Here’s what we know about Celebs Go Dating star Ollie Locke

As one of the original cast members of Made in Chelsea, Ollie Locke is no stranger to the world of dating and love.

But as he begins his journey on series 4 of Celebs Go Dating, audiences are certain to see a new side to him as he tries to find love among his fellow celebrity castmates.

Here is what we know about the posh club promoter.

How did he become famous?

Despite growing up in Southampton, Ollie joined the original cast of Made in Chelsea before its first airing in 2011.

He did have a claim to fame from his school years – it has been reported he shared a dormitory with Game of Thrones star and brother of Lily, Alfie Allen.

But the reality star had his eyes fixed on fame and studied performing arts and drama before his move to the Big Smoke.

In the years running up to his TV career, he worked at various nightclubs in Mayfair and on the Kings Road as a doorman, including Chelsea favourites Raffles and Mahiki.

Since then, Ollie has become a fixture of the reality TV world, featuring on shows such as Celebrity Big Brother and The Island with Bear Grylls, where he famously stabbed a crocodile while desperately hungry.

He’s also guest spotted on a few panel favourites, including 8 Out of 10 Cats and Celebrity Juice, guest presented segments on This Morning, and been interviewed on The Jonathan Ross Show and Alan Carr’s Chatty Man.

What about his love life?

Ollie’s love life has been tumultuous – to put it lightly – and his best known on-screen romance probably comes in the form of Gabriella Ellis and heiress Chloe Green, both of whom eventually left the show.

As the series progressed he came out as bisexual, and later as gay.

Since then, Ollie has kept his relationship status fairly off the radar, only occasionally going on suitably awkward dates at the behest of his BFF Binky Felstead.

A sneak peek from Celebs Go Dating show Ollie meeting the man of his dreams – only to find out he’s straight – so let’s hope his luck turns around as the show progresses.

*Celebs Go Dating continues tonight at 9pm on E4.
