TOWIE's James Lock has taken a swipe at his female co-stars while ruling out another romance for himself on the ITVBe reality show...

Lockie had dated Danielle Armstrong on and off for three years, but now they've split, he has insisted he won't be turning his attention to any other of his co-stars.

"None of the single TOWIE girls are my cup of tea, they're too in love with themselves," he told OK!.

Ouch. We wonder how that one will go down!

Lockie has been single since he and Danni broke up back in August, and it sounds like he won't be rushing into another relationship anytime soon. Lockie added: "I'm not looking for love."

He and Danni split offscreen over the summer, but later came face-to-face on camera during TOWIE's Marbella special. Danni had initially avoided the trip overseas, but decided to make a last minute appearance for Megan McKenna's birthday.

It was suggested on the show that the pair had decided to call it quits because Danielle wanted to have children and get married sooner rather than later, while Lockie did want those things but not until further into the future.

However, Danni later told Reveal there was actually more to the split.

"Everyone thought we split because I wanted marriage and kids but it wasn't that, there was other stuff as well, like him being disrespectful or taking things out on me if he was stressed," she explained.

Danni did praise her ex-beau for being very "loyal and protective", but she ruled out a reunion between the pair.

Lockie, meanwhile, exclusively told us that he and Danielle are still friends following their split.

"We're good friends and we can be around each other," he said. "There's no animosity between me and [Danni]. I think this is the cleanest break it can be because we're friends."

Since they went their separate ways, though, fans have been sharing their hopes for Lockie and Danielle to get back together - and while Lockie thinks it's "flattering" that the pair have all that support, he has pointed out that things don't always work out that way.

"Things don't always work out right in life... It's mad the impact that show has. The question everyone always asks is when am I getting back with Danielle! As much as it's flattering and nice, we are real people and this is our real life," he said.

While he may not have any romance drama of his own currently on TOWIE, Lockie has found himself in the middle of Megan McKenna's current break from Pete Wicks.

Pete had been caught texting other girls behind Megan's back, prompting her to take some time out from their relationship, to decide whether she could trust him again. Since then, Pete has vowed to make it work with Megan. He's given her access to his social media accounts on her phone, apologised to her parents for his actions and he's even now had a tattoo of her initial, 'M', inked onto his hand.

But, all of that has left Lockie concerned. He told the boys that Pete was essentially "living in a prison" and claimed that Megan and Pete are constantly arguing when they are together.

Megan denied this and was left upset by Lockie's claims, she has since hit back insisting that her relationship with Pete is "none of his business."

TOWIE continues Wednesday 2 November at 10pm on ITV.
