Joey and Dan as BFF’s

Joey and Dan’s friendship has been pretty constant over the past few years and dates back to a boys trip to Ibiza back in 2015.

In numerous birthday posts, Dan has referred to Joey as his ‘good pal’ but given the number of holidays they have been on together, you can definitely call the pair BFF’s.

Check out some highlights from their friendship below…

What happened between Joey and Dan?

When Dan decided to move on from his ex Amber with Joey’s cousin Chloe Sims, Joey cut ties with Dan.


Chloe and Dan developed serious feelings for each other while filming TOWIE season 24 in Thailand. In episode 3 of the new series (Sunday, March 31st) the two decided to take their relationship to the next stage, despite Joey’s feelings.

According to The Sun, Joey feels majorly betrayed by his best pal.

A source told The Sun:

He isn’t at all happy that Dan and Chloe are seeing each other. He knows what Dan is like and has seen how he behaves with women on holiday in Ibiza. He sees Dan as a dirty dog and feels massively betrayed by him going there with her.

Have Joey and Dan made up now?

From the looks of their social media, Joey and Dan haven’t seen each other in some time.

Dan last posted a photo with Joey in summer 2018 and Joey hasn’t made an appearance on Chloe’s Insta for a fair while either.

As cousins, we can be sure that Joey and Chloe will make amends but it seems like Dan is in his bad books.

But with Chloe and Dan taking their relationship to the next stage in Sunday’s episode, it feels like these two will inevitably have to rekindle their friendship.
