Danny Dyer has admitted he had an affair with his wife Joanne Mas while they were split up.
The EastEnders hardman has come over all soft since watching his daughter Dani Dyer win Love Island with Jack Fincham. But he revealed that the course of true love never runs smooth – and it was his beloved daughter that reunited him with his missus during their first separation. The actor, 41, revealed during their split – when Dani was just three – he “began having an affair” with Joanne before getting back together for their daughter’s sake. “I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t a dad. I and Joanne had Dani when I was 18 and… f***ing hell, we were kids!” he told The Sunday Times Magazine .
Danny Dyer admitted it was their daughter that brought them back together. Danny and Dani have a close bond. They split when Dani was just three years old and started seeing other people. But it wasn’t long before Danny and Joanne were back together. “I don’t know if Joanne saw how much I missed ’em, but the visits started getting longer and we’d sit down with a cup of tea,” he said. “Next minute… we’re having an affair. I said: ‘F*** this! We’re sneaking around like schoolkids. We’ve got a beautiful girl. Let’s give it a go.'”
The proud parents have been together since 1992 and got married in September 2016. Last year Danny’s love life hit the headlines following reports of him being “unfaithful”. They reportedly split in 2017 after reports he had an affair with former Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding while they filmed 2013 film Run for Your Wife. But after months of rumours, the couple are now clearly back on. They have just returned from a trip to Orlando, Florida with their other children Sunnie, 11, and Arty, five.
