THE Only Way Is Essex star Mario Falcone has rushed his son to hospital after the two-year-old got sweetcorn stuck up his nose.
The 33-year-old reality star had to endure four-hours in A&E as he waited for little Parker to be seen by the specialist doctor.

Taking to his Instagram stories in the early hours of Sunday morning, Mario told fans the family waited there late into the night waiting for a specialist.
“We’ve had a very eventful evening,” the reality star began, as fiancée Becky Miesner and son Parker walked alongside him out of the hospital.
“Parker, at dinner time, got a little bit of sweetcorn stuck in his nose – so we tried everything but it didn’t do anything,” he continued.
“So we took him to A&E and waited four hours to see someone, and two minutes before before we could see the ear, nose and throat specialist, he coughed and sneezed it out himself.

“Parker thought he needed an ambulance when we were at home, he was asking for an ambulance, but yes, quarter-past-eleven on Saturday night.”
Smiling at the camera, Mario joked towards his fiancée: “Have kids, they said. It’ll be fun, they said. She wants another one, she says.
He went on to post a sweet picture of his son holding the pesky piece of sweetcorn in his hand after coughing and sneezing it out.
Dad-of-one Mario wrote: “So after 4 hours in A&E waiting to have a little piece of sweet corn removed from his nose he ended up coughing and sneezing it out himself!”

It comes weeks after Mario admitted he’s swapping his six pack for a beer belly since becoming a dad, despite working out everyday.
The former Towie star also insisted he needs to exercise after his mental health struggles to be a “better version of himself” for son Parker.
He said: “As parents we have this whole thing where your kids become your life, which is fine. But you still need to take time for yourself.
“So in the morning I get up and train for that one hour I need. It’s not so I have a six pack, because I don’t.Those days are long gone. I’ll settle for my beer belly any day. It’s more the mental aspect of it. “

Mario opened up about his mental health battle and how he goes as far as to switch his off phone in the evening and go for a walk to reset himself.
Speaking to Dancing on Ice semi-finalist Ben Hanlin’s parenting podcast Ben Behaving Dadly, he said: “It is that routine and feel good factor. Even in the evening I will go for a walk on my own when Parker has gone to bed.
I’ll leave my phone at home and just reset and think things through. Before Parker I never had a hobby. Now I play golf. Typically I go once or twice a week.
Because I’ve had my time, when I do come home I jump in and I’m ready to be dad. I’d rather be a better version of myself for the hours I am there than be resentful.”
