TOWIE star Dan Edgar has shared that he’s now called in lawyers following his row with Ella Rae Wise.
Amber Turner, 29, and boyfriend Dan, 32, have been embroiled in drama with their co-star Ella after she hit out that he needs to keep his hands to himself" if he doesn't want to ruin his relationship.
Rumours circulated that Dan had been flirting with Ella – who is ten years his junior – despite being with Amber for over four years.
Ella said Dan “shouldn’t touch up other girls when he has a girlfriend,” adding that he was “hands-on” and coined him as “inappropriate.”
After the accusations, furious Dan threatened to pull out of filming the finale and Ella has admitted she was removed because neither he nor girlfriend Amber wanted to be around her.
The star has since taken to social media to defend himself and deny Ella’s accusations, and said he’s now “called in lawyers.”

After the first episode of Towie’s 30th series aired last night, Dan took to social media and said: “I wasn’t going to say anything regarding Towie but some of the madness that has happened over the past week has left me with no choice but to address it.
“The things that have been spoken about on the show are completely false. The person this has come from was taken out of filming this week for making false and very damaging allegations in the press which have now been retracted.
“I can’t say much on this matter as it is being dealt with legally. However please just bare this in mind when watching the show.”
Ella Rae told the MailOnline about the incident at a night club earlier this year.

"Dan needs to keep his hands to himself really. He shouldn't touch up other girls when he has a girlfriend," she said at the launch party ahead of The Only Way Is Essex's 30th series.
"He was hands-on and given he has a girlfriend, it was inappropriate… I'm the worst person he could have touched up in a club because I'm not going to keep it a secret.
"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 of the show added: "Dan put his hands around Ella's waist while they were in a club – nothing more."
Ella has since put a statement online which reads: "I want to want to make it clear that Dan Edgar did not touch me inappropriately without my consent.
"What I did mean was that I think how he has acted towards me while having a girlfriend is not OK.
