London, Nov 25 (ANI): 'TOWIE' star Mario Falcone, who was up North in Manchester - away from his Essex hometown - joined Mario Balotelli footballer for a meal.
However, it seemed that fashion was the common denominator with the beefy men treated to dinner by Risk couture.
Whilst the Man City ace features in their latest ad campaign wearing a T-shirt that says 'Not only am I perfect but I'm Italian too', the reality star is a representative for the brand.
The two Marios also come from an Italian background, the Daily Mail reported.
Supporting Movember and growing out his brown hair, Falcone could have been mistaken for The Voice's Tyler James.
With his hair-raising look he seemed to have had a great night, as he tweeted: "Had a good dinner in San Carlo last night with @Riskcouture,Ballotelli and the boys... So tired now though! Paris bound!"
Before making the trip across the Channel, Falcone met up with his girlfriend Lucy who was in Manchester at the same time.
She, however, arrived a few days later but made sure she got to see her man before he jetted off to France. (ANI)
