He's her type on paper!
Love Island star Dani Dyer is already winning over reality TV lovers up and down the country. And when Now caught up with her just hours before she entered the villa in sunny Mallorca, we were fan girling, too!
Here the 21-year-old Essex girl gives us the lowdown on what her EastEnders actor dad Danny Dyer is really like, having her heart broken and how last year’s cheeky winner Kem caught her eye.
Hi, Dani! Do you think potential boyfriends are scared of your dad?
No! He’s not scary. Boys I chat to obviously know of him, but I’ve not brought many boys home. Some have said, ‘Oh, your dad…’ but I think most boys are always nervous meeting a girl’s dad for the first time.
Have you ever had your heart broken?
Yeah, and it was horrible. I’d been with him for about three and a half years, but I think it needed to happen to make me a strong person.
Who would have been your type from a previous series?
I would have liked Kem [Cetinay, last year’s winner]. He’s funny. People have asked, ‘Are you gonna go for an Essex boy?’ We’ll have to wait and see…
What will people be surprised to learn about you?
Some people say I’m a little bit scatty, but I do like to have really good chats. If someone is down, I’ll be the one to have a heart-to-heart with them.
Are you the sort of girl who’ll make the first move?
Oh no, I’ll wait. But they usually know that I’m interested!
