EastEnders star Danny Dyer will “probably cry” if he gets to meet his daughter’s Love Island boyfriend, his wife has said.

Joanne Mas also said that her husband, who plays Mick Carter in the BBC One soap, would love to make a cameo appearance in the ITV2 reality series, which is currently starring his daughter, Dani.

Mas told ITV’s This Morning: “Danny really likes Jack but I think Danny, when he does meet Jack (Fincham), big Danny, I think he will probably cry – ‘You’ve took my child away from me’. He’s really possessive.”

Asked if her husband would appear on Love Island, she said: “Yes! He would do a cameo on that show – he’d love that.”
