Love Island fans may have been saddened to hear that Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham’s fledgling relationship has bitten the dust, but one person who will be absolutely delighted to hear that Dani is single again is her dad Danny Dyer.
Danny and his wife Jo were reportedly anxious about the impact the high-profile relationship might have on their daughter’s career.
An un-named source told The Sun: “Her dad Danny and her family warned her early on that they didn’t think sticking by Jack was the best idea.
“They thought she’d be stronger alone.”

Danny and Jo are said to have advised their daughter against continuing her relationship with Jack but Dani “genuinely loved him and hoped it was forever.”
It’s notable that Jack hasn’t been pictured with Danny or any other members of the family since October.
