He was innocent all along!
No, sorry, this is The Only Way Is Essex, of course he cheated.
With polo-neck firmly on, Lockie told Danielle, "before we were official" he slept with precisely 3 other girls.
He also, admitted that he'd continued to text and tweet other girls even when they were officially a couple too.
Things went from bad to worse when Danielle asked him flat out, "why do you even want to be with me?"
Did he say the wrong thing? No, he said nothing!
So imagine our fear when Danielle took to Twitter to post this:
Well that made me cry again just watching it... If only men's pride didn't get in the way of their real feelings #StillStayingStrong— Danielle Armstrong (@Daniarmstrong88) March 26, 2014
Just as James wrote, "Cheating is inexcusable & destroys a partners confidence, for that I can only apologise & know that I've been a coward!!"
Thankfully, at least for now Danielle has had it with Lockie and his lies, if this tweet is anything to go by:
James has promised to fight for her, and with her use of "for now" we're pretty sure this isn't over for ever.
Meanwhile, Lauren Pope was still giving Chloe Sims the silent treatment for having a secret month long relationship with Mario Falcone.
But it seemed to be over before we had a chance to go from, 'huh, that's super weird' to 'OK I guess I can get on board'.
In a moment of logic and selflessness, Mario told Chloe that they should end it before things turned ugly and he hurt her.
He also mentioned being back in touch with Lucy Mecklenburgh...we're still holding out for her return.
Other highlights of the episode had to be the various hilarious facial expressions of Ferne McCann and the appearance of Mark Wright at the boxing match.
