Who is Gareth Locke? Ollie Locke's fiance and clothing company director

MADE In Chelsea star Ollie Locke is loved up with his new husband Gareth Locke.

The pair have taken the next step, and are set to start IVF treatment for a family. 

Who is Gareth Locke?

Gareth Locke is a commercial director at luxury clothing brand Holland Cooper.

The British-made tweed clothing firm was established in 2008, two years before Gareth joined as Office Manager.

He left the company in 2013 before rejoining as Head of E-commerce in 2016, and later rising to become the commercial director in June 2017.

Gareth currently has over 70,000 followers on Instagram, and you can follow him @garethplocke.

When did he start dating Ollie Locke?

Gareth began dating long-term friend Ollie in 2018 after the former MIC star took part in Celebs Go Dating but failed to find the perfect person.

But they first met more than ten years ago when they were both modelling at a fashion show for designer Jade Holland Cooper.

The two revealed their friendship turned to romance after spending a weekend together at a mutual friend's home.

In their engagement announcement, Ollie shared: “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.”

When did they get married?

Ollie married his partner Gareth in a secret London wedding in November 2020.

The last-minute ceremony was brought forward so the couple could marry before new coronavirus restrictions came into place.

Ollie told fans on Instagram ahead of the event: "We have had to postpone the wedding twice…and it has been a nightmare, but we are determined to get married this year in whatever way we can and to end 2020 in the way we want 2021 to begin…exceptionally magical, full of love and with a huge amount of white hydrangeas!"

Ollie's best friend and co-star Binky Felstead served as a bridesmaid at the ceremony.

The couple got in engaged in 2018, after Gareth proposed to Ollie by the Peter Pan statue in Kensington Park Gardens.

The pair decided to change their name to Locke-Locke after they wed.
