BREAKING: Dan Osborne’s future on TOWIE is finally revealed

Dan Osborne was recently suspended from The Only Way Is Essex – and now it's been confirmed he's gone for good.

The reality star was temporarily banned from the show earlier this year after a domestic abuse scandal involving his ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin.

Dan's aggressive behaviour toward Megan came to light when two tapes were leaked to police in which he could reportedly be heard verbally abusing her and threatening her as she sobbed in the background.

The 23-year-old, who recently became a father for the second time in February when his current girlfriend Jacqueline Jossa welcomed a baby girl, was suspended from TOWIE at the height of the scandal.

Now the show's bosses have revealed he won't be returning for any future episodes. "Dan was suspended during the last series of TOWIE, and Lime Pictures and ITV have since decided he will not be returning to the show," ITV producers said in a statement this evening.

"We wish him luck in the future."

Earlier today Dan hit back at media reports that he had begged the show's producers to let him return for the upcoming TOWIE Marbella special, saying it was his decision not to appear.

"@CloserOnline this is COMPLETE lies.. NEVER has Jacqueline said this.. And I've NEVER begged any producer for absolutely anything.. In fact I was the one that said I wouldn't be going Marbella cause me and jac have a holiday lol.." he wrote, posting a screenshot of an article from Closer magazine. 

Whatever the situation, it seems Dan definitely won't be returning to our screens any time soon.
