The reality star was left behind in Essex while the rest of his co-stars flew to Marbs at the weekend to begin filming for the twelfth series of TOWIE.
And yesterday, he admitted he wished he was there.
After co-star Dan Osborne tweeted to say he missed Lockie, the star replied: "Miss you too, son! Wish I was out there with ya causing havoc."
Instead, Lockie is off to cause havoc in Greece with a group of pals, retweeting one who said: "Safe to say it's gonna be a messy one!"
While Lockie is in Greece, girlfriend Danielle Armstong is over in Marbs with the rest of the TOWIE gang, looking fabulous poolside in an array of gorgeous bikinis.
Lockie's absence from the Marbella trip came after he pleaded not guilty to possession of a Class C drug.
James was arrested after a night out in Essex and he was also charged with criminal damage. The reality star has since appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to the charges. A source has said he's looking forward to clearing his name.
The new series of TOWIE stars 22 June on ITV2.
