She joined the cast of TOWIE in 2021 and since her first episode Dani Imbert has been involved in a lot of drama.

She had a feud with Chloe Meadows and Courtney Green over Gatsby, she had that on/off romance with Roman Hackett and she fell out with Ella Rae Wise.

So we thought we'd have a catch up on Dani, what she's been up to and who she's feuding with...

Who is Dani Imbert?

Dani is a TOWIE cast member. She joined the show back in 2021.

She's closest to Ella, Junaid Ahmed and Roman Hackett. She was also friends with Frankie Sims, Demi Sims and Chloe Brockett before they quit the show.

When did Dani Imbert join TOWIE?

Dani first joined the show in series 28 when her friend Rem Larue set her up on a date with Gatsby.

Opening up about filming for the show, she exclusively told us, "Filming when you're single and filming in a relationship is such a different experience. My first two series when I was in a relationship, I didn't experience how TOWIE really is filmed and what it's like to be on the show.

"This series has been the most fun to me. I've been able to just do what I want, say what I want, I have my own little group of friends on the show. This time around, being single, I've had the most amount of fun on the show than I've ever had before. It's been amazing."

What has Dani said about TOWIE?

Dani has opened up about her TOWIE experience and admitted that although she stars on the show, she doesn't even watch it.

During an Instagram Q&A one of her followers asked her, "How do you feel about last night's episode?"

Dani then admitted, "I don't actually watch any of the episodes back. I just live in the moment & when the episode airs I just hear what other people think of it ❤️".

She recently admitted that she doesn't see herself committing to TOWIE long-term. During an Instagram Q&A, she admitted, "I do love my job, but it's not a forever thing for me, I want more ❤️."

How old is Dani Imbert?

Dani is one of the younger cast members at 25 years old. Her birthday is 3 April and she was born in 1998.

What is Dani Imbert's job?

So it turns out Dani models for clothing brand Jessica Stone Ltd, that features on ASOS. She also used to work in finance in between filming for TOWIE but has since left that job to focus on TV and social media work.

Where is Dani Imbert from?

She's from Essex, of course. However on her Instagram Story she's told followers that she's St Lucian.

How tall is Dani Imbert?

During an Instagram Q&A, one of her followers asked about her height and she said, "I'm 5'6.

"I don't think that's tall but when all your friends are 5' you may as well be a giant🙃😂".

When did Dani Imbert and Gatsby first meet?

During the second episode of TOWIE series 28, Gatsby revealed that they chatted online after he liked all of her Instagram photos before sliding into her DMs.

Dani has since said that they actually meet at a bar, "He came over to me and asked me to do a shot with him".

The duo were planning to meet up in person but were forced into lockdown. But after the second lockdown ended, it came to light that Gatsby had a girlfriend.

Is Dani Imbert dating Gatsby?

Gatsby wined and dined Dani (in a chicken shop, no less) when she first joined the show and the pair went from strength to strength. They continued to pursue their romance over the summer and made things Insta-official, so viewers genuinely thought they were boyfriend and girlfriend.

However in September 2021, things weren't so clear after she revealed "we're not even official yet".

Fast forward a bit and the couple became official after Gatsby whisked her off her feet (literally) on a romantic plane ride and asked her to be his girlfriend.

When did Dani Imbert and Gatsby split?

In autumn 2021 the couple were forced to deny that they had split following reports that they were 'no longer speaking' after a 'blazing row'.

A show insider told Closer, "They have not and never did break up."

Neither Gatsby or Dani commented on the break up rumours, but Dani did share a cryptic post about only have "one life".

The Instagram post read, "Been thinking a lot about life lately and it's only sunk in that you only get one life, you don't get another go at it.

"Never give a f--k about what anyone thinks about you, life's too short to be anything but happy."

Fast forward to 2023 and the pair officially split.

What has Dani Imbert said about Gatsby?

After their split and Gatsby's announcement that he was leaving TOWIE for a new life in LA, Dani opened up and exclusively told us, "On our last day of filming, we didn't film together. We didn't get the chance to really say our goodbyes, but he did come over off camera.

"We did clear the air and have a chat and just agree that there's no hard feelings. We're not friends but we have got no hard feelings at all. He wished me the best, I wished him the best and we just left it on a reality positive note."

She continued, "You don't get to see that on TOWIE. We don't really speak but off camera, behind the scenes, we did have a conversation and we are on good terms, which is nice."

What happened between Dani Imbert and Roman Hackett?

They were BFFs but cracks began to show in Dani and Roman's friendship during series 29 as they rowed over her relationship with Gatsby.

During an episode Roman asked Dani, "Are you two perfect now then, yeah?"

She then replied and said, "Not perfect, no one's perfect."

However later on he asked his BFF, "Have you said to me before you're not happy with Gatsby."

And after she responded, "Maybe I've confided in you a bit too much. Maybe it's insecurity, whatever", Roman then said, "Crack on with your fake relationship, yeah. You're a f---ing joke."


Good news though, they're pals again and have even shared a kiss or two.

Who is Dani Imbert dating?

In May 2023, Dani announced that she was dating Essex man Reiss Boyce. While he didn't join TOWIE, Dani did post photos of them together on Instagram.

Fast forward to December and it was reported that they'd split but a month later they were spotted out and about together, so who knows at this point.

Has Dani Imbert had a BBL?

WARNING: graphic photos ahead

In November 2022, Dani went under the knife for liposuction and a BBL. Sharing a message for the haters on her story, Dani wrote, "The irony of girls who have had cosmetic surgery themselves commenting on me and what I get done to my body is bizarre.

"Please do not preach about 'pressure on young girls' if you yourself have had surgery. Make it make sense, weirdos."

Dani kept her followers in the loop via her Instagram Story and revealed she had been "living in @junaidahmedx size 11 sliders", because her feet were too swollen to fit in any of her shoes.

She explained, "So I'm 10 days post op and only today am I feeling back to myself and normal. Past three days I've experienced SEVERE swelling and water retention which I never knew could be that bad so initially made me panic but have been told by professionals is completely normal and okay.

"Dani continued, ""My back and stomach blew up which I expected but my feet and legs I was completely shocked about but have since gone down a lot. Feeling a lot better today x."

In a separate Instagram Story she revealed a picture of a swollen (and visibly bruised) lump on her lower back explaining, "On my lower back I have a huge lump partly swollen but mainly filled with fluid. I wouldn't say it's painful just extremely uncomfortable but will ease as the days go on and the more massages I get will make it a lot better.

"Once the fluid is drained I'll be left with such an unreal arch I can't wait."

She wrote, "I have a lot of people on here asking questions every day so I think it's important to show girls that are thinking about getting it down themselves all sides of this surgery and not just the end result when it looks all perfect because it does take time x."

Prior to this update, Dani took part in a social media Q&A with her followers where she fielded questions about the procedures and shared graphic pictures of the results.

When asked what surgery she'd had done, Dani replied, "I had 360 lipo and a BBL ❤️ this has been my first ever surgery but it's something I have thought about for so many years and after a lot of thought I finally went through with it!"

Dani showed off pictures off her new bum as she revealed to her followers that she done "loads of research" before opting to have the surgery in Turkey and chose the clinic as "all [her] friends" had been to the same place.

As for why she decided to have the procedures done, Dani explained, "I just wanted more volume in my hips and bum. I've tried the whole gym scene and wish it worked for me but I just wasn't gaining in the areas that I wanted! But now I've got the shape I wanted I'm happy to maintain it in the gym too x."

Has Dani Imbert had any more surgery?

As well as liposuction and a Brazilian Butt Lift, Dani has also had a boob job and cheek filler.

"I got a ml in each cheek. So happy with the results, they kept it natural looking like I asked.

"Can't wait to go back," she added.

Are Dani Imbert and Ella Rae Wise friends?

Dani and Ella became firm friends (alongside Roman) on TOWIE but things took a turn in 2023 when they fell out and Dani became best pals with Ella's nemesis Chloe B.

But in classic TOWIE style (where kissing and making up is the standard), they're pals again.
