SHE took TV viewers along on her search for a man in Love Island’s villa. Now Dani Dyer will talk to the cameras about being a young mother.
But there will be more to the reality TV star’s new Channel 4 show than just diapers and dummies.
Dani bravely will share how the loneliness and pressures of being a mother to Santiago in January 2021 made her anxious.
Currently pregnant with twins, the 26-year-old social media influencer will also share how she has struggled with the pressure of being seen as a “good mum”.
Speaking about the 60-minute episode, Dani says: “Anxiety is a topic that everyone’s heard about, but we still don’t openly talk about our experiences. Although it can affect anyone, anxiety can be very overwhelming for young mothers.
“I’m really excited to be working with E4 and Summer Films to explore this topic, remove the stigma associated with mental health and meet other mums who have struggled with the pressures of what a supposed ‘good mum’ looks like.”
Dani Dyer, the daughter of Danny Dyer, is a social media user who asked if there were any others struggling with the pressures.
The film Dani Dyer: What Anxiety? will explore their conversations in detail when it airs in the next weeks.
It’s the latest in a run of mental health pieces from E4, with Sam Thompson soon fronting a piece on ADHD.
After Jack Fincham won Love Island 2018 with Dani, they split six month later. Dani then began dating Sammy Kimmence.
They had Santiago together but broke up when he was jailed for three and a half years for scamming two elderly men out of £34,000.
Dani has been dating West Ham winger Jarrod bowen since January. She announced that the couple were expecting twins.
I’m hoping she has a good experience with the newborns.

They have five children between them.
