Ahead of the new series starting this weekend, the Essex starlet was asked which members of the cast she couldn't live without.
"Chloe, because she calms me down and makes me think before I speak," she said, adding she also misses having Ferne McCann around.
"Purely for her entertainment. We're both very straight and say what we think."
Danielle was also asked which TOWIE scene of hers had received the biggest reaction on Twitter. "When Gemma Collins and I had a fight at the food party," she said.
"A lot of people were pro me but a lot were supporting her - very much a mixture of positive and negative. But it had a big impact. I don't think before I speak, I say exactly how I feel so sometimes I do dread what the reaction is going to be afterwards."
TOWIE returns to ITVBe for its 17th series on Sunday at 10pm.
