Believe it or not Dan Edgar is one of the TOWIE's longest running characters – sorry, we mean cast members, obvs. He joined the series way back in 2015, while in an on/off/on/off relationship with Kate Wright. Remember that? Us too. Let's all be old together.

Over the last few years we've mainly known Dan as, well, Mr Amber Turner, but this series we're getting to know a very single Dan – who is currently making amends with the likes of Ella Rae Wise and Saffron Lempriere – and for the first time in a while, we have to say, we like what we're seeing.

Did we just say that?

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 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.
