Dan Edgar Age, Towie Career, Relationships
From Dan Edgar’s age to his relationship history, we’ve got everything there is to know about the Essex hunk – including exactly what happened with Chloe Sims…
Cheeky Essex boy Dan Edgar is quite the hit with the ladies with his pearly white smile and bouncy barnet, but his recent actions (of course, we’re talking about THE Chloe Sims/Amber Turner drama) has left viewers opinions of him somewhat divided.
To help you make up your mind, we’ve got the lowdown on the Towie heartthrob and what’s been going on in his love life…
Who Is Dan Edgar And When Did He First Join Towie?
Dan Edgar’s age is 29 and was born in Essex. Before joining the Towie cast in 2015, he worked as an electrician. Dan dated Kate Wright – who is now engaged to former footballer Rio Ferdinand – for four years before the show. The pair parted ways and after joining the reality TV series, Dan quickly became romantically linked with both Jessica Wright and Lauren Pope – of course, that sparked a whole load of drama between the two pals.
Kate then followed in her ex’s footsteps and joined the cast of Towie and the couple were back on and off (numerous times) until she quit the reality TV show.
In March 2017, more drama unfolded, but this time it wasn’t anything to do with Dan’s love life. The news emerged that Dan had been involved in an under wraps investment business, which scammed its customers out of around £450,000 by selling them discoloured diamonds. As a result, he was banned from starting up his own business for 15 years.
What Happened To Dan Edgar And Kate Wright?
Despite the couple having a rocky patch in 2016, Dan pulled off a romantic Love Actually style gesture during Towie’s Essexmas Christmas special which seemed to help the pair get back on track.
With the help of Diags, who dressed up as a turkey, Dan help up a series of cards for Kate through Danielle Armstrong’s shop window. The final card read: “I love you Kate, Merry Christmas”. Heart. Melted.
However, unfortunately, Dan’s romancing wasn’t enough to save the couple’s relationship and since then, Kate’s got engaged to former Man Utd captain Rio Ferdinand.
What About Dan and Frankie Gaff?
In 2017, Made In Chelsea’s Frankie Gaff was revealed to have had an affair with Dan despite being in a relationship with co-star Jamie Laing. The pair hooked up whilst on holiday in Ibiza as Jamie back filming for the show in England.
Although the couple apparently shared a smooch, nothing emerged afterwards and they went their separate ways.
Then It Was Dan And Amber Turner…

When Amber and Dan first met each other, she was already in a relationship with Jamie Reed. She revealed:
Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, she said: “Dan did turn my head and when I was with Jamie and that left me confused, but I absolutely never cheated on him in Tenerife.
“I would never do that, I’m a loyal person, and Dan had nothing to do with our break up.”
In typical Dan fashion, the pair then had an on-off relationship with neither of them wanting to commit to each other completely. In March 2019, Dan eventually called things off with Amber.
Dan Edgar and Chloe Sims…
The Essex heartthrob and reality star Chloe Sims struck up a romance whilst filming in Thailand. Speaking about their budding romance at the time, Chloe revealed:
“Me and Dan are making a go of it.
“We have grown close over four years of friendship. He could be the one.
“We’re spending a lot of time together off-camera.
“The idea that it was a holiday fling in Thailand made it sound cheap! I am not a fling type of girl and I wouldn’t cry my eyes out about a fling. There’s a lot of mutual respect there.
“We are not going to put any pressure on it or ourselves as the biggest thing for us both is that we were friends.
“It is really important for me to stay friends with him and not damage our friendship.”
Then It Went Pear Shaped…
The romance between the pair – who used to be close friends – was very short lived after Dan quickly ended things with Chloe and went back to his ex 25 year old Amber just a few days later.
Chloe revealed she’d lost two stone after finding out Dan had gone back to Amber following their separation.
Speaking about their brief relationship, she said:
“He is not a bad person but the way he has gone about it and let the public think of me.
“I feel like he destroyed nine years of me building myself up to be transparent on TV. I feel like he might as well have got a bulldozer.
The abuse I got every single day was ‘desperate, plastic s**g. Ugly’ – it was so bad. Every single day.
I don’t care how strong you are. I lost nearly two stone – was so skinny. It drove me mad. It was awful. I should have known better but I didn’t.
I don’t know how I didn’t know but you just get blinded by handsome men!”
“If it had been anyone else I would have pulled him up on everything, but don’t forget he was my friend for six years. He was a close friend, not a random guy I worked with. Me, Lauren and Diags were a squad, even when he was with Amber he would leave her to be with us.
We were in a really close friendship, so for him to lie and let those things go on TV and know he was humiliating me… That’s why I kept crying.
It wasn’t because I was so in love with Dan Edgar, it was because he had initiated something, it was because he had lied.”
Chloe Stood Her Ground…
Fortunately, Chloe didn’t compromise her reputation when it came to filming for the new show.
“I’m not leaving, that’s my show.”
And she’s admitted that she’s not filming any scenes with either Dan or Amber after the drama.
“I’ve refused filming with them. Amber was sacked from the show. “They’ve had to bring her back because she’s back with Dan.
“I understand that which is all well and good, but now you are back deliver your own storylines. Don’t use me for one.
“It is not fair on me. It would be two on one and I don’t need to do that.
