Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell has revealed his new flame Dani Imbert has confessed her love for him.
The TOWIE star, 32, said of Dani, 23: ‘She’s got drunk a couple of times and like, it might have slipped and she’s like, “Oh! Sorry!”‘
He added: ‘But obviously they say when you’re drunk, your feelings do come out.’
Moving fast: Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell, 32, has revealed his new flame Dani Imbert, 23, has confessed her love for him
The TV personality’s comments came when he was asked by co-star Bobby Norris on FUBAR radio whether he or Dani ‘had dropped the love bomb’.
Liam told Bobby and his co-host Brooke Odun: ‘I do really like her. I haven’t dropped it from my side yet. But, who knows? Hopefully, in the near future I will. Just seeing how it goes.’
He added: ‘I can feel myself sort of getting there definitely like. I definitely, I like her a lot. I do like her a lot, yeah.’
The pair, who met after friends set them up on the show, have been dating for two months but are still not official, as Liam explained: ‘She’s still waiting for that. We’re just trying to get to know each other a hundred percent. It’s been very, very intense.’
Whoops: The TOWIE star said of Dani: ‘She’s got drunk a couple of times and like, it might have slipped and she’s like, “Oh! Sorry!”‘
He went on: ‘Where we were just dating on the show, obviously dating in the real world, away from the television is a lot different to dating on TV.’
In May, Liam and Dani’s relationship hit a bump in the road on an episode of TOWIE when Courtney Green suggested to Dani that her love interest was still sending messages to other women.
Dani didn’t take the accusation lightly as she branded Courtney, 25, a ‘s**t-stirrer’ during a heated argument.
‘I’m fuming…you’re a s**t-stirrer!’: During last month’s TOWIE, Dani slammed Courtney Green for suggesting her beau Liam was messaging other women
‘Courtney, you on the other hand, have purposefully, spitefully tried to get involved and potentially f**k up my new relationship,’ Liam said to the brunette beauty.
Dani added: ‘You cause a lot of drama Courtney. I’m fuming, I’m thinking he’s messaging other girls!’
Courtney had implied Liam was keeping his options open as she discussed the moment he failed to defend Chloe Meadows, 28, and her relationship, amid accusations she was interested in Roman Hackett, 19.
She responded to the couple: ‘You know Liam, I’ve said it in front of you, I really like you, my intentions… I love you two together, that wasn’t my intention at all. That would never be my intention, I’m not that type of person.’
‘But I don’t understand why you said it like that?’ Dani fired back.
‘Because I was trying to compare, I was comparing the situations,’ Courtney said before Chloe interjected: ‘We were trying to draw a parallel.
‘She felt like you could have protected my relationship, so we felt we shouldn’t have to protect your relationship.’
Yikes: Courtney, 25, had implied Gatsby was keeping his options open as she discussed the moment he failed to defend Chloe Meadows, 28, and her relationship
Dani was less than impressed by their explanation as she retorted: ‘But you don’t need to try and throw a spanner in the works and s**t-stir either but you still did.’
‘I wasn’t s**t-stirring,’ Courtney hit back.
Dani said: ‘You can say as much as you want that it wasn’t malicious, but I feel like you know what you’re doing and I feel like it was b***hy, I feel like it was spiteful.
‘You’re meant to be his friend,’ the blonde beauty added as Courtney appeared on the verge of tears.
Courtney’s friend Amber Turner, 27, interrupted as she defended her pal: ‘You’re making out that she’s made up a comment.
Angered: Dani confronted Courtney and said: ‘You cause a lot of drama Courtney. I’m fuming, I’m thinking he’s messaging other girls’
‘It came out of your mouth,’ she said, motioning towards an irritated Gatsby who rolled his eyes.
Dani defended her man as she responded: ‘Yes, but it was taken out of context.’
‘I have stated it to every single person,’ Courtney decisively replied as tensions soared among the group. ‘I know Liam, I know the way he said it. I’ve apologized for it. You can take the apology or not take the apology.’
Dani – who works for Jessica Stone Ltd on clothing retail site ASOS – met reality star Liam on a blind date.
