He's had his fair share of love life dramas captured on Made In Chelsea and Celebrity Big Brother and now Ollie Locke has revealed he wants to become a male Carrie Bradshaw handing out relationship advice.

We caught up with the impeccably dressed reality star over the weekend at Chestertons Polo in the Park at The Hurlingham Club and he told us about his plans to become a dating guru.

He said: "I want to give relationship advice to girls, because all my female friends are always asking me for advice and I see it from a boy's perspective. I'm a good listener and I've experienced a lot, even though I'm only in my 20s, I know a lot about romance. I'm working on a new book at the moment, it's a novel a bit like Sex And The City, I'm like a male Carrie Bradshaw."

"When I joined Made In Chelsea I was going to be depicted as a writer, it's something I've always enjoyed and I've been told I'm good at it. But then the storyline with Gabriella took over and the producers kind of forgot about the writing thing."

Ollie, who is currently single, told us he was hoping to pick up a date at the annual polo event - having found romance at the event in previous years.

The Laid In Chelsea author explained: "I always seen to find someone here, I'm on the lookout for a date. I met my ex Chloe Green at the polo one year - there's always lots of beautiful people here."

While Ollie might be focusing on his literary career, as well exploring TV options, he told us he doesn't watch his old pals on Made in Chelsea.

He laughed: "No I don't want the show, I just can't, that's behind me now and I'm working on my own projects. I won't be watching the New York episodes either - mainly because I'd love to go out there and work for two months so I don't want to see the cast doing that, I'm jealous."

While Ollie might not be hanging out with his old MIC pals he gushed about his CBB housemate Casey Batchelor, who attended the bash on Friday.

He said: "Oh I absolutely love Casey, she's just the nicest sweetest girl, we are so close now. I love her."

Another former CBB housemate, Sam Faiers, who Ollie confessed to liking on the show, also attended the event, but the pair avoided an awkward meeting as Sam attended the on Saturday, the day before Ollie. The reality star was spied in the Mahiki VIP area drinking champagne with a group of girlfriends.
