Actor Danny Dyer and his Love Island star daughter Dani will be on our screens again.

Dyer has left his role as Mick in EastEnders and is reportedly set to make new shows for E4.

Back in January, the star revealed he was leaving his role after nine years on the soap.

Now it's said his next career move will be to travel the world with his darling daughter Dani for a new series.

A TV insider told The Sun: 'Nobody would have predicted this would have been his first move, even though he did say at the time he was keen to "try some other stuff".'

It's hoped that Dani will attract a younger audience.

It's just one potential career move for Danny, after it was revealed that I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here also has their eyes on him.

Last month it was said that Dyer is now the 'number one target' for ITV bosses since his schedule has freed up.

The insider said: "Producers think Danny would be great on the series and is their number one target.

"They’re hoping he’ll be finished in time, they’d definitely be up for a big money offer." 

Bosses are also hoping the show will return to the Australian jungle for the next series. 

Ant and Dec talked about their hopes on The One Show.

Since the pandemic, the show has been filmed at Gwrych Castle, in Wales, due to Covid travel restrictions.    

When asked if the show would be returning there, Ant replied: "Well, the plan is the jungle."

Dec quickly said "Nothing against Wales!"

Ant continued: "We love Wales, but Australia is (the show's) home and we'd like to get back there if we can. With Covid there was no getting around it."

When announcing his departure, Danny said: I am leaving EastEnders. I'm very lucky, I'm very grateful.

"When you're in a job like a soap your contract comes up for renewal and every time it has they've asked me to stay, and I'm very grateful for that. Because I've seen a lot of people come and go. It's very tough.

"I always debate whether I want to sign again and I've been contemplating a while now about whether it's time to roll the dice, take the leap.

"The big news is I've decided not to renew my contract. That's all. That's not because I've fallen out with anybody, I love everybody. That job has been amazing for me. It's an important part of television.

"I'm grateful for the beautiful years I've had there. I'm going to miss the people massively. It's me taking a risk.

"I know some people will be jumping for joy at the idea of me leaving EastEnders, there will be others who are quite disappointed. Other people will wish me the best for the future.

"There's no big story around it, really. Other than the fact I've decided to go off and try some other stuff.

"I'm 44 now, and I've had nine years of playing Mick and I think he needs to be rested.

I'm still looking for that defining role. Maybe it is there, maybe it isn't.

"But I've always been quite ambitious, and I had quite a long career before I went into EastEnders.

"I know the landscape has changed slightly but I want to go out there and have another go, and the only way I can do that is if I decide to walk away from the job."
