He says he should have known that the one was standing right in front of him, because they share the same surname.

And now Ollie Locke cant wait to become Mr Locke-Locke after accepting the proposal of boyfriend – and long-term friend – Gareth Locke.

The Made In Chelsea star, who confirmed his engagement this weekend, will change his name when the two families together.

We are going to be Locke-Locke, Ollie told Hello magazine on Monday. I like the idea that his family and my family will be joined together.

Ollie and Gareths friendship turned to romance in 2018, not long after his appearance on Celebs Go Dating.

Explaining their connection at a mutual friends house, Ollie said: We were sat in front of a fire for two hours and I realised that things had changed between us.

I thought he was the one very early on; I was pretty sure that this was something that would be for the rest of my life.

Gareth proposed in Kensington Park Gardens on a walk with pet pooch Bear late last month.

The couple announced their engagement in The Times this week, confirming that the Lockes of Southampton and the Lockes of Suffolk would soon be joined in matrimony.

I have known him for 10 years, Ollie wrote on Instagram. And at many of my most important life moments he was in the background.

Earlier this year we realised that what we had both been looking for was standing in front of us all along, the greatest hint was probably that we already have the same surname!

I have never been happier and cant wait to spend the rest of my life with someone who makes me smile like this every day! On Sunday I said yes.

Ollie appeared on dating show Celebs Go Dating in February and left Made In Chelsea to focus on developing a gay dating app Chappy.

During his time on the show, he famously dated heiress Chloe Green, Gabriella Ellis and Ashley James, however came out and declared himself ready for his first gay relationship in December 2016.

Ollie said: I think everyone does think – and always has – that Im fully gay. But its not like that.

Ive never slept with a guy. This is the first time Ive ever said it on television, but its done. Ive never slept with a guy in my life. I think everyone kind of assumes that I have.
