According to reports, Dani and Sam previously dated for a year before Danny Dyer’s daughter went on the ITV2 show and found love with salesman Jack.
‘They were together for about a year, but she never really got over him and they got back in touch quite quickly once she split from Jack,’ a pal added.
Jack and Dani won over the nation and took home £50,000 in prizemoney, however after a rocky few months they decided to split for good earlier this month.
The lad recently opened up about their breakup, admitting he still has a soft spot for his ex.
‘Honestly, I will always have a lot of love for her and we are on good terms, but it’s life, it just didn’t work out, I wish her all the best,’ he said. ‘There are a lot of feelings there because we’ve been through a lot together but we are on good terms… I still fancy her, of course.’
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, he added that he could ‘honestly say’ that their romance was ‘never for show’ because he doesn’t have the heart for it’.
He added: ‘I just want her to be happy.’
Dani herself proved their split was anything but acrimonious, as she hoped to always be mates with Jack.
In early April she told Simon Rimmer and Tim Lovejoy that going through the separation in the spotlight had been tough.
‘We broke up earlier this week. It’s just one of those things isn’t it?’ she began. ‘I’m okay think. I think I’m as well as it could be. We’ll always remain friends and stuff.’
Metro.co.uk contacted reps of Dani for comment.
