‘Devastated’ Dani Dyer reveals she was turned down for Eastenders

Love Island winner and nation's sweetheart Dani Dyer revealed that she went on the show after she was turned down for a part on Eastenders.

In an interview with the Daily Star on Sunday, she told the tabloid that the BBC was considering her for a part on the show, before deciding she wasn't quite right for the role.

'I don’t know about Eastenders. They wouldn’t let me on it,' she said.

The reality TV star feels that her Dad Danny Dyer's character on the show was a reason for her not getting it. 

'I think it’s because my dad is already on it, there would be a massive outrage,' she said. 

A source told the Daily Star that Dani was 'heartbroken' over the news that she didn't get the part.

We're sure Eastenders are gutted they didn't take her!
