Everything was going all lovely and you were getting on with it and all of a sudden you sat me down.

Dani explained,

I wanted something different, I never took risks and I thought this could be a good one.

She clarified,

He didn’t like me. We didn’t really talk. It was very awkward. Oh my god, I’d walk into the room and it would be so awkward.

No, we didn’t talk. I think I was upset because we were very close and you’d spoke about it to everyone, I was the last &&&&er.

He continued,

I set you off, I put your suitcase in the boot all &&&king angry and I said, ‘go on just &&&&ing go and do what you got to do.’ I was petrified but it turned out well. I just became a viewer like everyone else and I didn’t have any contact with you and I just watched this very authentic vulnerable thing unfold.

Dani ended up winning the reality show with Jack Fincham, but the couple separated not long after the show concluded. Dani recently gave birth to her baby boy Santiago with her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.
