Dan and Kate were together on and off for more than six years before they called it quits for good in 2016.

And after rumours started to circulate that Kate’s relationship has caused problems with Dan his new girlfriend Amber Turner, now the 28-year-old has denied he still has feelings for his ex.

‘It’s nothing to do with that. That happened a long time ago. It was literally a few things with our relationship,’ he told The Sun.

Asked about a comment he made stating he’d ‘always love her’, Dan replied: ‘That comment was from a long time ago. I can’t remember when I said that. I haven’t said it recently. But that’s in the past. I’m with Amber and I’m happy with her.’

Dan then added that he hasn’t been in contact with 26-year-old Kate to congratulate her on the engagement, saying: ‘Nah we don’t speak. As I said a long time ago. I haven’t seen her for a long time.’ That settles that, then!
