He’s often pictured with his on-screen wife Linda Carter aka Kellie Bright but now Danny Dyer has shared a rare photo with the real love of his life.
The EastEnders star posted a picture on Instagram as he went out on a date with his wife, Joanne.
“On my way 4 a posh kebab with my beautiful wife #HisnHerDerbys #middleagedLuv,” he wrote.
Joanne took the selfie as Danny is seen in the driver’s seat with a huge grin on his face.
Many of his fans were delighted at seeing the picture of the couple “looking so happy and in love” as one put it, with lots wishing them a good night out.
The snap gained more than 21,000 likes within a few hours of being posted.
Danny and Joanne, both 40, have been together for decades.
They met when they were just 14 and went on to have three children together, Dani, 22, Sunnie, 11, and Arty, five.
They tied the knot in 2016 at an intimate ceremony in Hampshire.
On their wedding day, Danny, who plays Mick Carter in EastEnders, told Hello! magazine: “To be standing here with the girl I grew up with – looking so beautiful in her wedding dress – that is a lovely thing.
“Jo is my best girl – the love of my life. Without her, I would be nothing.”
The couple faced rumours of trouble in their relationship last year, but daughter Dani dismissed the speculation by saying the pair are “really strong” and “good” together.
The couple’s eldest daughter has recently been following in her father’s footsteps by becoming a TV star. Dani was due to appear in ITV2’s Survival Of The Fittest but was forced to quit before the show had barely begun due to a shoulder injury.
She’s also had a few small parts in a number of films and is tipped to be a star of the future.
A source once told The Sun Danny even has hopes of her joining him on EastEnders.
They said: “He has been putting the odd word in with the producers and has even brought her down to the set once or twice.
“Dani has the potential to be a big star and her dad is hugely supportive of her.”
However, Dani told MailOnline she was ‘banned’ from appearing in the soap, saying: “They wouldn’t let me in it. They won’t let me and are like, ‘It ain’t going to happen.’
“I think it’s because my dad is already on it so if I went on it there would be a massive outrage.”
Meanwhile, Danny recently said that he’s sometimes “misunderstood” and, just like his character Mick, he’s a family man.
Danny said in a recent interview he loves that the soap’s executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins “got” this about him when he cast him as the pub landlord.
He told the Daily Star: “When they asked me to possibly do EastEnders I assumed it was going to be a gangster, go up against Phil Mitchell, come in with a sawn-off shotgun.
“It was the complete opposite. One of the first things Dominic said to me was ‘you’re going to be an alpha male, love your family, you’re going to have a gay son, he’s going to come out to you and you’re going to be fine with it’.”
He added: “I loved that. Dominic got me [despite] never meeting me before.”
