It’s not been a very good week for TOWIE’s James Lock…

TOWIE just got even more dramatic as new reports are claiming that one of the show’s stars, James Lock, could be suspended from the show.

Oh the drama just never ends.

James allegedly used racial words towards two men whilst filming a TOWIE pool party which, according to The Sun, was overheard by a witness who reported the incident to bosses.

A source from Lime Pictures told The Sun last night: ‘Any issues of this nature are obviously taken very seriously and a thorough investigation is already ongoing.’

A TOWIE spokesman added: ‘The cast member concerned denies these allegations.’

James’ agent couldn’t comment further on the reports.

Fans of the show have been expressing their thoughts on the news.

One Twitter user said: ‘Absolutely Disgusting @JamesLock_’ while another commented: ‘he shouldn’t be suspended, he should be sacked.

It’s not been the greatest of weeks for James. Following his recent split from Essex lady Danielle Armstrong, James has been receiving endless comments from fans over his rumoured relationship with new girl Verity. The news of Verity left Danielle in floods of tears during Wednesday night’s episode of the show after Dani confronted James upon hearing the rumour.

One follower wrote: ‘@Daniarmstrong88 doesn’t deserve that. Go out, flirt with other guys and show @JamesLock_   what he’s missing!

Another said: ‘So disrespectful, clearly never loved Danielle…she can do so much better! Enjoy your bits of rough lockie!

Another wrote: ‘@JamesLock_   Danielle is bloody gorgeous..what are you thinking! You two are a gr8 couple..get her back James! X.’

Other fans took James’ side:
One fan wrote: ‘Get a grip  @Daniarmstrong88 you made your bed! Deal with the consequences. @JamesLock_  enjoy life your young, free and single.

Another commented: ‘@JamesLock_   has done nothing wrong! Got to move on! #teamlockie #TOWIE.’

Oh wow- we’re looking forward to the next episode of TOWIE already!
