Fashion designer Lauren agreed to go out with Dan on Sunday night's episode of the ITVBe show, after enjoying a group trampolining session with him and some of the Essex gang.
Speaking to the official TOWIE website afterwards, Lauren said: "I think it's easy to hang out with each other. He's really good friends with Diags and I'm really good friends with Diags.
"I think Diags' personality is probably my favourite out of everyone around here. The fact they get on really well just makes me think he's a cool guy as well. It's like the Diags seal of approval! If he likes someone, I know I will like them too!
"Dan is very chilled. He is not brash or loud. And you can't deny he is very handsome! My type is non cringey and funny. And he is funny and non cringey so at the moment he's winning!"
Lauren previously dated co-star Lewis Bloor, while Dan enjoyed a few non-date dates with Jessica Wright last series. On yesterday's show, Jessica made it clear to Lauren that she had no problem if Lauren went on a date with Dan, actually encouraging her to go for it.
TOWIE airs Wednesdays and Sundays at 10pm on ITVBe.
