CHLOE Sims and Dan Edgar have split for good after calling an end to their whirlwind Towie romance, The Sun Online can reveal.
The pair, who have suffered non-stop drama in their turbulent relationship since hooking up in Thailand, finally decided they are better off as friends.
One of 28-year-old Dan's close pals explained: "He is very much single."
They insisted: "I am really pleased how things have worked out between them. Dan and Chloe seem happier as just friends.
"I just don’t think it was meant to be. Dan and Chloe get along very well and they refuse to let what’s happened get in the way of their friendship.
"I think Dan just needs to be single for a bit. Chloe seems happy with the situation and has been very supportive to be fair."
The Sun revealed in March how Chloe and Dan, who had been friends for years, had struck up a shock romance in Thailand.
They were worried at the time that their friendship would be wrecked if the romance took a turn for the worse, with a source saying they feared "massive consequences".
The insider said: "Not only is their friendship at risk but Chloe's cousin Joey Essex is Dan's best friend. Joey and Chloe are more like brother and sister than cousins.
"Diags is also best friends with Dan, Joey and Chloe so if things go wrong with Chloe and Dan it will be spell disaster not only for them but for everyone concerned."
But things did indeed take a turn for the worse, with Dan forced to apologise to 36-year-old Chloe for sleeping with ex Amber Turner around the same time he was hooking up her.
The on-off pair had appeared to get their relationship back on track earlier this month after The Sun revealed she would "give him another chance".
But things rarely looked good for the troubled couple, with the pair often involved in fraught showdowns over their relationship on Towie.
Reps for Chloe and Dan declined to comment when contacted by The Sun Online.
