Danielle admitted that when she dumped Lockie in Marbella, she'd never thought she would lose him altogether. Meanwhile, Lockie said buying an engagement ring before Marbs had been a mistake.

The pair mutually agreed that they both needed to move on and cut down their contact.

Now speaking in a new video on the TOWIE website, Danielle revealed: "The boy is obsessed. As soon as we had the conversation and said we were going to cut all contact, he asked me round for dinner that night. I said no.

Danielle and Lockie split in the last series.

"To be honest, we haven't actually seen each other since the carnival. He has texted me and there's been a few exchanged messages. He was messaging me a couple of times in Marbs and he actually called me when he was in Ocean club. He sounded quite drunk to be fair, and was saying, 'Are you ok? I just want to make sure you're OK?' He just keeps texting me saying 'Are you OK?' but I do get that because I have been an emotional wreck. We both know we can't be together so that's what it is."

Danielle, who said that she's "turned into the Essex version of Bridget Jones", also said that when she's ready to start dating again, she would go for someone different to Lockie.

TOWIE's Danielle Armstrong speaks about her split with Lockie. 4 August 2015.


"I'd have to go with someone completely opposite," she admitted. "He'll be 33, has got his own career and is just more comfortable in himself. He doesn't feel that he's got to go out and flirt with birds and be a party boy and macho and all this alpha male stuff. Someone who's more in touch with his feminine side and knows how to treat a girl… Maybe someone out of Essex as well?"

Danielle is now preparing to let her hair down in the next two weeks when she and a group of friends – including TOWIE co-star Jessica Wright – head to Las Vegas.

Danielle said: "It's me and five to six girls. Jess has just booked on. She broke her wrist on those stupid segway things. She's coming to Vegas even with a broken wrist."
