It's been a while since we last saw James 'Lockie' Lock and Danielle Armstrong on our screens together but they're due to reunite very soon.

The pair, who had more ups and downs than a rollercoaster, split in 2016, and Lockie went on to date Yazmin Oukhellou.

Although Danielle quit the show after the breakdown of her relationship, she returned in 2017 and threw a Halloween party.

It was awkward to say the least (remember Lockie stormed off when he discovered his ex was hosting the 'do?) but fast forward to 2019 and Danielle returned AGAIN to chat with Yaz about her split with Locke - and yes, their chat was as bizarre as it sounds.

Well, now the TOWIE 10-year anniversary is fast approaching, it's been confirmed that Danielle is making a comeback again and there's been rumours that she could have a 'explosive' reunion with her ex-boyfriend.

Despite insisting that "everyone is kind of OK with each other" a source teased, "Danielle and James haven't spoken in a while and now she's a mum Dani has other priorities and it's put things into perspective for her.

"Having her back on the show for the anniversary is amazing because they're hoping Dani and James will have a big showdown reunion where she can ask him everything she ever wanted and finally get some closure."

She dated Lewis Bloor when she first joined the show but things took a turn and they had a bitter split. Nicole has since dated Aaron Chalmers (after meeting on Ex on the Beach) and Sam Mucklow. Unfortunately Sam quit the show alongside his now pregnant girlfriend Shelby Tribble (who was Nicole's friend). Anyways, we're excited to see what Nicole gets up to on the next series...

Let's be honest, it wouldn't be right to have a TOWIE reunion with Joey Essex. He's one of the show's most iconic cast members of all time so we're excited AF to see that he's been filming with BFF James 'Diags' Bennewith.

A lot has changed for Danielle since she left TOWIE. She's now engaged to her childhood sweetheart Tommy Edney and recently gave birth to their daughter Orla Mae. She's been spotted filming for the new series with Chloe Sims so we can't wait to see what they get up to.

The insider went on to add to OK! magazine, "If she doesn't get the answers she was hoping for it's gonna be explosive."

We cannot wait to see this air next month...

Lockie and Danielle are in very different places since we last saw them on our TV screens.

Danielle is a now a mum to baby Orla Mae and is engaged to her long-term friend and baby daddy Tom Edney after they started dating last year.

Meanwhile, Lockie appears to be back with Yaz despite her accusing him of cheating on her last year and confessing on TOWIE that she was on "her hands and knees" begging her boyfriend to tell her the truth.

TOWIE is set to return in September and it's been confirmed that some of the former cast members are returning including Amy Childs, Joey Essex and even Ferne McCann has teased she could make a comeback.
