She had been getting her hair done in her hometown of Essex, before being greeted by a photographer on her way out. However, it wasn't like her usual encounters with the paps and Danni misread the situation, thinking the photographer was actually going to "kidnap" her instead...
What on earth happened?!
Taking to Snapchat to tell the story, Danni told followers: "I've just had a really awkward moment, not saying I'm a big time celeb because I'm really not. Am I a Z-lister? I'd say I'm top of a Z-lister."
She continued: "I've just come out the salon, anyway, some pap just jumps out the back of a grey van and doesn't say anything. He starts taking photos and doesn't say one word. Anyway, because I wasn't really expecting it because most paps at least say, 'Hi Danni' or saying something', he didn't say anything, I screamed thinking he's going to kidnap me and put me in the back of the van."
Realising how silly she had been, Danni then added: "Anyway, I feel like a bit of a div. If you do watch my snapchat weird jumping out of a grey van pap man, I don't really like you. I don't like you at all."
Sounds like one big old misunderstanding, right?
Unluckily for Danni, she didn't have her co-star boyfriend James Lock by her side to reassure her it was simply a pap wanting her picture.
She and James are currently dating again, after rekindling their romance during the TOWIE series finale last month. Since then, they've seemed nothing but smitten and Danielle recently told fans the pair had been "making up for lost time."
