Dani Dyer set to join dad Danny on EastEnders after bagging BBC cabbie role

Love Island winner Dani Dyer will join her dad Danny Dyer on EastEnders next month after bagging a role on the hit BBC soap.

New mum Dani will take on the role of a cab driver.

A TV mole said: “Soap fans are going to be thrilled to see father and daughter acting opposite each other.

“Unlike some other celebrities who come on the show, she won’t be playing herself, she will be a cabbie who picks up Mick in the street."

Playing down the part as a one off, the insider added to The Sun: "But it’s only a small role and not one which bosses are planning on keeping as an ongoing character."

Due to the fact Dani and Danny are in the same Covid bubble, they will able to interact more on camera.

Producers are said to have already filmed scenes with Danny's character Mick crossing paths with Dani when she picks him up in her cab.

Dani's role is thought to be a small cameo rather than a repeat character.
