Danny Dyer ‘won’t visit Love Island villa’ to see daughter Dani

Fans will be disappointed

| Updated:

EastEnders actor Danny Dyer reportedly won’t be heading into the Love Island villa to visit his daughter Dani Dyer if she makes it until the end.

Usually, the islanders’ loved ones enter the villa as part of the ‘meet the parents’ episode towards the final of the reality show.

However, fans might be disappointed as The Sun claims Danny has prior work commitments which could prevent him visiting the Majorca villa.

An insider told the publication: “Danny had booked time off work long before his daughter Dani had any inkling she would be going on Love Island.

“All his time off the soap had to be pre-booked with EastEnders to stop all the cast being off work at the same time.”

However, the source suggested “there is a chance” Danny could still change his mind and fly to Spain to meet Dani’s boyfriend Jack Fincham.

But ITV2 has told ED!: “There are no current plans for any of the families to appear on the show.”

Danny, who plays Mick Carter in the BBC soap, has been rooting for his daughter during her time in the villa.

Last month, he admitted he was really missing his “baby girl”.

Danny penned a touching message to Dani on Twitter shortly before she and Jack officially became girlfriend and boyfriend.

He tweeted: “I know she’s doing well… holding her own and all that [expletive]… but it’s gotta be declared… I proper miss my baby girl now.”


Meanwhile, last month Dani’s mum Joanne Mas said Danny got “choked up” when he saw Dani wrestle with her feelings over Jack.

Dani was hurt when Jack said in a game of Truth Or Dare that he would consider re-coupling with now-dumped islander Hayley Hughes. 

Speaking of how Danny reacted to his daughter’s tears, Jo told the Sunday People: “He obviously got a bit choked up when she was sad about finding out that Jack was a [expletive].

“That’s his daughter and they have a very close bond.”

Just last week, Danny appeared on the one-off special of Good Evening Britain and discussed how he feels about his daughter being on the show.

The hardman actor admitted he didn’t want his daughter to go on the programme.

He said: “I didn’t want her to do it. You fear as a father but it’s entertainment.

“It’s a game show and there’s 50 grand at stake which is a lot of dough and Dani’s going to win it.”

And it seems Dani and Jack are the favourites to win the show, so far.
