Nicknamed “Lockie”, he’s straight talking, good humoured and loves to wind up his mates. He is good friends with Pete Wicks and former Towie hunk, Dan Osborne.
Lockie joined Towie with bestie Dan Osborne back in 2013.
At the time the muscleman was single and working as an electrical company supervisor.
The duo caught the eye of a number of the female cast mates when they first came on the scene, but James was quickly off the market as he met long term girlfriend Danielle Armstrong.
During his first few series, his storylines on the show revolved around his on-off relationship with the platinum blonde stunner before they finally called time on the relationship.
