THE Only Way Is Essex is set to be shaken with new drama in tonight's episode as Dani Imbert is slammed over her drunken kiss.
The reality TV star – who enjoyed a smooch with show hunk Roman Hackett – is slammed by her co-star for giving him 'false hope'.
Dani, 23, who recently split from her ex Liam 'Gatsby' Blackwell, was seen in a war of words on the streets of Essex in a previous episode.
Despite kissing newcomer Roman, 20, in a dramatic twist last month, Dani was then seen fuming she didn't want to pursue anything with him – telling him: "I don't want [Liam], or you."
Now, a first look at tonight's episode has revealed the star admitted she had kissed Roman to her group of friends.
But after insisting that the pair are "just friends", she's slammed by co-star Harry Derbidge for giving Roman "false hope".

"Boy best friend? Do you mean Roman?" Harry can be seen asking after raising his hand in the air to ask a question.
Amy chimes in: "Did you sleep with him?" to which Dani reassures the group: "No, slow down – it sounds bad but I can kiss someone when I've had a drink and it can mean nothing.
"I feel like I should stop it because it's getting complicated now."
