The exes were together for around six years before splitting in July: since then it hasn't exactly been smooth sailing with Jon Clark's allegations that Kate had been sleeping with one of Dan's friends (which she denied) and Kate accusing Dan's friend Jon of leaving her flirtatious voicemails.
Now, they've got another awkward situation to deal with: the news Dan's slept with someone else in Marbs.
In Wednesday night's episode we'll see Kate and Dan continuing to avoid each other on the holiday as word spreads around the group that Dan has slept with someone else. (Kate already heard last episode he'd slept with a woman in Marbs but this appears to be a new one.) Eventually they do end up bumping into each other and, well, it doesn't go that great...
Adding more drama to the whole situation is Chloe Lewis, who apparently makes some comments about Dan that Kate is NOT happy about.
Kate said this week: "I'm trying to stay away from him," she explained. "He's sleeping with half of Marbs, I'm going to keep it classy. Dan does have a track record of sleeping with basic bitches in Marbs. Must be a thing for him... He can carry on, let him do that, he'll only be crying that he loves me.
"Obviously, I was with him for six years and I still love him, but we're both single and we can do what we want. I've got no right to say anything. The major thing I'm happy about it, is that it's not me that has slept with him. His penis has been in another woman, so I'm not going to be sleeping with him. That's what you've got to think... when I look at him, that's what I'm envisioning. I'm a strong, independent woman."
Dan, meanwhile, told Reveal last week it was difficult being around Kate in Marbella: "When I was at home, I didn't see her for a while and it was out of my mind. Kate turned up [in Marbella]. Obviously, there is still feelings there, we had been together for a long time and I do miss her. It's natural. I just found it hard and my head went. I couldn't be around her."
