The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has reportedly decided not to enter the reality show house when the new series kicks off tomorrow evening (27.08.15) after negotiations with producers broke down.

A source told Mirror Celeb: "He was in talks to go on the show but has decided this year is not the right time for him."

Dan - who was axed from the ITVBe show after recordings of him threatening to stab his ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin emerged earlier this year - has been widely linked to a stint on the show for a number of months.

However, he's now taken to Twitter to rubbish the rumours, insisting he was never in talks with Channel 5 bosses.

The 24-year-old hunk - who has 19-month-old son Teddy with Megan and six-month-old daughter Ella with his 'EastEnders' actress fiancee Jacqueline Jossa - wrote: "Keep seeing in the press that Im going on CBB, I was never meant to have been & were just rumours. But big fan of the show & will be watching! (sic)"

In addition to not wanting to leave his wife-to-be at home alone with their baby daughter, Dan is also currently still touring with the male strip troupe The Dreamboys and has appearances scheduled until the end of October.
