How did Dani Dyer pay tribute to her dad?

Dani hasn’t had the easiest of times lately, what with her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence being sentenced to three and a half years in jail for conning two pensioners out of some money.

However, the 2018 Love Island winner seemed to put all that to one side as she wished her dad many happy returns on social media.

In one of the pictures, she can be seen giggling with Danny as the pair cosy up on the sofa.

There’s also a clip showing the EastEnders star having fun while he and Dani were recording their podcast, Sorted with the Dyers.

Dani finished the message with the words, “Love you millions,” and two kisses.
