Danny Dyer is heading into the Love Island villa and has a message for Jack

James Dawson

He made the announcement this morning

It’s official, Danny Dyer is heading into the Love Island villa for the ‘meet the parents’ episode of the show.

The news comes after it was thought the 40-year-old would be unable to appear due to prior commitments.

Dyer wrote on Twitter this morning: “I’ve only gone and made the shortlist for the TV choice awards. If you fancy it whack a vote my way… right… I’m off to the villa.. to sign my future son in laws canvas… lovely.”

The ‘canvas’ Danny is making reference to is the image Jack has of the elder Dyer in his room.

Though presumably, Jack should be worried. Very worried. As any ‘future son in law’ might be.

The senior Dyer’s daughter, Dani, has been paired up with Jack since the beginning of the show – with the two of them now officially boyfriend and girlfriend.

A hilarious episode of television is on the cards after it was revealed that Jack has a poster of Danny Dyer up on his bedroom wall back home, which, means things could get awkward after they inevitably win the £50,000 first prize and return home.

On the show, Dani admitted: “I don’t know what film it is, but Jack has got a poster of it. Not Dad’s face.

“If it was Dad’s face I’d have to end it now – I couldn’t walk in and see my dad on top of me and him.”

A source had previously told the Sun: “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.

“He has things already lined up during his time off, but there is a chance he could do a U-turn and change his mind to support Dani. The show has really grown on him.

“But as things stand, he has prior commitments and won’t be joining his daughter in Mallorca.”
