Love Island's Dani Dyer confirms filming has started on the new reality TV show following her family life and relationship with Jack Fincham.

Now that summer is officially over and the temperature outside has dropped about 4147314 degrees, Love Island 2018 feels like a distant memory. We've been looking for something to fill the Love Island void for quite some time now, and while the autumn telly is looking pretty fab, we miss hanging out with the likes of Dani Dyer, Jack Fincham et al in the swanky Love Island villa.

Luckily, Dani has now confirmed filming for her new reality TV show has already started, meaning we'll soon be able to catch up with the Love Island 2018 winners in the natural habitat.

Speaking about the new show - which will also feature her parents Joanne and Danny Dyer as well as her nan and granddad, Bruv - Dani told Capital Breakfast: '"Yeah, we’ve just sort of started. It’s exciting. It is hard work though, it’s sort of back to all that again ain’t it? I’m like ‘oh no Dan, here we go again."

Jack and Dani

Dani revealed she found it 'weird' adjusting to having cameras follow her every move again, but joked her nan was 'loving' the attention.

The 22-year-old also confirmed granddad Bruv's appearance, after he went down a storm when he appeared on Love Island this summer.

She added: "Yeah, Bruv! Yeah, he goes ‘oh no, no I don’t want to go out!’ – I can’t do a Spanish accent, that’s how he does it!'"

Dani's dad Danny recently voiced his concerns about the upcoming reality show while appearing on Good Morning Britain, explaining to Richard Arnold it could be "brilliant or it could be a car crash."

He said: "We're going to go and have some meetings about it and we're going to see how we feel about it."

When Jack consoled Dani

Dani felt so bad about choosing Samira and Alex as one of the least compatible couples in the villa.

Just me and Dani..." Could they BE any cuter?

Dani is taking it really slow in the villa, so much so that she wouldn't even snog Jack for the first week of coupling up with him. She'd kiss him on the lips, but no tongues allowed. It was such a sweet moment when the pair had their first proper smooch - Jack was over the moon!
