TOWIE star Bobby Norris has revealed he and Mr MMA are no longer a thing. Sob.

Last series, Bobs had been hoping to find love and we all got excited when he met Chris while attending an MMA class. Not only did Bobby then introduce Chris to his TOWIE pals, but after revealing the pair had enjoyed a string of dates, he gave his new flame a big "thumbs up."

However, Bobby did admit that "distance was becoming a bit of a problem" for the pair, as they are located two hours away from each other. We caught up with him recently ahead of TOWIE's new series returning, and he told us that he and Mr MMA are no longer...

TOWIE: Bobby and Chris get a psychic reading from Gemma.
13 April 2016.


Bobby exclusively told us: "I literally haven't got a bad way to say about Chris, he's such a lovely man, but unfortunately our diaries haven't been able to sync. It's just been hard to try and catch up and spend any time together."

The reality star added: "When you want a relationship with someone, that's a big part and you want to be able to see them."

Bobs then gave himself a bit of advice when it comes to him finding future boyfriends and said: "Note to self, when I start dating again they definitely need to be within the M25 circle.

"Two hours is a bit of a mission, really. It's too hard to make it work. We struggled with that. He's a nice man, there was no fallout, and we never really put a label on it… it just fizzled out."

Luckily, though, Bobby had a trip away to Palma with his co-stars to help him take his mind off his relationship woes, and got to indulge in plenty of sunshine and cocktails instead.

Telling us all about how he found filming overseas, Bobby said: "It was lovely to go somewhere different, I've never been there, and we've never filmed there. It was nice to go to a new location and Palma was quite beautiful, it was stunning."

Although he did dub the trip: "Palma drama." So you can only expect what this series has got in store...

We. Cannot. Wait.

TOWIE returns Sunday 17 July at 10pm on ITVBe.
