Series 16 of the reality show has come to an end and in the finale episode, viewers watched as Dan and Kate renewed our faith in romance and decided to give their relationship another shot. Ah, we love a happy ending!
It wasn't just Dan's sentimental scrapbook of memories that sealed the deal though, it turns out Joey 'call me cupid' Essex gave his longtime pal a few words of encouragement when it came to reuniting with Kate: "I said to him 'you haven't really got a choice, you've got to get back with her' because I know he's always loved her."
And Joey would know, having been by Dan's side since the pair were teenagers. "I met Dan was I was about 17 and he's one of the nicest boys," he continued. "The two of them deserve to be together, Dan loves Kate to pieces."
The former TOWIE star explained the closeness between him and Dan had caused friction with Kate in the past, as the two mates were often on nights out together: "When Dan wasn't on TOWIE he was always out with me, and Kate didn't really like that" explained Joey, "Because if I was single I'd be out in clubs with girls, but Dan was always loyal and never did anything wrong.
"It's worked out brilliantly though, she's on TOWIE and they're got back together. Hopefully they'll stay together and get married. Dan is never going to love anyone as much as he loves Kate, believe me! Never in a million years."
Pretty cute, right?
