Amber Turner has opened up about her romance with Dan Edgar – and why all her mates thought he was about to propose to her.
The blonde beauty, 27, was recently seen on a romantic date night with her beau, 30, on TOWIE.
Viewers were left on the edge of their seats when Dan declared his love for Amber and pulled out a jewellery box, but what lay inside probably wasn't what people were expecting.
Rather than an engagement ring, Dan presented Amber with her very own key for his flat – and she was thrilled.
Amber opened up about the moment during an exclusive chat with Mirror Online as she discussed teaming up with GENi Hair on their new home smoothing kit.

She told us: "So when Dan gave me a key to his flat, I was really happy and excited. I think that everything that happened in the series was building up to that moment, so it felt like it had all come together and was lovely. We are both very happy."
She added: "Everyone thought that Dan was going to propose, but it was obviously going to be a key for the flat as this is what we had been speaking about all series.
"So, it would only make sense for it to be that. When the time comes for a proposal, I think we would want it to be more private and just for us, so it’s intimate, special and romantic. I was super happy and so is he. "
Amber confessed she was excited about what officially moving in with Dan means for their future.
She said: "I had practically moved in anyway because I would always stay at his flat rather than my own. But it was just more of that next step where I had given up my flat and moved all my clothes in and everything I own. I think I’m excited about the fact that it is the next step and it will be our home together.

"To be honest, there wasn’t anything I wasn’t looking forward to, or dreading, as I had basically lived there with him anyway already and he’s alright to live with! Although, he does play on PlayStation quite a lot when he’s not working.
"I’m really looking forward to the future with Dan – I’d like to think that this is it now. We’re just taking everything at a steady pace and not rushing anything as we’ve just moved into together. Obviously in the future I do want marriage and children and this is something we have spoken about for when the time is right. We’ve both still got things we want to do and see and to accomplish before having children but it is something we both want together. "
Amber and Dan's romance hasn't always been plain sailing, and they briefly split last year.
But Amber says it's brought them closer together.
She told us: "I think we have both realised that if we were going to get back together then it was going to be for the long-haul and his attitude, behaviour and mindset had completely changed.

"He was in such a good headspace and everything has been really good between us. I always knew it would be, but I think that people are ready to settle down at different stages of their life and it was just getting on the same page and realising what we both want. He has not given me any reasons to doubt him, he’s been great. "
During the coronavirus lockdown, Amber has stepped up her home haircare routine by using GENi Hair products, and she says she can't get enough of them.
She said: "I always love to make time for self-care. I love running a bath in the evening, putting on a face mask and putting a hair treatment in – it’s just something I love doing, that’s for me. So, as part of my self-care routine I use my GENi Hair products – an at home treatment that’s takes all the frizz or flyaways out of your hair.
Everyone thought Dan was going to propose
"It’s so simple and easy to use and takes only 40 min and gets salon perfection every time. It’s cut my blow dry time in half too. Plus I know it will be silky and glossy for longer as one treatment last up to 12 washes too .
"When we are allowed to do so, I want to have a girly pamper night. Dan knows that I will be having the girls over as soon as I can – all of us girls love pampering. So, I can’t wait to introduce the girls to GENi products so they can try it and see the amazing results of the hair treatment. I think Dan will get a bit jealous and want to get involved as well – he loves taking care of his hair."
Amber added: "With the previous lockdown it did mean that we had lived together for quite a few months. I relaxed straight into living together – I don’t tend to wear much makeup during the day anyway. Having my GENi hair products has been amazing though, because my hair lasts for so long and it’s so silky and smooth and it requires basically zero effort once it’s done. So, it’s been a life saver for me as my hair always felt lovely even though I wasn’t wearing much makeup, it just made me feel a little bit better in myself. "

It was a key to his flat
Amber said that once lockdown began, she tried to find as many at-home treatments as she could so she didn't have to miss out too much on her salon visits.
She said: "To keep myself looking and feeling good during lockdown – I basically tried to find as many at home kits as I could and became the queen of at home self-care. So, I tinted my own eyebrows to make me feel a bit more alive. I had at home gel kits so I was doing my nails myself and obviously had my at home GENi hair products for my hair which was like having loads of hair treatments in a hair salon but in the comfort of my own home so my hair was always looking and feeling amazing."
