TOWIE's Lauren Pope and Dan Edgar looked close this week while filming at a pool party.

Taking advantage of the soaring British temperatures, some of the gang stripped down to their bikini's for some poolside fun, and it was another opportunity for Lauren and Dan to spend some more time together.

In new photos from the party, Lauren can be seen giving Dan a little shoulder massage as he holds a toy water gun in his hands.

In last night's episode of the ITVBe reality show (2 July), Lauren and Dan went on a date to a bowling alley following their successful date the week before at an indoor play centre in Essex.

But earlier, Jessica Wright had confronted Lauren over dating Dan. Jess, who went on a few non-dates with Dan last series, had encouraged Lauren to go on a date, but in a later interview, Jess said she was questioning Lauren's friendship over how the situation had been handled.

Speaking to her in last night's episode, Jess told Lauren: "I feel like at the golf I gave you the opportunity to say to me that you liked him. I know in Marbella there was messages exchanged and you got each other's number and I think there was a little day out planned, I just felt that it was all, not behind my back, it just felt awkward."

Lauren said it was a "massive surprise" to hear that because Jess had encouraged her to go on a date with Dan: "We exchanged numbers as friends, so to me that's not a problem," Lauren said.

When meeting up with Dan for a game of bowling later on, Lauren revealed she almost didn't turn up following her conversation with Jess, but she said she was glad that she came.
