Insiders told The Sun that Dani ‘hates’ the fact her love life is being brought up at West Ham games, especially as her famous dad Danny Dyer is a huge supporter of the football club.

Score: Dani fuelled rumours she and West Ham star Jarrod (pictured last week) are now dating after he was pictured leaving her Essex home, earlier this month
Speculation Dani and Jarrod are dating comes three months after her conman ex Sammy Kimmence was sentenced to three years in jail in July.
The former couple are parents to son Santiago, who turns one in January.
The pair split shortly after Sammy was imprisoned for posing as an investor after scamming pensioners out of £34,000 by befriending and tricking them.
Not only did he con the two pensioners, he convinced Dani the crimes were not serious so the reality star would stand by him.
But the reality star stopped sharing anything from their relationship when the truth of his crimes came to light, and immediately broke things off with him when she found out.
So much so, that Dani decided against going to the courthouse to see Sammy’s sentencing at Portsmouth Crown Court where he was handed a 42-month sentence.
While inside, it was revealed Sammy had asked friends to ‘keep an eye’ on Dani and was left ‘unhappy’ with her actions – with insiders claiming Sammy is said to be enraged over her close friendship with sports star Jarrod.

After finding out Sami had instructed his pals to spy on, Dani said: ‘After all the awful things he did came out in court and we split up, I thought I could start to move on with my life with little Santi
‘But this is just really horrible and scary. I have been left feeling furious, afraid and violated.’
Dani and Sammy first dated prior to her appearance on Love Island in 2018. They later rekindled their relationship following her split from ex-boyfriend Jack Fincham in April 2019.
Sources, meanwhile, revealed to The Sun that Dani and Jarrod have grown much closer in recent weeks, after spending more time together.
They said: ‘It is a very new relationship, but it’s lovely to see Dani beginning to move on and leaving all the heartache she’s suffered behind her.’
