EastEnders actor Danny Dyer’s oldest daughter, Dani Dyer, is reportedly appearing on new reality show, Survival of the Fittest.

It’s a battle of the sexes series - dubbed the 'Winter Love Island' - where men and women will be pitted against each other in mental and physical challenges.

According to The Sun, Dani, 21, will be sent to the South African Savannah with other singletons, for the ITV2 show.

Dani is daughter to Danny, 40, and wife, Joanne Mas, and has two siblings, a sister, Sunnie and brother, Arty.

She’s been following in her dad’s footsteps, working as an actress for the past few years, and has a string of acting credits to her name. Her movie roles include parts in Age of Kill, starring Martin Kemp, We Still Kill the Old Way, starring Ian Ogilvy, and a few films dad also appeared in, including Vendetta and Doghouse.

Dani’s latest movie role is in a film called Heckle, a comedy-horror where a stand-up comedian is stalked by a mad heckler.

Danny has spoken about struggling to bring up daughters, admitting last year during filming of Channel 4 show, Parenting for Idiots: "I couldn't wait to have a boy because much as I love my girls with all my heart, I'm sick of trying to put a bikini on a Barbie. Honestly, it's graft mate."
