Episode four of The Only Way is Essex brought a huge reveal, with Jon Clark claiming that Dan Edgar had slept with Amber Turner.

Dan, who recently broke up with Amber, fiercely denied the claims, sparking a huge debate over social media.

Is Dan Edgar telling yet another porky pie?

Or, for the first time in TOWIE history, could he be telling the truth?

Muggy Dean

Episode four opened with series 22 new-boy Dean Ralph charming Amber over some peculiarly fluorescent cocktails.

Following up on their first date at a trampoline park, the date seemed to go well, as Amber admitted that she had completely moved on from ex-boyfriend Dan.

However, fast forward 10 minutes and here is Jon Clark announcing to Dean that Amber had very recently slept with her ex, Dan.

Ah…

Having quoted a “reliable source” – presumably not Wikipedia – Jon convinced his friend that Amber was up to no good, with Dean admitting that he now “looked like an idiot”.

Trick Me Once

Dean decided to approach Dan Edgar for some clarity on the issue, hoping that his Essex pal would admit to sleeping with Amber and they could all move on from the issue.

And where do a group of blokes meet to chat about their feelings?

The gym – obviously.

In classic Dan Edgar fashion, the 27-year-old simply raised his bottom lip, shrugged his shoulders slightly and pleaded ignorant to Dean’s questions.

Not that Twitter was fooled by that grinning smile.

Dean said: “I feel like you had the chance to tell me ‘look I slept with her (Amber) two days ago’, and that way I wouldn’t have took her (Amber) on a date.”

Trick Me Twice

Dan was given one last chance to come clean as he entered a heated argument with Jon, the man who had started episode four’s game of Essex whispers.

Big Jon went straight for the gullet, telling Dan that his time was up and that he needed to admit that he had slept with Amber.

Dan failed to produce a rousing speech to defend himself.

In fact, he pretty much just ignored the question, deciding to launch a random attack at Jon instead, shouting at him to stay “out of his business”.

Well, that escalated quickly …
