TOWIE’s Ella Rae Wise slams co-star Dan Edgar for ‘inappropriate’ behaviour

TOWIE star Ella Rae Wise has slammed Dan Edgar for acting ‘inappropriately’ in a nightclub and says his girlfriend Amber Turner shouldn’t trust him.

Ella, 22, told MailOnline that Dan, 32, ‘needs to keep his hands to himself’ and she was shocked he behaved in such a way given he’s in a long-term relationship with Amber, 29.

In an exclusive interview, Ella explained that Dan is yet to apologise for the incident, which allegedly took place during a night out earlier this year, and she’s been branded a ‘liar’ by her co-stars, including Amber’s close friends Chloe Meadows, 30, and Courtney Green, 27.

‘He was hands on’: TOWIE star Ella Rae Wise has slammed Dan Edgar for acting ‘inappropriately’ in a nightclub and says his girlfriend Amber Turner shouldn’t trust him 

Speaking at the launch of TOWIE’s 30th series, which returns to ITVBe on Sunday, Ella said: ‘Dan needs to keep his hands to himself really. He shouldn’t touch up other girls when he has a girlfriend.

‘He was hands on and given he has a girlfriend, it was inappropriate.

‘With his track record I don’t know how she can allow her man to go out.

‘I’m not the biggest fan of theirs and they’re not the biggest fans of me but I’m the worst person he could have touched up in a club because I’m not going to keep it a secret.

‘I’ve been called a liar, which is fine because I’ve been called a liar before on the show and I can see why they would have animosity towards me but if her boyfriend were to touch up someone – I’m not the best person because I am going to tell the truth.

‘Those girls automatically thought I was lying about it, but I wasn’t. Dan was horrible to me afterwards, but you’ll see on the new series.’

A source close to the show told MailOnline: ‘Dan put his hands around Ella’s waist while they were in a club – nothing more.’ 

MailOnline revealed in June that Amber’s relationship with Dan had been rocked following claims he ‘always wanted a piece of Ella.’ 

In a voice note that will be aired on the new series, Ella described her account of events to co-star Harry Derbidge, 28, and the allegation quickly circulated in Essex. 

Speaking in defence of Amber and Dan’s relationship, Chloe accused Ella of fabricating the incident and claims her only concern is raising her public profile.

At Monday’s launch, Chloe said: ‘I just think the person that started that rumour is starving, absolutely starving. She’s starving for storylines, clout, attention, fame; you name it she is gagging for it. Yes, I’m talking about Ella.’

Ella explained that tension between herself and Dan caused a rift in the cast and Amber and her close group of friends ostracised her.

She said: ‘The other group don’t let a lot of people in.

‘If they don’t like the look of you, they don’t want you in their group. With us, where we don’t comply and we won’t agree with everything they say, they would rather not get on with us and that sits completely fine with me because they’re not my people either.’

Ella, who’s previously admitted to having a ‘flirty relationship’ with Pete Wicks, 33, says the pair dated this series – but their romance has never gone further than a kiss.

She’s also not fazed by the couple’s 11-year age difference and says even her mum encourages her to date an older man.

‘I did have a few cheeky, little dates with Pete’, Ella explained.

‘We have never gone any further than a kiss. With us it can’t go any further than that because I don’t want to ruin our friendship because I appreciate him a lot as a person.

‘Age is nothing but a number and it’s more about their mindset than their age. I’m 22 but I’m going on 35. My mum said to me that I need an older man in my life.’
