TOWIE star James Lock has taken to social media to boast about his successful day at Cheltenham after winning £36,000 in bets.

The 33-year-old TV personality, who is currently looking for love on E4 dating show Celebs Go Dating, shared his exciting news with his 860,000 followers.

Lockie shared a screenshot of his Paddy Power account on his Instagram stories and revealed he had won a treble.

The Essex lad placed bets on the horses Champ, Envoi Allen and Altior to the sum of £4,000, earning returns of nine times the amount he put down.

Unsurprisingly, James was delighted with the result and penned: "Bosshhh! Come on @paddypoweroffical."

Both of James' ex's came face-to-face during the last series of TOWIE for an emotional chat.
