Fans of the show found out that Danielle Armstrong had been caught getting up close and personal with another guy in a video posted to social media - despite criticising her ex-boyfriend James Lock for moving on and doing so for her to see.
Josh was the guy Danni was with in the video. A friend of his had posted the clip to Twitter last week, along with the tweet: "Did you forget about this @Daniarmstrong88. @JamesLock_ she's not so innocent."
Viewers saw the fallout from the video on last night's episode of TOWIE. Chloe Meadows dropped the news about the video to Chloe Lewis, telling her that "Lockie had gone mad."
He, meanwhile, revealed he wasn't annoyed at Danni, he was more angry with the person that had chosen to upload it. Lockie said: "I spoke to [Danni] and she was in bits really, she was really upset and she apologised. I haven't lost any respect for her, I just feel a bit sorry for her. He's actually wound me up this geezer... a real man wouldn't do that. It just shows the character of the person."
Danni admitted she had hoped the video wouldn't have been made public and claimed she didn't understand why someone would choose to post it on Twitter.
She said: "I don't really get why the video got uploaded... it might be boys' banter or something. I don't think they knew that James knew about the guy I was talking to."
Danni added: "I didn't want that coming out obviously. It's not nice for him to see. I do feel bad for him, I know what it's like... I'm finding it really tough at the minute. It's just made me doubt myself about whether I've made the right decision."
At that point, Josh took to Twitter to point out that he hadn't been the one to share the video. He tweeted: "Hmmmm I didn't film it just thought [I'd] put that out there... anyway nice that #TOWIE had a story of me for you guys, until next time, peace."

Josh and Danni getting close comes after she called out Lockie for flirting with newcomer Courtney Green in front of her.
She explained she didn't want to see him with other girls and tensions heightened between her and Courtney. Danni didn't like the way Courtney had made a few comments about Lockie - including she could have him if she wanted - and a rumour had spread claiming Courtney and Lockie had slept together. Both denied this, however.
Viewers had previously seen Danni and Courtney clear the air. She told Courtney she thought she had been "disrespectful" with the way she had gone about things.
In last night's episode, Danni confessed that she is now doubting her decision to split with Lockie. She confronted her ex to come clean about her feelings, but was left disappointed when Lockie suggested he is now moving on.
TOWIE continues Sunday 20 March at 10pm on ITVBe.
