HE’S known for his floppy hair and mega-watt smile – as well as for his on and off relationship with Katie Wright, his split from new girl Amber Turner and his recent fling with Frankie Gaff.

Dan’s involvement in a secret investment business which scammed customers out of over £450,000 by selling them dodgy coloured diamonds that sometimes didn’t even exist has recently been made public.

Who is Dan Edgar and when did he join Towie?

Dan Edgar, 26, is a reality star from Essex and currently features on ITVbe’s The Only Way Is Essex.

Before joining the cast of Towie in 2015, Dan worked as an electrician and was in a relationship with Kate Wright for four years.

When he first joined the show, he became romantically linked with Towie castmates Jessica Wright and Lauren Pope – and was even a cause of a row between the two pals.

Dan’s ex Kate then joined the cast of Towie and the pair have been on and off ever since – with a few fiery arguments in between.

What happened with Frankie Gaff?

Made In Chelsea’s Frankie Gaff had a steamy affair with Dan Edgar behind the back of her boyfriend, Jamie Lang.

They got together while on holiday in Ibiza while Jamie was back filming in England.

They were seen flirting on the Spanish party island, and they ended up at the same house party, where they shared a steamy smooch.

An onlooker told The Sun Online: “There’s a lot of chemistry there and they certainly looked like they were enjoying themselves.”

Representatives for Frankie and Dan both declined to comment.

Is Dan dating Amber Turner?

The former electrician was dating co-star Amber Turner, with Amber revealing she was dating Dan but they were “taking things slowly”.

After the couple called it quits in April, a source said: “Amber and Dan have decided to go their separate ways after dating for the last month.

“Dan has been less than impressed by the way Amber has handled herself since going on the show.”

When Amber and Dan first met she was in a relationship with Jamie Reed. Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, she said: “Dan did turn my head and when I was with Jamie and that left me confused, but I absolutely never cheated on him in Tenerife. I would never do that, I’m a loyal person, and Dan had nothing to do with our break up.”

She added: “Me and Dan aren’t anything serious, we’re just getting to know each other, we had a discussion and decided we are now seeing each other. We’ve both come out of long relationships so we don’t want to rush anything.”

However, she insists Dan wasn’t the reason for her split from Jamie as she revealed they had a “sexless” relationship and the “spark had gone”.

What happened to Dan Edgar and ex Kate?

Despite a turbulent 2016, things seemed on the up for the couple – after Dan pulled a romantic stunt during the Only Way Is Essexmas Christmas special.

Dan seemed to realise the error of his ways, and decided to do what he could to win back the beauty.

With the help of his friend Diags, who dressed as a Christmas turkey, Dan stood in front of the Danielle Armstrong’s shop window as Kate chatted with her friends inside, holding a series of Brussel Sprout-shaped cards.

As the girls watched on, Dan’s first card read: “I know you’re not talking to me, but please don’t tell me to get stuffed.”

He continued with his cards: “My mum told me I should always tell the truth at Christmas. So I just wanted to say…”

But ever the joker, Dan took a ‘hair break’, adjusting his luscious locks to make the girls giggle.

He then showed a card which read: “Even though you are slightly (very) crazy and sometimes look like this…

After showing a picture of Kate pulling a face, he continued: “This is what makes you who you are.

“And it’s who you are that…I’m in love with, I always have been and I always will be.

“I love you Kate, Merry Christmas”.

The cheeky chappy then finished with a wink before walking away from the shop with his pal in tow.

However, since then, Kate has been linked with footballer Rio Ferdinand – much to Dan’s shock.
