Dani Dyer has admitted stomach-churning anxiety after filming scenes with her famous dad for EastEnders.
The former Love Island winner did a series of Insta stories asking her 3.4m followers to ask her some questions after being inactive for a while, captioning the first story: "Been so quiet on here."
One fan asked the influencer: "What was it like being on EastEnders with your dad?"
Dani shared a picture of her and her dad Danny Dyer on set and said she had fun and didn’t hesitate to say yes when asked to appear on the show.

However, the star had anxiety while waiting for the show to air. "I really loved it," Dani said. "We had so much fun!
"When I got asked to do it I just said yes not thinking about the anxiety it would cause me waiting for it to be aired."
The TV personality has always been close to her dad since a young age. She says they have a ‘special bond’ and loved working with him.
"But I loved working with my dad, we have such a special bond and I’m really lucky to be able to work with him."
This isn’t the first time they have shared the screen together, she has previously appeared as an extra in several of her dad’s films including Vendetta, Run For Your Wife, Doghouse and The Other Half.

Dani joined the EastEnders family earlier this month as a cab driver.
Producers were particularly pleased with the casting because Danny, 43, and Love Island winner Dani, 24, are already in the same Covid bubble, which requires fewer filming restrictions.
She previously applied for a role on EastEnders but, after being knocked back, decided to opt for Love Island instead.
While answering her fans' questions, she shared adorable pictures of her son, Santiago – who she gave birth to six months ago with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.

Another fan asked if she's been watching Love Island, which kicked off this week for its seventh series.
The 24-year-old simply answered: "Yes! I love watching Love Island I forgot that I was In there sometimes, but I’ll be watching it every single night at 9pm."
Dani and Jack Fincham won Love Island together in 2018
Dani appeared on the reality show looking for love in 2018 and won the fourth season with ex-boyfriend Jack Fincham, 29.
The pair stole the hearts of the public on and off screen but split in April 2019.
