TOWIE’s Danielle “proud” of Lockie for going to counselling

TOWIE‘s Danielle Armstrong has said she’s proud of ex-boyfriend James ‘Lockie’ Lock for seeking help through counselling, as reported by

In the ITV show earlier this summer, Lockie was shown speaking with his therapist about feeling angry and frustrated following his split from Danni.

Danni tweeted afterwards: “Regardless of the problems me and James had in our relationship I’m very proud he’s taking it seriously and going to counselling.”

Other stars who sent love and well wishes to Lockie included Lewis Bloor and James ‘Arg’ Argent as well as Frank Major.

Frank tweeted: “Addressing your demons in public isn’t easy. You’re doing yourself proud mate.”


Lockie was featured saying to his counsellor: “We’re not in a good place at the minute. We are barely talking. Sometimes the frustration leads to anger.”

His counsellor replied: “It’s okay to feel angry. Anger is a valid emotion like any other emotion. It sounds like you’re replacing feeling hurt with anger, almost then as the defence.”

Lockie replied: “I know it sounds very chauvinist but I think hurt is quite weak, if you like. I feel a bit hard done by that if someone has caused my grief and hurt, why am I feeling hurt? It should be them feeling hurt, not me.”
