This could get awks
After splitting with long-term GF, Kate Wright and then enjoying a rather short-lived fling with new girl, Amber Turner (who was living with boyfriend of four years, Jamie Reed at the time)- he’s definitely been making the most of his single status.
But as the dramatic series finale aired on Wednesday evening – ITVBe viewers watched on in shock as Dan’s former fling and Essex veteran, Lauren Pope strutted into the pool party after three long years away from the show.
And it’s fair to say 26-year-old Dan could barely contain his excitement as the pair flirted away, and the Essex lad even asked Lauren for a drink.
Following their reunion (and a VERY couple-y shot on Instagram) now Dan has confessed he’s planning to pursue 34-year-old Lauren and will definitely take her out, as he told The Sun: ‘Lauren is stunning obviously.
‘I’m going to take her for a drink for sure. I have always got on with her. We had a little fling before and ended on good terms – so we will see.’
Oo la la. So have we found the next Essex ‘IT’ couple following the demise of Pete Wicks and Megan McKenna?
Well, Dan certainly isn’t too hung up on former girlfriend Kate leaving the show at the end of the series as he added: ‘I wouldn’t say I’m sad about Kate [Wright] leaving.
‘She came on it not long after me – it makes it less awkward for me not having to film with my ex all the time and it means I’m free to crack on.’
However, there was one lady who probably isn’t too keen on Dan ‘cracking on’ and that’s, Amber T – who ended up leaving the pool party after watching her ex’s flirty antics with Lauren. Eeek!And things don’t seem to be getting any better for Amber, as Dan and Lauren were spotted arriving at the launch of Joey Essex’s clothing brand DAFDEA together on Thursday evening.
We can’t believe we have to wait for the new series to see what happens with this love triangle…
