Dani Dyer has quit acting.

The 'Love Island' star has had a number of minor roles, including 'Vendetta' and 'Run for Your Wife' with her former 'EastEnders' actor dad Danny Dyer.

The 26-year-old reality - who is mum to two-year-old son Santiago with former partner Sammy Kimmence and is now expecting twin girls with footballer Jarrod Bowen - most recently had a cameo as pregnant cabby Jeanette on the BBC One soap, who was taken to the hospital by Mick Carter (Danny).

However, Dani - who won the ITV2 dating show in 2018 with then-partner Jack Fincham - has no desire to act anymore.

She told "I don’t think I’ll be acting again.

"I absolutely loved acting when I was younger. It was something that was so fun for me at first but then I took the 'Love Island' route. I’m enjoying the route that I’ve gone down."

The former 'Survival of the Fittest' contestant is not the only member of the Dyer family that could follow in Danny's footsteps, as Dani believes her 16-year-old sister Sunnie could make the most success out of all of them.

She added: "I think my sister will be the actress. We’ve always said that my sister will be the most successful out of us all."

Meanwhile, Dani - who is reuniting onscreen with her father for Channel 4's 'Absolutely Dyer: Danny and Dani Do Italy' - has confessed she's "petrified" of life with twins.

Although she's excited about expanding her family, she's not ready for the extra level of exhaustion.

She told Fabulous magazine: “It’s such a blessing and I’m so grateful, but I’m not going to lie, I’m petrified!

“Sleep deprivation is the worst. It’s a form of torture in some countries and I can totally see why.

"You’re just so tired. Santi was a nightmare for a good five months. I used to rock him to sleep and think: ‘I am never doing this again.’

“It’s going to be tough, but I know it’ll get better when they settle. Whereas in the beginning [with Santi], I thought: ‘I’m never going to sleep again. This is it.’”
