Ollie Locke has posted the sweetest message about his best friend Binky Felstead, saying he "couldn't be happier" for the new mum. Binky and her boyfriend Josh 'JP' Patterson welcomed their baby girl on Monday, and Ollie praised the way the Made in Chelsea stars did it so "quietly in the most private way".
Taking to Instagram to share a photo of the new parents kissing, Ollie wrote: "I'm thousands of miles away working very late in Los Angeles, coincidently where nearly 2 years ago to the day on the same street I watched JP and Bink's adventure begin! Two days ago they had a beautiful baby girl and I couldn't be happier for them, doing it quietly in the most private way."

The birth was announced on Monday evening, when a representative exclusively told HELLO! Online: "Baby was born earlier today. Mother and baby doing well."
