The friends at one point went to the beach together and walked side by side on the sand.

The driver was surrounded by friends on the boat and they seemed to be in a festive mood.

After we went to the beach today, the party continued into the evening as the group smiled as they stood on the deck.

Daniel is currently believed to be single after breaking up with his childhood sweetheart Jemma Boskovich in 2016.

He was linked to model Jessica Gomes in 2018, but neither party has ever confirmed the rumors.

It comes after a TikTok star recalls a wild night she once shared with the driver in Ibiza.

On Thursday, Sara Ayter – who has more than 4.6k followers – described Daniel as the “coolest human being” after apparently inviting her and two friends to a boat party during a meeting on the nearby island of Formentera in 2019.

In several videos, Sara said Daniel had a “big heart” before explaining that she had no idea who he was until long after the party was over.

“We were taking pictures in Beso Beach, and three guys came up to us and said they were going back to Ibiza in their private boat and asked us to join them,” she began.

“We didn’t know what to do, but in the end we went as we said, ‘we only live once’.”

After enjoying a thrilling ride across the islands, the trio were asked to join Daniel and his friends at a house party – and they came to believe he was famous thanks to seeing his ‘blue check mark on Instagram’.

“Then we finally went to their house – it was the best house I’ve ever been in,” she added.

‘We had a drink, we played games, we stayed overnight. The next day I swam in the pool and Daniel was the only one awake. I was cold and he asked me if I wanted his shirt, so I swam with his shirt.’

While there’s no suggestion that anything romantic happened between the couple, Sara was incredibly complimentary about how the star behaved towards her and her friends.

“He was there all the time making sure we were okay. They were so, so nice. He was the coolest person,’ she said.

“Daniel was dancing, joking, laughing all the time. Like has a big heart. Now we finally know who he is!’
