He joined the ITVBe programme in series 14 last year, while ex-girlfriend Kate arrived later that year in series 16. Viewers watched over the last series as Dan won her back and now the couple are happier than ever.
Speaking ahead of the 17th series premiere this weekend, Dan was asked the "biggest untruth" he'd ever heard about himself.
"People say I have no personality and that I'm boring because I think when I first came onto the show I didn't talk a lot," he said.
"I don't think that's true. I think since Kate has come on, I've been more comfortable and people have seen more of me."
As if to prove this point, he said the TOWIE scene that sparked the biggest reaction on Twitter for him had been when he sang to Kate! "It's got to be the singing, the Top Gun scene. It got a great reaction!"
TOWIE returns to ITVBe for its 17th series on Sunday at 10pm.
