Dani Dyer hits out at report Danny Dyer is set to fight Jack Fincham

She's not too impressed with the idea

| Updated:

Dani Dyer has hit out at a report her dad, Danny Dyer, is set to fight Jack Fincham in a charity boxing match.

The Sun on Sunday had said the EastEnders actor was being lined up to face the Love Island star – who is dating his daughter – in the ring for Boxing With The Stars in June.

But Dani has tweeted that it’s absolute nonsense and isn’t happening.

Jack retweeted her message and agreed saying “I know, wtf is that about.”

A source had told the newspaper: “Jack’s a bit of a pro in the ring, having boxed for most of his adult life.

“Organisers want to give him a real challenge and know coming head to head with Danny would give him the ultimate jitters.

“This time the match will be televised. It would be guaranteed viewing gold and raise tons for charity in the process.”

Jack has signed up for the charity boxing event and is in training, with organisers determined to land the 41-year-old actor as his opponent.

Boxing With The Stars was set up by Danny’s EastEnders co-star Jake Wood, who plays Max Branning, during a break from the soap in 2016.

Danny recently admitted on The Jonathan Ross Show he “got it wrong” when he told his daughter not to appear on Love Island because he was very proud of her on the reality show.

He said: “She is a beautiful little soul. I did tell her not to do [Love Island]… but I got it wrong… She did it with grace and dignity.

“She did find a geezer, but she didn’t do none of that [sex on the show]… I said to her, ‘If you’re going to do it, win it.’

“She is quite a vulnerable little thing and I think she showed that vulnerability, she is a normal kid. I think people because of me had a perception of her, but she was anything but that.”
