TOWIE star James 'Lockie' Lock will not be suspended from the show following claims he racially abused two men on set.

Lockie has been cleared of the allegations after he was accused of saying the words "black f******" in a conversation with the two men while filming scenes at a pool party on 1 July.

TOWIE episode aired 28 June: Lockie


According to reports, the men in question did not complain, but witnesses allegedly heard the remarks and went to bosses. Lockie denied these allegations.

A rep for TOWIE has now confirmed to Mail Online: "We have concluded our thorough investigation and are satisfied that no racial abuse took place during filming on Wednesday 1st July."

On the last episode of the ITVBe reality show, Lockie was still dealing with the breakdown of his relationship with Danielle Armstrong, and she later confronted him in a club after accusing him of flirting with new cast member Verity Chapman.
