TOWIE's James Argent: "Ollie Locke is definitely not Sam Faiers' type"

TOWIE's James 'Arg' Argent has suggested that his co-star Sam Faiers would never go for Ollie Locke on Celebrity Big Brother because she prefers bad boys.

Arg was spotted out in London at the National Television Awards last night (22 January) and shared a few thoughts on Sam's love life, claiming that she has no interest in her CBB housemate Ollie.

He said: "I know Ollie, he's a lovely fella, but he's definitely not Sam's type. He's not Joey [Essex] and Sam's always liked the bad boy type thing. I know Joey's not that either, but Sam likes a bit of a geezer and that's not really Ollie."

We have to admit, we can see where he is coming from, especially given Sam's previous romances with confident Essex boys including Mark Wright, his cousin Elliott and TOWIE newcomer, Lewis Bloor.

Plus, the blonde boutique owner appeared to dismiss Ollie's crush earlier this week by insisting that she only sees him as a friend.

While he discussed the topic of love yesterday, Arg also commented on his relationship with ex-girlfriend Gemma Collins.

Arg thinks Sam isn't interested in Ollie on CBB

Last month, Gemma became engaged to her on-off boyfriend Rami Hawash and her former flame couldn't be happier for her.

Arg said: "Of course I'm happy for Gemma. She is a good friend of mine and we were always better suited as friends. I want her to be happy."

Coincidentally, the bubbly blonde was also on the red carpet at the NTAs last night and told us that she believes Arg will always love her.

Whether he is secretly still pining for Gemma or not though, Arg is ready to move on and bag himself a new lady.

He continued: "I'm single, I'm trying to lose weight and I'm moving out next week so I'm going to be in a good place to meet someone new.

"I'd like to say there was more going on in my love life, but there's nothing at the moment. Maybe I'll get Michelle Keegan to set me up with another Corrie star."

He and TOWIE co-star Tom Pearce then concluded by saying they were both "on the prowl". We can only imagine!
