Danny's daughter, Love Island winner Dani Dyer, responded: "Hope she's OK."

EastEnders actor Danny is gearing up to become a grandparent for the first time himself as 24 year old Dani is pregnant with her first child.

He told OK! magazine last month: "We're excited. It's the start of a new era. I've just got to try to get my head around the fact I could be a great-grandad by the time I'm 60. That's what freaks me out.

"Then a great-great-grandad by the time I'm 80. But I should've known this was coming. I had her [Dani] when I was 18."

He continued: "She's gonna be a great mum. And there is no advice to give on that, really, there's not a book you can read. It’s all b******s.
