The reality star was dumped by Danni on Sunday night's episode of the show and last night, she asked him to move out of their flat in Essex. Danni hadn't known Lockie wanted to propose to her in Marbella before she broke up with him, accusing him of being stressed and snappy and not treating her well.
Speaking to the official TOWIE website in Marbs, Lockie said: "I don't know where me and Danni are at the minute. We've had closure, a chat, an understanding we ain't good together at the minute so it's probably best for us to separate and split up for a while and take some time out.
"I will go and sort myself out which is probably for the best. That involves me moving out of the flat which I'm not happy about. I suppose it's one of those things that has to be done. Things will only settle in, the reality, when I get back to Essex and we do split up and I move out of the flat.
"I think we will get back together. I know I love her and she loves me. I think I can change her mind if I do the things she asked me to do, if I sort myself out. It's my fault. It's me who caused this with my mood swings and stuff. I think we will get back together one day and if all goes to plan we could have an engagement very soon."
On last night's episode of the show, we saw Danni breaking down in tears after Chloe revealed Lockie had brought an engagement ring to Marbs with him.
Danni said: "I'm just so frustrated. We are so close to having a good thing. I keep getting upset all the time. It's doing my head in. It's all changed. He's been such an asshole the last six months. He thinks just getting a ring and proposing to me out there would make all them hurtful things he's said and the last six months alright. I feel like a bad person."
She later approached Lockie at the beach to ask if the engagement ring claim was true. He told her: "I know things have been bad between us so it was sort of an all or nothing last bid to try to win you back. I wanted you to know I love you and I want to be with you."
Danni replied: "I know you love me. You don't have to propose for me to know that. I feel awful. I want to get home and you to move out of the flat, sort yourself out. Not for me, for you. I want you to be happy."
