TOWIE star Danielle Armstrong has admitted she is finding her break-up with co-star James Lock difficult to deal with.

Since TOWIE returned to our screens with its latest series, viewers have watched Danielle and Lockie come to blows as they struggled to get past their relationship's issues.

Dani officially split with Lockie last month, but fans of the show have seen the reality star visibly emotional and upset on several occasions since. Reflecting on her break up last night, Danielle admitted: "No one said it would be easy."

The co-star couple finally called time on their romance, after a turbulent time during the TOWIE cast's trip to Marbella. Unaware that ex-boyfriend Lockie was preparing to propose, Danielle told him she needed the pair to go their separate ways.

She decided she needed to walk away from their relationship, despite still being in love with Lockie, after continuously feeling like he didn't treat her in the way that she deserved.

Suggesting she still has feelings for her former boyfriend of two-and-a-half years, Dani took to Instagram last night with a telling quote.

It read: "You let go of a toxic and unhealthy relationship not because you are weak, not because you no longer love the other person, but because you are strong enough to understand that there are times when two people will be a lot happier if they go their separate ways than if they stay together."

Danielle's Instagram post comes as ITV teases more drama is on the cards for Dani and Lockie in tonight's TOWIE finale.

Things have been tense between the former couple, after Dani called Lockie out for being disrespectful towards her and flirting with newcomer Verity Chapman.

Lockie had assured his former flame it was all innocent and nothing went on between himself and Verity. However, Verity later revealed James had asked her to have sex with him while the pair were on a night out together.

Dani and Lockie had managed to clear the air following the Verity incident, but Vas has revealed he has a video of Lockie that is set to cause fireworks.

He claims the clip is proof that James did make a move on Verity and has threatened to show the video to prove his best friend isn't lying.

Sounds like there is yet more heartache in store for Dani...
