The former 'Love Island' star successfully auditioned for the medical serial drama and was due to appear on the programme this year until Covid-19 intervened, and the TV personality - who is expecting her first child - would love to act again in the future, but doesn't want to be in any more reality shows.

She said: "I would love to get into that [acting] again.

"I always wanted to go into 'Holby' ... I got the audition for 'Holby' and I was going to go on that, and then lockdown happened.

"So it would've been ... I do want to get into something like that, and enjoy that.

"I don't want to go on reality shows, I don't want to do that.

"They don't excite me. It doesn't make my heart skip a beat.

"Reality stars do incredible, but do I want to go down the route where I film my whole life?"

Dani admitted it would be "beautiful" if she could star alongside her father, 'EastEnders' actor Danny Dyer, in a new project, but her "heart's not in" reality shows any more.

Speaking on her and Danny's 'Sorted with the Dyers' podcast, Dani said: "I think I've still got the pathway to go down an acting route if I wanted to, but if I start going on this show, that show and all that crap it will not do me any favours.

"I'm in a good position right now - I'm having a baby.

"I am so lucky, I know I am."
