I’m good company and will have a laugh with anyone, says single James Lock ahead of Valentine's Day blind date

JAMES Lock is set to go on a blind date on Valentine's Day after confronting ex Megan Barton Hanson on the forthcoming Ex On The Beach series.

The Sun can reveal the Towie star has signed up to date a string of lucky singletons in Frankie & Benny’s restaurant in Birmingham next week.

He's supporting the campaign to encourage lonely singletons to get out on Valentine's Day.

James, 35, said: “I reckon there’s a lot of people wanting to go out on Valentine’s Day but not bothering because they’re on their own.

"Hopefully now they might do. I’m good company, easy to talk to and will have a chat with anyone, so hopefully I’ll be able to have a bit of a laugh with a few people in Birmingham.

"One of my first dates was actually at Frankie & Benny’s in Essex, so this will bring back some fun memories.”

Love Islander Dale Mehmet is also confirmed to take part in the Glasgow chain and Chloe Veitch, of Netflix’s hit Too Hot To Handle in London's Frankie & Benny’s.

On taking part in the “Take A-Bae” service, TV beauty Chloe said: “Why should it just be couples that get to enjoy Valentine’s Day?

"What about all of us singles? There’s a lot of us out there, I should know!

"I’m really looking forward to meeting some new people at Frankie & Benny’s on Valentine’s Day and who knows – maybe someone will sweep me off my feet?”

In September, The Sun revealed that Towie's Yazmin Oukhellou pulled out of Ex On The Beach just hours before she was due to confront ex James.

However, James came face to face with recent ex Megan, who enjoyed a whirlwind romance and even went to New York together.

Megan, 27, and James, 35, called time on their relationship in December.

At the time a friend said: “Megan’s relationship with James hasn’t worked despite her being hopeful after he surprised during the early days of them dating.”

Following their break up, Megan said she was focussing on her new podcast – You Come First With Megan Barton Hanson.
