebs to have been able to get their treats from home, they had to undergo a series of challenges throughout the episode that saw the team put through their paces for a chance to win a key.

Giovanna was tearful after she missed out on a treat from home

The podcaster – who is also camp leader – was up alongside Shane Richie, Beverley Callard and AJ Pritchard in a challenge called The Lion and the Serpent.

Jessica Plummer, Jordan North and Russell Watson faced a challenge called The Keys and the Dragon.

Vernon Kay, Ruthie Henshall, Mo Farah and Victoria Derbyshire also took on a challenge together.

Giovanna is really missing her family

Only AJ, Jordan and Giovanna were left empty handed while their campmates received things from their loved ones.

Giovanna – who is married to McFly star Tom Fletcher – later said in the Telegraph: “Your heart aches and then you attach yourself to anything.

“How lovely would it be to hear from Tom and the boys, just a sentence? It’s a sentence and I’m going to pretend each sentence anyone gets is from the kids and I’m going to adopt them like they’re mine.”
