TOWIE's James Lock and Danielle Armstrong might be going through a rough patch when it comes to their romance, but their co-stars are hopeful the couple can get through it.

Ahead of TOWIE returning to our screens with its Marbella special on Sunday, Reveal caught up with Georgia Kousoulou and Tommy Mallet to find out all the gossip from the cast's trip overseas.

While away, news came to light that James and Dani's romance could be on the rocks, with Tommy revealing Danielle was "actually quite upset" while holidaying with her castmates in Marbs.

Both Georgia and Tommy claimed they were just as clueless as us when it comes to Lockie and Dani, telling Reveal they're not sure what exactly has gone on to impact the couple's romance.

Tommy did, however, suggest things are pretty tense between the pair, telling us: "Danielle was quite upset because the boys were with Lockie a hell of a lot. I've known Lockie a long time, so he is obviously going to come to us with his problems. Danielle, I don't think she is as close to the girls, she was quite seperated from the rest of the girls."

Georgia argued she thinks Dani would come to her to talk about her problems with James, but said her co-star "kept herself to herself" for most of their time away in Marbella.

Seeking advice from her best pal Chloe Sims, a spokesperson for the ITVBe show revealed Dani and Chloe had been inseparable while on holiday, adding that Dani and her co-star beau are now trying to work through their issues.

Viewers will get to see the couple's recent relationship drama unravel onscreen as TOWIE makes its return on Sunday evening.

Last series, Georgia and Tommy faced their own romance woes as they were hit by cheating allegations. Knowing all too well what it's like to have their relationship played out on camera, we asked the pair if being on the show can be a lot of pressure.

"When things are good it's good because you get to tell the whole world about it," Georgia explained. "But when things are bad, you then have to be prepared to hear everyone's opinion, on Twitter and on Instagram, people even come up to you on the street. You never get used to it. Hopefully [James and Dani] are strong enough to get through whatever it is that they've got going on."

Georgia and Tommy, meanwhile, assured us things with them are absolutely fine after their ups and downs last series.

Hoping it can continue, Tommy's girlfriend said: "Everyone has to go through their ups and downs, it was really stressful for us. I hope to god touch my head (wood), it's not aggy like it was! But it's TOWIE! What happens, happens."

TOWIE returns Sunday 14 June on ITVBe.
