If you’ve spent seven weeks gearing up for Danny Dyer’s appearance on Love Island, we’ve got some bad news…
A preview for Sunday night’s ‘meet the parents’ episode of the ITV2 dating series has confirmed that while the EastEnders actor does share a conversation with his daughter Dani and her boyfriend Jack, he won’t be in the villa itself.
Instead, the older Dyer appears via video link – although that doesn’t seem to dampen the spirits of his daughter Dani. The brief teaser shows her and Jack giggling in front of a screen showing her famous dad joking: “Where is he? I’m going to kill him, where is he?”
Yeah, good luck Jack…
- When are the parents entering the Love Island villa?
- When is the Love Island final?
- Love Island megafan Stormzy bumps into new Jack and new Laura at the airport
But while Dani looks delighted by the sight of her father, Love Island fans were less than impressed with the latest twist:
We’ve been waiting 8 WEEKS for Danny Dyer to go into the villa, and all we get is a skype call??? #LoveIsland

In fact, they felt about as bummed as Alexandra when she found out Alex dug a sports car more than her…

For some, it was the only reason they had stayed tuned all this time.
Danny Dyer isn't going in the villa? That's the only reason I've been watching for the last three weeks while it's been dragging on, in hope that he'd turn up #loveisland

Still, at least we get the prospect of Alex meeting Alexandra’s parents. That’s gotta be awkward, right?
Just realised Alex and Alexandra are gonna be meeting each other’s parents this should be interesting #LoveIsland
