Danni Imbert TOWIE

by Eden-Olivia Lord |

During the last series of TOWIE there were a few new cast members and one of them was Dani Imbert.

Dani first joined the show after her friend Rem Larue set her up on a date with Gatsby (whose real name is Liam Blackwell).

When they came face to face for their blind date, it came to light that they actually spoke to each other last year but lockdown got in the way and Gatsby starting seeing someone else...

But who is Dani? And how does she know Gatsby? We've got all the answers...

Who is Dani Imbert?

Dani is one of the newest TOWIE cast members after she joined the show during series 28.

She's closest to Roman Hackett but viewers have seen her from a friendship with the Sims sisters too.

What's happened between Dani Imbert and Roman Hackett?

They were BFFs but in an upcoming row it looks like the cracks will begin to show in Dani and Roman's friendship.

During a preview for an upcoming episode, Roman asks Dani, ""Are you two perfect now then, yeah?"

She replies and says, "Not perfect, no one's perfect."

However in a later clip he asks, "Have you said to me before you're not happy with Gatsby."

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

Are Dani Imbert and Roman Hackett from TOWIE related?

Definitely not because in a recent episode, Roman admitted that they'd kissed.

However they are close family friends and even when Roman first joined the show, Dani said they're "semi cousins" but he denied it.

Is Dani Imbert dating Gatsby?

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

But back in early September, things weren't so clear.

Last series, Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell wined and dined Dani (in a chicken shop, no less) and the pair went from strength to strength. They continued to pursue their romance over the summer and made things Insta-official, so we genuinely thought they were boyfriend and girlfriend.

In a video she posted last month, the 23 year old answered questions from fans to tease the new series, including one that asked whether her mum is going to be waiting long to buy a hat for her and Gatsby’s wedding.

Dani laughed and replied, "She’s got a very long wait until she buys a hat, we’ve not even official yet so she’s got a little while."

TOWIE fans quickly flocked to the comments to question Dani’s revelation, with one saying, "Why are you not official when you've been together for a while....", and another writing, "Wait how are they in love but not official, I’m confused."

Dani Imbert and Gatsby split

This autumn (September 28th, to be exact) 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."

The couple have been in the middle of TOWIE drama recently after they clashed with Chloe Brockett over her fling with James Lock.

Has Dani Imbert had any surgery?

On her Instagram Story, Dani admitted that she's had a little work done.

"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.

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.

What has Dani said about TOWIE?

Earlier this month, Dani 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 ❤️".

Well, at least she's honest.
