Dan's first ever long term relationship was with Kate Wright - who is now Kate Ferdinand after marrying Rio Ferdinand - and they dated on and off for six years.

He's previously admitted that he will always be fond of his former flame, telling BANG Showbiz, "It didn't work out. We're good friends. I haven't spoken to her for a few weeks.

"I was with Kate for a long time so I think there will always be feelings there. She has an amazing body."

What happened with Dan Edgar and Chloe Sims?

Following a brief split from Amber Turner in 2019, Dan enjoyed a ‘fling’ with co-star Chloe Sims whilst enjoying filming in Thailand.

Chloe told The Sun at the time, "Me and Dan are making a go of it.

"We have grown close over four years of friendship. We're just spending time together."

Their relationship caused carnage on the show as Chloe, whose cousin Joey Essex wasn’t keen on her romance with his best mate, was later left feeling pretty mugged off as it was revealed that he was still seeing Amber in secret.

Amber and Dan then rekindled their romance and Chloe admitted that she "never wanted to speak to him ever again".

Fast forward two years and Chloe, Amber and Dan's feud has been the subject of MANY TOWIE storylines and they still haven't made up.

Does Dan Edgar currently have a girlfriend?

Dan is currently dating Amber Turner, who he first met on the show in 2017 and they sure do have a lot of history.

When Amber and Dan first met she was in a relationship with Jamie Reed. On their return from filming in Tenerife, Jamie accused Amber of cheating on him with Dan.

She later admitted that the pair did share a kiss in Dan's room at an after party.

Dan and Amber, who were both fresh out of long-term relationships, then had an on/off relationship for a couple of years with neither of them willing to fully commit.

However, in March 2019, it was revealed Dan had dumped Amber Turner for good after a Valentine’s date. At the time, he said "it’s a relief" to be single again. That's when he started dating Chloe Sims.

But it seemed the pair couldn't stay away from each other and rekindled their relationship after Dan's romance with Chloe and have been together ever since. They even moved in together in 2020 just before the coronavirus lockdown.
