TOWIEs James Lock and Pete Wicks spending Christmas Day together in London

James Lock has sweetly revealed that he will be spending Christmas Day with his best friend and TOWIE co-star Pete Wicks.

The reality star, 35, shared that he always spends the festive season with his father, Steve, and BFF Pete, 33.

Speaking exclusively to OK!, James revealed what his Christmas plans are looking like for 2021 and the one thing that he wants from the festive period.

He said: "I always spend Christmas with my dad and Pete. We normally go around my dad's house or we do something together.

"This year, I think it's just going to be me and Pete. We're going to be staying at a hotel in London somewhere and then having a Christmas dinner.

"We're going to be spending the Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day in London!"

James added that all he wants this year is to have a "normal" Christmas after England was put into Tier 4 last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

He said: "I just want to have a normal Christmas with people, friends and family I love. Just an actual normal Christmas. Last year was a write off and this year, everyone is looking forward to a nice Christmas."

Elsewhere during the chat, James encouraged fans to "talk to someone" if they are struggling with their mental health as he opened up about his past bouts of depression and anxiety.

The TOWIE star explained why supporting men's health with Movember is so important to him and a charity that is so "close to his heart".

Speaking exclusively to OK!, James admitted that men tend to be "quite closed books" when it comes to discussing their mental health and that it is important to talk to someone outside your friendship group when struggling.

James said: "I think everyone at some point in their life goes through mental health, I think a lot more people should seek therapy. In this country, it's almost a frowned upon thing but in America, everyone's got a therapist.

"It's good to talk to someone, as well as your friends and family, it's good to talk to someone outside of your friendship zone.

"For me, Movember, especially when I have suffered with bouts of depression or anxiety, it gives you a sense of belonging. You're not on your own and there's more people going through what you're going through.

"It sort of lightens the load and makes you feel like you're not 'abnormal'. Sometimes you feel like you're alienating yourself and you've got a massive problem, but when you realise a lot more people go through the same problems, it makes you feel like you fit in, gives you a sense of belonging."
