Dan and Lockie were the original bromance on the Essex scene, but since it came to light he had left the show in April last year, Dan has been replaced by new boy on the block Pete.
Following the arrival of the tattooed charmer, Pete won over the hearts of TOWIE fans thanks to his adorable friendship with best pal Lockie. We've seen them confide in each other, banter each other and even share a bed together! But what does Dan make of it all?
We finally got to hear his thoughts on Lockie and Pete, when a fan tweeted that he must be 'heartbroken' over Lockie's new friendship (we say new, but Lockie and Pete were good friends before he joined TOWIE).
One fan on Twitter had said Lockie and Pete have the "best bromance" on TV since Joey and Chandler from Friends. On seeing their comment, another tagged Dan and tweeted: "Poor old @DannyO he must be heart broken."
Dan's reply? "Took me a while to get my head around... But I'm just happy for them now," he tweeted.

The fan then urged Dan to return to TOWIE and give Lockie an ultimatum: "I'd feel totally betrayed! come back and make him choose #TOWIE."
Another said: "You don't need Lockie anymore.. Total betrayal."
Despite Dan not appearing on the ITVBe reality show anymore, he and James have stayed good friends - and it's pretty clear these recent tweets were all in jest.
Still, we would have loved to have seen what Lockie and Pete had to say for themselves, wouldn't you?
Dan's tweet comes after he recently supported James at the opening of his new restaurant, Lockie's Kitchen. He joined a whole host of our TOWIE faves at the event, as well as Pete's new flame Megan McKenna and I'm A Celebrity winner Vicky Pattison.
