TOWIE's Bobby Norris has said co-star James 'Lockie' Lock struggles to open up about his feelings because of his "pride".

Bobby talked about his friendship with James and how he dished out some advice for the show's Christmas special.

In The Only Way Is Essexmas, viewers will see Lockie (with Bobby and Pete Wicks in tow), head down to Scotland to see Danielle.

Lockie and Danni have a make or break conversation about their on-and-off relationship, and it all gets too much as she breaks down in tears.

Danni has already told Reveal that Lockie opens up to her about his feelings, something which he doesn't do very often.

"I think that's the thing with Lockie, because he's such a lad he doesn't really know how to open up or express himself," Bobby tells us. "He won't really tell Danni things because he's such a man and has got his barriers up, it's such a pride thing.

"But me and James have got such a lovely relationship. I can tell him anything and he can do the same with me. We had a lovely chat in Scotland and I said to him, 'What you're saying to me, tell Danni because you don't word it like that. You don't tell her how you really feel'. I think he took a bit of advice and they had a lovely little chat, which is nice."

In Scotland, old wounds resurface for Danni but she later resolves that it's finally time to bring closure to their situation, something which she has previously called "very messy" and "complicated".

Talking about their emotional heart-to-heart, Danni reveals: "He opened up to me quite a lot in Scotland and I'm never used to that. It was nice to hear him open up a bit because he never tells me how he feels."

The Only Way Is Essexmas airs Wednesday 16 December at 10pm on ITVBe.
