Lockie’s (Towie) Relationship History – Who Has He Dated?

James ‘Lockie’ Lock is what you’d call a lad’s lad. More commonly known as ‘Lockie’ (Towie) , he’s straight-talking, banter-loving and enjoys nothing more than winding up his best pals Pete Wicks and Dan Osborne – but don’t be fooled, if you rub him up the wrong way, Lockie will DEFINITELY bite back, hard.

The Towie heartthrob can be relied upon for great banter but even better barneys. And when it comes to his love life, things follow a similarly turbulent story…

Danielle Armstrong And James Lock

We couldn’t contain our excitement when Danielle and Lockie first started dating on Towie.

They Quickly Broke Up…

Unfortunately, just a few months into their relationship, allegations emerged that Lockie had cheated and the blonde bombshell ended things swiftly.

We all watched the drama unfold as the couple met in a park (cameras rolling, of course) and Lockie confesses he did, in fact, cheat on Danielle, but is determined to win her back.

They They Were Back On!

Next thing we knew, the couple were seemingly back together when they hit the What If red carpet looking pretty smitten. Followed by a series of sweet Snapchat pics confirming to fans that they were well and truly back on.

Then They Were Off Again…

Then (possibly the most awkward moment in Towie history), a romantic dinner date in Marbs between the couple went disastrously wrong as Danni calls things off with Lockie, just as he is about the pop the question.

Danni announced that the couple had officially parted ways on her Twitter page and sadly (and surprisingly) they haven’t got back together since.

Then There Was Yazmin Oukhellou…

When Lockie and Yazmin got together, they quickly became one of Essex’s most loved power couples – they even had matching tattoos!

How James and Yazmin met…

Yazmin’s famous brother, Adam Oukhellou, was already pals with James, so it was through mutual connections that the couple ended up meeting.

James joked:

“You can’t just start cracking on with your mate’s sister because it’s a liberty! But at Christmas we saw each other at Sheesh and she came back to a party with me. We got talking.”

Then They Joined Towie Together…

Obviously Lockie was on Towie originally, but when Yaz started dating Danielle’s ex, they took their romance to another level when she joined Towie as his official GF.

The couple admitted that because the show was such a huge part of James’ life, Yaz would probably need to join him on it. So, she met with the producers and they liked her. Lockie said:

“I was nervous about having another relationship on the show but you just need to be self-aware so your relationship isn’t affected.”

Despite countless split rumours, the pair seemed to be doing OK having discussed getting married, proposals and starting a family on ITVBe’s Towie.

“We haven’t discussed getting engaged, I think it’s early days. I think doing that jinxes things,”

“But we have spoken about our future. We know we’re not in it for the short term. I see us being together forever.”

Sadly, They Called It A Day…

In September, Yaz revealed the real reason behind her shock split from James Lock – he supposedly cheated during an after party with a group of women in Turkey.

“We had an argument and then James went out with some random guys and left me alone in the hotel room.

I then got a message on Instagram from a girl who said James had gone to a room with a group of girls and guys nine doors down.

I was then banging on the door like a lunatic and he wouldn’t answer or come out of the room. Saw three girls come out of the room, one of them pulling their knickers up.”

“At first he said he wasn’t in that room and he was in a different room. But then he admitted he was but said he had passed out. He said he didn’t do anything but I doubt they were playing Monopoly.

Whether he did cheat or not our relationship died that night. I was on the floor being sick and crying my heart out and he still didn’t come home until 12pm the next day.

My gut says he cheated. I don’t know why he wouldn’t come back if he hadn’t. He was thinking of his lies. I had all his things packed for him waiting at the door.”
