We'll meet Kate when the next series of The Only Way Is Essex begins in October but we have heard about her before: when Dan joined the show in February, he said he had an on/off girlfriend. That girl is Kate.
Pictures from the TOWIE set in Marbs this week show the former couple coming face-to-face: we can't wait to find out what they were talking about…
Kate, 24, has claimed Dan abruptly dumped her after he'd joined the TOWIE cast, which left her heartbroken, especially when she saw him flirting with co-star Jess Wright shortly afterwards.
She warned Dan that if he wants her back she'll have to "work incredibly hard" to win her over.
After flirting with Jess on TOWIE, Dan went on to charm Lauren Pope, and they shared a kiss in the series finale. That romance has since fizzled out leaving the path clear for him to reunite with Kate... will that happen? Or will it be fireworks? We can't wait to find out!
TOWIE returns Sunday, 4 October at 10pm on ITVBe.
