Whilst on Made in Chelsea, Locke became the first person to come out on British television as bisexual. At about the same time, Locke wrote a book called Laid in Chelsea, which spent 8 weeks at number 3 of The Sunday Times Best Seller list. Locke is a seasoned contributor on British television, known for his comedy, charm and honesty. To name a few Locke has been seen on such shows as Celebrity Juice, Alan Carr's Chatty Man, The Jonathan Ross Show, Britains Got More Talent, The Xtra Factor, Do The Dishes, the twelfth series of 8 Out of 10 Cats and the second series of Fake Reaction.

Locke presented a one off Valentine's Day special episode of Love Fix for ITV2 where he interviewed the public about sex, love and romance. Notably, Locke hosted an online show with BBC Radio 1 DJ Gemma Cairney called The Fox Problem where they interviewed the likes of Mel C, Paloma Faith and Richard Branson, bringing in an audience of one million listeners on the first series. He has also presented segments on This Morning and stages at The Clothes Show Live.

Locke left Made in Chelsea for 4 seasons, in 2013 then made his return in 2015 for the end of its LA series, and is now a regular cast member again.

Locke has taken part in Channel 4's Stand Up To Cancer show The Island with Bear Grylls alongside comedian Dom Joly, Scottish rugby player Thom Evans and JLS singer Aston Merrygold.

In 2016 Locke and his co founders Jack Rogers and Maxim Cheremkhin founded the gay dating app Chappy. Having had millions watch Ollie's very public battle with his sexuality he found that the existing dating platforms on the market are not reflective of the modern day wants and needs of the community, so went out to change this.

In March 2017 Chappy launched in New York City, London and Los Angeles and by July 2017 had reached 100 million swipes and over 1 million matches. Ollie often speaks up for LGBT rights and works tirelessly for equal rights.
