Love Island: Jack excited to meet Dani's parents
Love Island’s Jack Fincham is set to meet new girlfriend Dani’s celebrity father Danny Dyer on Wednesday.
Two weeks since the couple won the dating show, Jack has already met most of Dani’s family and says he is excited at being introduced to her father and mother, Joanne Mas.
“I’m looking forward to it, it’ll be fun,” he said. “I like meeting new people anyway.”
Their introduction was delayed as Dani’s parents have been on holiday in Florida, which they booked months previously in the belief their daughter wouldn’t last for a whole season of the dating show.
They have chatted with their daughter’s new partner on video calls, however, and Dani says her father already “loves” Jack and plans to “guide him in the right direction”.
Jack said he hoped Danny Dyer, who stars in Eastenders, would “sort of guide me in what life is going to be like now.”
“It’s all so new to me, and he’s been in that kind of industry,” he said.
Dani, who has a career as an actress, has said she and Jack have been inseparable since leaving the Love Island villa, and now are planning to move in together.
In June, Danny Dyer was interviewed on Good Evening Britain about the show, on a panel that also included actress Pamela Anderson and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who said he did not watch Love Island.
“He seems like a good kid,” Dyer said of Jack. “We’re just watching it unfold.”
As well as meeting each other’s families, Dani Dyer has also visited the office where Jack worked as a pen salesman before the show, and witnessed him demonstrating his professional skills.
“He’s like Leonardo DiCaprio from Wolf of Wall Street,” Dani said as she watched her boyfriend market stationary supplies over the phone.
“He’s very alluring.”
