New pictures from the Essex set show Kate meeting up with Dan's mum Wendy for the first time since Kate and Dan's relationship ended after four years.
It looks like a happy reunion as the women hugged while Dan watched: introducing your other half / ex-girlfriend to your mum (again) is surely a good sign for these two?
Kate and Wendy later hung out at Pete Wicks' Bonfire Night birthday party.
Kate and Dan dated for four years before Kate accused Dan of dumping her out of the blue just before he made his debut on TOWIE. When she joined the show this series, she told him he'd broken her heart and humiliated her by then flirting with Jess Wright.
But Dan has been trying to woo Kate back in recent weeks, including by setting up a date at a zoo where they fed lions, not to mention his 'You've Lost That Loving Feeling' serenade in front of the cast!
He then told her: "I know you feel like I've embarrassed you and humiliated you so I wanted to do something that showed I was willing to embarrass myself. I know that's not going to make everything better, but hopefully that just shows you that I'm serious and I'm in this for you."
TOWIE airs Wednesdays and Sundays at 10pm on ITVBe.
