Since it was confirmed that Kate has now joined the show, she and her ex are yet to be pictured together. But, yesterday evening, both Kate and Dan were spotted arriving at Funky Buddha flanked by their pals for filming, meaning it was inevitable they would come face-to-face inside.
Oh, if only we could have been a fly on the wall...
While Dan arrived alongside his best friend James 'Diags ' Bennewith, Kate was joined by another new addition to the TOWIE cast, 20-year-old Michael Hassini.
Self-confessed lothario Michael will also be making his debut in Marbella and he's bound to cause a stir with his co-stars. Not only will he be making his move on the ladies, but he's already made a dig at the rest of the TOWIE boys, declaring he has "more game" than they do.
And the Essex boy certainly made sure he was dressed to impress for his first night out with the group, looking dapper in tailored navy trousers, a pristine white shirt and matching loafers.
Kate, meanwhile, stunned in her Princess Jasmine inspired ensemble. The 24-year-old wore matching gold co-ords, teaming an off the shoulder crop with a pair of hareem trousers and nude sandals.
On the beauty front, she wore her luscious blonde locks in tousled curls, finishing her look with bronzed eyeshadow and plenty of gloss on her lips.
That's definitely one way to catch your ex-beau's attention, right?
Kate and Dan previously dated for four years, before she claims Dan dumped her out of the blue. When Dan first joined The Only Way Is Essex he was still with Kate, but it became clear their relationship was on and off and soon ended.
His former flame has said she was left completely heartbroken from their split, especially as she had to watch Dan strike up a romance with Jess Wright shortly after.
Things between Jess and Dan quickly fizzled out, however, and he soon turned his attentions to Lauren Pope, with the pair sharing a kiss during last series' finale.
Since then, Dan has said he and Lauren have been on a few dates, but he is still single. We wonder what he'll make of Kate coming onto the scene?
TOWIE returns to ITVBe on Sunday 4 October.
