James, who spoke ahead of his wrestling match against Pete Wicks for Jose Cuervo, said: “As you can see on the show we’ve been getting on like a house on fire. We had that year apart I think we needed it. Both realised how much we meant for each other, got back and yeah we’re better than ever to be honest.

“Again, people always are have an opinion and everyone’s entitled to their own opinion but only certainly opinions matter to me and the main opinion is my mine and Yaz’s and we’re really happy.

We don’t wanna rush and put any unnecessary pressures on the relationship but yeah the natural steps would be to move back in with each other, especially with this lockdown on the horizon. I think we’re gonna have to anyway so yeah.”
James and Yaz’s decision to reignite their romance came with mixed views as Lockie’s bestie Pete, 31, previously said he’d give their relationship a 50/50 chance.
And, when asked how Lockie feels about advice form friends, he said: “Pete’s a genuine pal of mine. We socialise outside of the show. His advice is always appreciated and vice versa. We always appreciate each other’s advice. He can always talk to me on a level and whatever he’s said I will take on board I’ll never take anything too harshly.
“I always appreciate his advice and vice versa. We’re always here to help and support each other.”
