Danny Dyer wept this week while watching his daughter Dani cry on Love Island, his wife has revealed.
The EastEnders actor, 40, has been gripped by the ITV2 show but was left “choked up” when Dani discovered her partner Jack Fincham, 26, cheated on past girlfriends.
Danny’s wife Jo Mas, 41, said: “Danny wasn’t happy at first when she was going into the show but at the moment he thinks Dani has done well with her behaviour.
“He got a bit choked up when she was sad about finding out Jack was a t***.
"That’s his daughter and they have a very close bond.”
Danny, who plays Mick Carter, wants her to toughen up on the show. And he has been desperately missing the 21-year-old and even asked Jo if she left him a Father’s Day card.
Jo said: “He wishes she’d be a bit like me when it comes to emotions, as he thinks I’m hard work and I don’t give anything away. Basically not a melt.
“He said to me the other day, ‘Babe I really miss Dani, do you?’
“She hadn’t even been gone a week. I said, ‘Nope, I’m loving the no drama’.
“He already asked if she left a Father’s Day card – of course she has. Dani has been hurt by boys but Dani is sensitive, she’s emotional losing a water bottle at home.”
Love Island got off to a sizzling start on Monday with three million viewers, giving ITV2 its biggest ratings of all time. The show pairs men and women in a villa in Majorca, with £50,000 up for grabs if they find love.
Dani and Jack got back on track after their fallout, even locking lips on Friday’s show, which saw Kendall Rae-Knight dumped. Three new contestants join tonight.
But Jo thinks the blokes in the villa aren’t all that: “They’re young and don’t have a clue.”
