Dani Dyer says appearing on EastEnders with her dad Danny made her 'so ill'

DANI Dyer has admitted starring in EastEnders alongside her dad Danny made her "so ill" with worry.

Soap fans begged for a double-Dan spin off after the Love Island star made a cameo as Mick Carter's taxi driver back in June.

Mick was rushing to the scan of wife Linda's pregnancy when he jumped into a black cab driven by Jeanette – a pregnant taxi driver played by actor Danny's daughter Dani.

Disaster struck when Jeanette's water broke and Mick was forced to take the wheel and drive her to the hospital.

Mick missed Linda's appointment and helped to deliver the baby.

The scenes made EastEnders fans chuckle, with some even asking for a spin-off with Danny and Dani.

But the 24-year-old confessed she doubts that'll ever happen.

She said the wait between filming the scenes and the episode airing was agonising because everyone was talking about it on social media.

Dani revealed: "I just didn’t think it through. I didn’t realise the anxiety it would cause me. Like the build up.

I just didn't think it through…

"I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m so ill. I’m so ill. I just can’t.’"

She said she knew people were "either going to love it or hate it" and despite the backlash from some viewers, it was “fun” working with her dad.

She also let slip that as a “massive fan of the show” she probes her dad for info on upcoming storylines.

Dani added on the All Round Mind podcast: "I don’t wanna put my dad in it, but I do ask him some questions sometimes."

But she quickly added: “I don’t wanna get him in trouble at all, so I’m gonna leave that one there."

As to future acting opportunities she said she’d consider them if "the right part comes up", but added that she’s now concentrating on her YouTube channel.

The TV star said she wished she’d done it earlier but she "lost her confidence" after winning Love Island.
