Danielle Armstrong and James 'Lockie' Lock really are on amicable terms as she turned up to support her ex-boyfriend at the launch of his Lockie's Kitchen in Essex.

The glamorous Danni's Boutique owner posed for photos with Lockie at the Romford eatery on Monday night (22 February), showing they're back to being firm friends despite ending their relationship last year.

She and Lockie broke up last year and, after a tough patch, have managed to remain friends, with Danielle saying recently that their holiday to Gran Canaria to film scenes for series 17 had been great fun.

"We haven't really spoken about whether we get with other people in front of each other," she said. "It just hasn't happened yet. We've been quite responsible. We've been single for a few months now and we are both happy.

"I have quite a lot of respect for him and I wouldn't be all over another guy and cracking on in front of James, and I don't think he would do that in front of me. Well, he hasn't so far!

"It's nice we came away and we don't have any of that tension or horrible attitude between us."

Meanwhile, Lockie's Kitchen is open for business now. Lockie said last year: "It's about time that I grew up really. I was sort of going off the rails I think. I needed to sort myself out, for myself. So this has been something that I've dreamed about for ages, it's finally coming together."
