And now, the TOWIE stars pal James Lock has had his say on the rumoured relationship between the blonde beauty and the former footballer. 

Danielle Armstrong’s ex boyfriend had a lot to say about the rumoured relationship, and slammed his co-star for leaving his friend “in the lurch”.

“It came out of nowhere. My loyalties are with Dan; I’m on side with him.”

James continued to The Sun: “He [Dan] has a lot of love for Kate and would have liked the idea of getting her back but then Kate met Rio in Dubai so he’s been left in the lurch. 

“I don’t know Rio; he’s obviously a family man – good luck to them.”

Dan recently admitted he’s always have feelings for his ex girlfriend, as he discussed the rumours surrounding her love life. 

Speaking about the footballer, he said: “I didn’t think he would be her type at all. I know I’ve made mistakes in the past but I feel disappointed.”

The reality star continued to the Daily Star: “I want her to be happy but this just seems a bit weird. 

“I can’t see us getting back together after this.”

And while Kate appears to have moved on with the football legend, Dan has insisted he’s remained single. 

Opening up about his split from Kate, the 26 year old said: “It didn’t work out. We’re good friends. I haven’t spoken to her for a few weeks. 


“I was with Kate for a long time so I think there will always be feelings there. She has an amazing body. 

“I’m not dating at the moment. It’s not easy to have a relationship on TV, I know that now, but I guess it depends on the circumstances.”

Despite being hounded by romance rumours, Kate and Rio have neither confirmed nor denied that they are in a relationship. 

And a source recently revealed that the dad of three – who tragically lost his wife in 2015 – is in no rush to get into a serious relationship. 

The insider said: “Rio and Kate have enjoyed spending time with each other with other friends. 

“There’s a real connection there but Rio is in no rush to turn this into a serious relationship.”

“But Kate is very smitten with him and therefore happy to wait and see what happens.”
