The news comes just a few days after the reality star was reported gushing about Dan, saying this is her ‘first grown up relationship’ following a very bitter break-up with former Essex co-star, James Lock.

‘He is The One’, Danielle recently told Reveal magazine.

‘I’m traditional, so I would want to move in together first and do it right. Move in, get engaged, then comes marriage and kids.

‘We’re still in the honeymoon period and we want to enjoy that.’

While both stars have kept their break up on the down low, blonde beauty Danielle hinted she was facing some struggles on Thursday when she shared a cute selfie with her mum.

Posting the pic on Instagram, Danielle told her 1million followers: ‘It’s days like today I appreciate the special bond I have with my mum.

‘Love you always my best mate my mum’.

Danielle said goodbye to her TOWIE pals at the end of last year, hinting her blossoming romance was one of the reasons behind her decision.

‘I’ve got my shop that’s going from strength to strength and I have met someone new, that I’m excited about, it’s still very early days but I can see it going somewhere too,’ she said.

‘I just think sometimes change is good. I’m excited for this next chapter in my life.’

Sending our love to Danni following the sad news.
