The pair reunited after their relationship of ten months ended just before Christmas.

In our exclusive Towie teaser clip Dani, 23, is shown asking 34-year-old Gatsby: “How have you been?”

He didn’t skirt around the truth at the meeting, which took place six months after their break-up.

The reality TV star replied: “Yeah. Obviously at the beginning, the first couple of months, it was hard. I’m not going to lie. I did really miss you.”

At that, Dani began crying, covering her face with both her hands and saying: “I don’t know why I’m getting upset.”

Gatsby replied: “It’s a big thing – the last time I saw you we were boyfriend and girlfriend.”

She told him: “Mm. Yeah. It was ages ago now but it’s still now, I do still find it hard.”

Dani earlier told a fan who asked about how things were between the pair: “We’re not friends no, but there’s no bad blood.”

Liam and Dani’s blossoming romance was at the centre of last series – as her finally asked her to be his girlfriend, but things started to go downhill.

Liam and Dani’s pal Ella Rae Wise exclusively told The Sun that she’s been Dani’s “backbone” since her split.

She said: ” She’s my best friend, I wasn’t expecting it, Dani is the sort of girl that wouldn’t go and air anyone’s business.

“At the end of the day she’s sort of got to think about Liam not just herself.

“So when it all did come out, we were all a little bit shocked.”

Ella said she has been supporting her pal during this difficult time and said to not be fooled by the happy pictures on Instagram.

Asked if the pair could reunite, she added: “Too early to say because we haven’t been filming for so long, they haven’t seen each other in ages.

“So to be honest that would be a good few awkward episodes to watch, they have a lot to talk about.”
