Big Brother star Mario Marconi in 'assault' claim at Miss Manchester pageant

June 11, 2011

Big Brother star Mario Marconi phoned police during a beauty pageant at a top restaurant claiming he had been assaulted.

The body-builder, 45, shot to fame after appearing in series 9 of the fly-on-the-wall reality show in 2008 alongside his partner Lisa Appleton.

The couple were guests at the final of the - Miss Manchester competition held at Panacea in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, last night.

The M.E.N. can reveal that Mario, whose real name is Sean Astbury, called Cheshire Police from inside the restaurant to allege he had been assaulted.

Police confirmed today that officers were investigating his claim.

It is understood that Mario made the allegation after a disturbance with doormen. No injuries were reported.

A Cheshire Police spokesman said a 45-year-old man made a report of a 'minor assault'.

Mario, a civil servant who was born in Widnes, was unavailable for comment today.

Police were called to Panacea at 9.50pm last night.

The prestigious London Road restaurant was hosting the finals of the 2011 beauty contest and other celebrity guests included footballer and television pundit Robbie Savage.

Mario was the fourth contestant to be evicted from the Big Brother house in 2008.

A spokesman for Cheshire Police said today: “At 9.50pm on Thursday 9th June, Cheshire Police received a call from a 45-year-old man reporting an allegation of a minor assault that had taken place inside a bar on London Road, Alderley Edge.

“No injuries were reported to police and the circumstances of the incident are now being established.” - Source
