Fans know Chris and Amber's six-month relationship has been on the rocks in recent weeks but as far as Lockie is concerned, it's no loss to Chris…
On Sunday night's Halloween special, he told Chris: "Mate, I'm not being funny, six months ain't a long time. If I'm being honest, I think you swerved a bullet. You're a good-looking boy. What you worried about?
"It's her loss, not yours. She has a few people in her ear holes blowing smoke up her ass. Think she's better than you. She ain't better than you."
Chris replied that he wanted to meet with Amber to get some closure, have his say, allow Amber to have her say, and then maybe they could both move on.
But when Chris met with Amber later on, he admitted he'd been talking "bollocks" to the guys and he really wanted her back.
"I said to the boys earlier, 'you need your space and I need space.' That's bollocks, I don't need space at all, I know you do, but the way I feel, if I don't do this now, I'll always think why didn't I do it? I love you, I want to be with you, I care for you. I did some sh***y things, I know I did. This is the last chance to show you I'm strong enough to handle you and your situation. I feel I've lost my best friend and my girlfriend.
"I've taken everything for granted, look how beautiful you are. Everything about you, you are the best thing that has happened to me ever. I can't let you walk out of my life like that, I can't do it."
Amber, however, said it was a confusing situation for her, as although she still cared for him, she had been hurt by his behaviour in recent weeks, especially when she'd needed him more than ever.
"It's so hard, Chris," she said. "When I was going through a really bad time I needed you and you wasn't there and the way you treated me through that time, I cried my eyes out for three weeks. I've been pushed to a point where I want to be on my own, I can't help how I feel, it doesn't mean I don't care for you, I just need time on my own to deal with things, that's it.
"When I wanted you there, when I tried to let you be there, you wasn't, so that's why I feel the way I do. You have to understand that."
