The cast are currently out in Marbs filming for the brand new series, and newly-released pictures show exes Danielle and Lockie having a chat at a bar on Tuesday.
Things seem to be civil for the former couple, as Danielle - who looked stunning in a plunging cobalt blue dress - spoke to Lockie over drinks.
Before heading off to Marbs, Lockie said he wanted to get back to having a good friendship with Danielle. Do these new pictures mean the pair making tracks to being friends again?
Lockie said last month: "We want to be civil. I have a lot of time for Danielle. Before me and Danielle went out as boyfriend and girlfriend, we were really good friends, and I want to get back to that state. I don't know if me and Danielle could ever be together again, but I do enjoy her company. I do enjoy Danielle as a person. She is a good friend to me and we still speak."
Lockie and Danielle split in the last series, just as he had been preparing to propose to her in Marbs. In the series finale, things came to a head as they finally had it out over the proposal plans and what went wrong in their relationship.
They both agreed that they needed to move on and said they would cut down their contact.
Speaking about Lockie over the summer, Danielle said: "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. We both know we can't be together so that's what it is."
The new series of TOWIE returns on Sunday 4 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
