Speaking of his transition, he told OK!: “The thing is, reality TV stars – if you want to call us that – are not really respected and I don’t know why. because it takes a lot of work to do what we do, it’s hard, it’s a lot harder than people realize.

“Acting has a lot more credibility, acting is an art. But I prefer acting, because when I was on TOWIE and I played Lockie – myself – people thought they knew me, people look at me and they have opinions about me. , my life, you know?”

He explains that viewers don’t realize how difficult it can be to portray themselves from a certain angle.
