The 'Only Way is Essex' star split from her on/off boyfriend James Lock last month following three years of dating and she's now decided that she's going to ban herself from striking up a romance with any other males from her hometown for now.

Speaking on 'Lorraine' on Wednesday (12.10.16), the blonde beauty said: "I'm now looking at branching outside Essex, anyone outside the Essex area give me a call!"

But, although her explosive relationship with James has put her off future love, the 28-year-old babe is adamant she and her ex-boyfriend are still friends and are on really "good terms".

She explained: "I'm really good. Me and James have had an on/off relationship for the last three years and I think we've probably bored the nation with us getting back together. 'Are they on or off?' But we are good. We're in a good place. I think sometimes it's best to just let go. We did try; we tried our best."

Her opinion of men from Essex changed even more when she found out Pete Wicks - a close pal of James - had been cheating on her friend Megan McKenna.

And Danielle has admitted she was the person responsible for telling her co-star that the inked hunk had been sending saucy messages to string of other girls behind her back after a screenshot of texts appeared online last week.

She revealed: "I kind of have to drop the bombshell to Megan about that this girl that had come out. Sometimes you don't want everyone knowing about it and I respect her for that."
