You Ask: Have Mario & Lisa Been On TV Before?
We've been receiving a steady flow of e-mails from fans all
week asking: 'Is Mario an actor because he seems really familiar?'
Well, he isn't actually an actor, but it transpires that he's
something of a regular on TV.
For he appeared on Ant & Dec's 'Saturday Night Takeaway'
pretending to be Joey from Friends, aka American actor Matt
Bodybuilder Mario – real name Shaun Astbury –
also appeared on Bravo's 'Brits Behind Bars' last year, having
presumably portrayed himself as some kind-of bad boy/ minor
criminal to get on the show.
The 43-year-old, who thinks he looks like Sly Stallone and
claims to have been mistaken for Diana's former butler Paul
Burrell before, is rumoured to have appeared on Wife Swap
and Duel too.
Lisa is no stranger to TV either, having appeared as a contestant
on BBC2's 'Kitchen Criminals' cookery show. She is also rumoured
to have been on Gladiators, Goldenballs and Fear Factor.
Other shows mentioned by BB fans as possible places the pair
have popped-up are: Jeremy Kyle, This Morning, Prison Break,
Deal or No Deal and Jerry Springer, although – as with
the rumoured shows above – we can't validate this, so
it may not be true.
Suffice to say though, that Mario and Lisa are definitely
TV Contestant junkies who like to have their 15 minutes of
fame... again and again!
