BBC Celebrity Antiques Road Trip: Why EastEnders legend Danny Dyer gave his daughter the same name as him


EastEnders legend Danny Dyer is not the only member of his family with the same name as him.

Many fans of soap will know that the actor is a father of three, with his eldest daughter also named Dani.

Dani Dyer, 25, was born in 1996 when her father was only 19. His mother, Joanne Mas, first met Danny when she was 14.

They also have two other children; Sunnie, 14, and Arty, 7.

During an episode of Jonathan Ross in 2018, Danny Dyer appeared as a guest and was asked why he was calling his daughter the same name as him.

He goes on to say, “We thought we were going to have a son and I was going to call my son Danny.”

Danny explains that they decided to stick with the name and just put an “i” at the end.

Her daughter rose to fame in 2018 when she appeared on the ITV2 reality show Love Island in 2018.

After more than six weeks on the show, Dani eventually made it to the final with Jack Fincham where the couple won the competition.
