The Love Island winners were inundated with work offers after the show and while Dani embraced every opportunity, Jack is said to have struggled which sparked concerns for Eastenders actor Danny.

“Jack found it harder. [Dani's] dad Danny and her family warned her early on that they didn't think sticking by Jack was the best idea,” a source told The Sun.

They added: “Of course Jack is a lovely lad and they got on, but Dani's family live in the public eye and they know how important it is to work hard and stay out of trouble.
