CELEBS Go Dating star Amy Childs has revealed she had a vicious row with co-star James Lock after he called her “desperate”.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, Amy, 29, explained: “One of my biggest concerns about joining the agency was filming with Lockie.
“We fell out about three years ago. We had an argument and I went around telling everyone he was a really horrible person, so I was a little bit worried about us both being on Celebs Go Dating.”
Going into more detail about their feud, she went on: “He was just saying how I was desperate to get back on Towie, and I took it too seriously.
“We ended up falling out, and I told everyone he wasn’t nice person.”

However, they cleared the air after talking through behind the scenes of Celebs Go Dating, and Amy admits she misjudged him.
She said: “But you know what he is a lovely guy. I have now seen the real Lockie, and he’s lovely. I know he was just winding me up and messing about.
“I told him when we started filming how I didn’t like him, and I explained to him why, and he totally got it.
“He has great banter but some times he takes it too far. He pissed me off and I took things too seriously. We are good mates now though.”

And Lockie feels the same way, telling us he has nothing but respect for Amy.
He said: “She is very sexy and attractive. She has also grown up massively and come a long way.
“She is bringing up two kids on her own and I admire her for that. My mum brought up two kids on her own and anyone that does that I have a lot of admiration for.
“It doesn’t matter how much money you have it is still hard.”
