The main focus of  The Only Way is Essex season 24 has been the extremely hard to follow on/off relationship between Dan Edgar and Chloe Sims.

Having admitted that they “liked each other” in episode 1, things turned super-sour when Love Island star Olivia Attwood polished off her guest appearance by revealing that Dan had kissed someone else during a night out in Manchester.

Here’s a timeline of Dan and Chloe’s confusing relationship, with a look at where they are right now…

Dan Edgar and Chloe Sims’ romance

Chloe claimed that she and Dan have always had a “flirty relationship” during the first episode of the new series.

She said:

I’ve always really thought he was a beautiful looking guy, then I started to really like his personality. Then I realised that he also thinks that about me as well.

What happened between Dan Edgar and Joey Essex?

When Joey Essex heard news of his best pal making moves on his cousin (Chloe Sims), it’s safe to say he was less than impressed.

Apparently, a source told The Sun: “He (Joey) knows it’s only a matter of time until Dan disrespects her and it all ends in tears. He sees Dan as a dirty dog and feels massively betrayed by him going there with her.”

Since news of the fallout broke, neither Joey or Dan have been seen together, meaning it’s likely that the BFF’s are still not on speaking terms.

Are Chloe and Dan official?

In episode 3 (Sunday, March 31st), the two decided to take their relationship to the next stage, despite what their friends and family thought.

 

However, in episode 5 (Sunday 14th April) it all came crashing down as it was revealed that Dan had bailed on the date, calling it ‘”too much too soon”.

The episode ended with Chloe crying about the situation into the arms of friend Pete Wicks, adding: “Is there something wrong with me? I’m so fed up with his s**t, I’ve been humiliated again.”

Did Dan Edgar cheat on Chloe Sims?

In the show’s Easter special, on Sunday, April 21st, Love Island star Olivia Attwood joined the gang to announce some shocking news.

During the episode, Olivia informed Chloe that there were rumours that Dan had been kissing another girl behind her back while on a trip to Manchester.

Chloe addressed the gossip stating that she had cut ties with Dan and was well aware of the rumours that he had been seeing his ex Amber and kissing girls up north.

Although it is not confirmed whether the cheating rumours are true, things certainly don’t look good for Dan and Chloe.

Chloe and Dan reunite

Despite the Easter ordeal, Dan and Chloe have since been spotted together filming an episode of TOWIE.

Pictured outside of a restaurant together, Dan and Chloe greeted one another with a hug and a kiss on the cheek, leaving fans wondering if the pair are back together.

So, are the pair back on again or is it all for the cameras? Check out the photos on the OK! website here
