Love is in the air for TOWIE rising stars Little Chris and Danni Park-Dempsey.
Our show insiders say the pair became increasingly close towards the end of the last series of The Only Way Is Essex as Little Chris took a shine to the bubbly Essex girl - the show's first black character.
And they are set to go on a date tonight at the wrap party for series five at the Sugar Hut.
Chris Drake, 24, nick-named Little Chris, posted pictures of the pair snuggling up on Twitter when they were out in Brighton on Tuesday night.
He wrote: "Myself with the lovely @MisPark_Dempsey :)) she so so funny xx"
In another tweet, he added: "Myself and the lovely @MisPark_Dempsey but this time in (sic) her onsie on the way home:)"
A friend said: "They started getting close towards the end of the last series. In Marbella, Chris told Danni he was keen to take things further.
"Danni really likes him - he is a lot of fun. Watch this space."
Both Chris and Danni, 21, are expected to have bigger roles when sixth series starts on July 22.
The Marbella Special was screened on ITV2 last night.
