Actress, author, TV personality, designer and everyone’s favourite girl next door, at just 22 years old, Dani Dyer has already established herself as one of the UK’s brightest young stars.
Born in Canning Town, Dani is the daughter of EastEnders actor and namesake Danny. Having previously worked as an actor, it was when Dani joined ITV2’s Love Island in 2018 that she shot into the public consciousness. After winning over the public with her honesty, charm and humour on the show, Dani and her then partner Jack Fincham went on to win the series with over 80% of the vote.
Since winning Love Island, Dani has gone on to achieve great success in the fields of fashion, television, books and beauty.
In February 2019, Dani climbed Kilimanjaro with a team of celebrities including presenters Dan Walker and Anita Rani, former MP Ed Balls, and Strictly judge Shirtley Ballas, raising £2m for Comic Relief. Dani also visited the charity’s projects in Sierra Leone, learning about educational and empowering courses for women and girls to stand up against FGM.
April 2019 saw the release of her debut book ‘What Would Dani Do?’, a guide for young women including many autobiographical anecdotes. The book was an instant success and spent three weeks in the Sunday Times Bestsellers list, reaching number 4.
Dani has also earned her stripes in the fashion industry, where she has launched a number of best-selling capsule clothing and swimwear collections with online retailer In The Style. In addition, she has also launched her own strip eyelash range, Girl Code, with Irish brand SOSU.
Dani will be back on our screens in the autumn 2019 as the host of yet-to-be-announced TV series, which was filmed in Malta earlier in the year.
Dani made her stage debut in Nativity! At the Eventim Apollo in Dec 2018 alongside her Dad.
