Danny Dyer has been proudly watching his 22-year-old daughter Dani become the nation's favourite on Love Island over the last few weeks - and he couldn't resist paying a sweet tribute to her on Twitter on Sunday evening. "I know she’s doing well....holding her own and all that b******s...but It’s gotta be declared...I proper miss my baby girl now... #firstborn #Dani #loveisland," he wrote. His adorable comments came as Dani made it official with her onscreen partner Jack on Sunday's show, as the pair officially became boyfriend and girlfriend.
Dani has captured the nation's hearts on Love Island
Danny has kept fairly quiet about his eldest daughter's appearance on the hit show, though he did take to social media again earlier this month to give his opinion of Dani's new beau. Taking Father's Day as the perfect opportunity, he shared a hilarious sky-diving photograph on Instagram, writing: "On me way to have a couple of cheeky tequilas with some slice of a geezer called Jack. #fathersday #loveisland." Sounds like Jack's got Danny's seal of approval!
Fans of the show are equally happy to see Dani and Jack getting on so well, with many commenting on Danny's sweet Twitter post to send their support. "She's my favourite. I'd be so proud if that was my daughter! #teamdani #LoveIsland," one follower said, while another posted: "She is making you proud, most genuine young lady in there, brought up with care and respect for others and herself! #Dani #LoveIsland #Winner2018."

The Eastenders star first broke his silence over Dani's appearance on the ITV show with another cheeky Instagram post - hinting that his second daughter, Sunnie, could be following in her big sister's footsteps one day. Poking fun at the reality show, Danny shared a photo of himself with 11-year-old Sunnie, and wrote: "Me and the Wife have come to accept the fact that we was put on the planet to reproduce Love Islanders. Oh well… Embrace it...Good luck in 2028 Sunnie."
