Mario Falcone lands home in UK after 'pretending' he was 'never in Dubai'
TOWIE'S Mario Falcone has landed home in UK after 'pretending' he was 'never in Dubai'.
The reality star has updated his Instagram followers with his arrival as he posted Stories of himself chilling at home with his family.
Mario, 32, shared photos of himself relaxing on the sofa with his son, two-year-old Parker.
The doting dad also uploaded a video of him giving the toddler a bath before watching as Parker did some painting with his fiancee Becky Miesner.
And it appeared that Becky was also adopting the same tactic as she shared the simple routine of making her Sunday morning coffee with her own followers.
Earlier this week Mario was accused of a posting a picture of himself in Essex – when he was really out in Dubai.
The dad-of-one uploaded a picture of him sat in his garden in the UK but a video of him in the sunshine suggested he was actually abroad.
An onlooker told the Mail, who published the video: "It's bad enough the influencers who are out here trying to defend themselves as some have.
"But to slip over here and leave all your Instagram followers thinking that you're back home shivering with everyone else in England during lockdown is outrageous."
The family were staying at the £250-a-night Jumeirah Zabeel Saray Hotel, the Mail reports.
On Thursday, Becky posted a photo of her wrapped up in a coat and wellies around the same time period the video is claimed to be shot.
But in the footage Mario is seen in shorts and a T-shirt with Becky in a summery dress pushing their two-year-old's pram.
It is believed the family left Dubai on Friday morning.
The Mail quotes a friend of the couple who said Becky was in Dubai for a meeting related to her beauty business and that Mario had gone there for 48 hours to look after Parker.
The Sun Online has contacted a rep for Mario.
The UAE, of which Dubai is a part, has been added to Britain's quarantine 'red list' amid a spike in coronavirus cases.
Direct flights are now on hold meaning Brits – including any Instagram stars out in Dubai – will only be able to make their trips back via third countries.
Earlier this week Mario questioned the incoming quarantine rules, tweeting: "So with this ‘hotel quarantine’ idea. Will lorry drivers bringing food In have to? Football teams in the European cups?
"Pilots and cabin crew? What stops people just leaving? A fine? By force? Are the hotels ventilation systems not going to pass the virus around?"
