Who is Dani Dyer? Love Island 2018 contestant and Danny Dyer’s daughter who went on Survival of the Fittest

DANNY Dyer has a daughter called Dani - and she's a barmaid, actress and aspiring reality TV star

Dani briefly became a contestant on Survival Of The Fittest... and now she's making her name on Love Island 2018. Here is the lowdown on her.

Dani is the oldest of 40-year-old EastEnders actor Danny’s three daughters and has worked as a pint-puller at The Owl pub in Loughton, Essex.

She has starred in eight movies — including Brit action thriller Age Of Kill opposite Martin Kemp, 56 — and filmed upcoming drama Heckle about a comedian’s insane stalker last year.

Last year, The Sun revealed Danny was hoping to secure the talented youngster a part after seeing how good she was on screen.

A source said: “Danny reckons he has the power to get Dani in as a permanent star on EastEnders.

“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.

“Given how popular he is on the show she is in a great position, too.”

The Sun Online exclusively revealed how Dani had signed up for Love Island and she promised her EastEnders star dad Danny she wouldn't be kissing anyone in the villa.

Aside from cheats, Dani says she hates people that only date her because of her famous father and admitted she’s worried about flirting on TV.

Like any 22-year-old, Dani is on social media - she has active accounts on Instagram and Twitter.

Dani joined Survival Of The Fittest, which sees a group of hot, young singles sent to the South African Savannah to take part in the ultimate battle of the sexes, involving mental and physical challenges.

However, almost before her adventure had begun it all ended in disaster, when she fell headfirst down a waterslide while filming her very first challenge.

The spectacular accident left Dani with a dislocated shoulder just a day after entering the ITV2 show’s lodge in the South African wild.

She was treated on site then taken to hospital – and the severity of her injuries meant that the prospective reality star was forced to quit.

A source told The Sun's Bizarre Column: "It was a really nasty fall. Dani knew straight away she had done serious damage but tried to continue as she didn’t want to seem like a wuss.

"It was too much, though, and she was taken to hospital."

 Dani has built up quite the following on Instagram too
