The Only Way Is Essex star James Lock has proven to be the change he wants to see by giving away a huge amount of cash.

James, 34, gave £30,000 to one man who had entered a competition to win his expensive sports car.

Earlier this year the reality TV star had teamed up with Rafflemycar.com to give fans a chance of winning James' Bentley, worth £100,000.

However, when the raffle failed to sell enough tickets, James decided to pick a winner at random and gave them an early Christmas present of £30,000.

James exclusively told OK! online: "You know what, people are going through such a rubbish time at the moment, I just wanted to help out.

"I gave away a lot of money but I wanna help people through this tough time.

"We tried to raffle off my motor but they had to sell a certain number of raffle tickets, and so when the competition closed and I realised they hadn't sold enough tickets I paid out £30,000 to one of the people who had entered the competition.

"Rafflemycar.com are always doing competitions to win motors or sometimes cash. And they gave a donation to one of the people who entered the raffle too because this one guy was trying to raise money for charity."

Tom Frost, who James gave the £30,000 to, said: "I'm absolutely over the moon. Absolutely amazing."

A spokesman from Rafflemycar.com said: "It was a pleasure to team up with James Lock and gift someone £30k.
