Pictures from the set yesterday show the usually friendly Lockie and Elliott locking heads and having seeming to have a serious disagreement while filming at Plaza Beach, as Danielle Armstrong and Chloe Sims look on.
It comes as a surprise because Lockie and Elliott have seemed inseparable on this jaunt to Marbella, being photographed hanging out together loads over the past week.
They were even seen happily sharing a laugh together while chatting with Dani and Chloe just before the argument happened.
What on earth?!
A source told us tempers flared because the guys have both been having difficulties in their relationships: Lockie with Dani and Elliott with ex-girlfriend Chloe, who he came face to face with again in Marbs.
Our insider said: "The tension led to a bit of pressure on their friendship and they ended up having a few words with each other. It wasn't physical, just a bit of shouting."
There's no word yet on what happened to prompt this change of mood but no doubt we'll find out on Sunday night when TOWIE returns to ITVBe for its brand new series.
We do not that things haven't been so rosy between Lockie and Danielle since they touched down in Marbs, with a source telling us they're trying to work through a rocky patch in their relationship.
Our insider told us Danielle's been leaning on Chloe for support and we know Chloe and ex-boyfriend Elliott have been growing closer again. Was the Lockie/Elliott fight something to do with Lockie and Dani then?
TOWIE returns Sunday, 14 June at 10pm on ITVBe.
