TOWIE star Bobby Norris is on a mission to bag himself a man, but what exactly is he looking for when it comes to love? Spoiler: James Lock.

Yup, Bobby has admitted his dream man would be somebody that resembles his co-star Lockie.

Catching up with him ahead of TOWIE's new series, Bobby told us: "A gay Lockie would be ideal for me."

Who knew?!

Bobby explained that this year he is turning 30 and to mark the milestone, he wants to find that special person to share it with. Bobs has enlisted the help of Danielle Armstrong and Chloe Sims and you may have seen the hashtag '#FindBobbyAFella' doing the rounds on Twitter.

Basically the girls are seeking out potential suitors for their co-star.

Bobby explained: "I'm turning 30 this year and I'm having a bit of a mid-life about it, so Danni and Chloe were like, 'Now is the time we are going to get our Cilla Black on and try and find Bobby a guy.' They're on a mission to find me a fella."

Before they could get started, though, Danielle revealed she and Chloe had to find out Bobby's type and she was bemused to hear that he's after someone exactly like her ex, Lockie.

"We had to find out what Bobby's type was and it's hilarious... it's basically James," she told us. "Tall, dark, handsome, funny, speaks a little bit East London like Danny Dyer and Ross Kemp - I was like so basically that's James then."

We wonder what Lockie makes of Bobby's admission?!

Reveal caught up with Bobby and Danielle ahead of TOWIE's new series.

As well as channelling Lockie, Bobby revealed there was one major attribute his future boyfriend had to have.

While Pete Wicks joked they'd need to be "hung like a donkey," Bobby didn't exactly deny it, but he did stress his new man has to be able to make him laugh.

"Above all, more than anything, a guy would have to be able to make me laugh," he gushed. "I find funny people so attractive. That's the biggest quality in someone.

"Someone with a bit of ambition too. I like someone who will get up and go to work, I like a grafter. Don't get me wrong, on a day off it's nice to watch This Morning at half past 10, but I want someone who's got a bit of drive."

So, did anyone fit the bill?

Right now our Essex faves aren't giving too much away, but Danni did tease: "We spoke to a few guys, so you'll get to see a few people that we introduced to Bobby a few episodes in."

We can't wait to see who!

TOWIE returns Sunday 28 February at 10pm on ITVBe.
