Dani Dyer gets animated during Nativity! The Musical rehearsals as she prepares to reprise her role in the hit family show for a second time

She's been in demand on the TV and radio since winning Love Island in 2018.

And Dani Dyer is set to round off her busy year by reprising her role in Nativity! The Musical alongside her father, EastEnders star Danny.

The reality star, 23, showed off her own acting prowess during rehearsals for the hit family show on Thursday, which is set to start touring the UK in less than two weeks.

Dani put on an animated display as she rehearsed her role of producer's daughter Polly Parker, a character she also played last year.

She was seen prancing around the rehearsal space appearing to hold ballet poses and balancing on a box next to a stack of brightly-coloured Christmas presents.

The TV star dressed casually for the occasion in a matching khaki green two-piece ensemble which featured a boxy t-shirt and tracksuit bottoms with a tie waist.

Dani scraped her light brown locks into a bun for the rehearsal and applied the lightest touch of makeup to complete her laid-back look.

In one scene Dani was spotted acting angry with two other members of the cast and seen holding up her black clipboard as they leaned backwards, away from her.

And in other shots the Love Island winner sat behind a desk which had Hollywood written across the front while looking perplexed.

Dani also starred as Polly in last year's production of the hit show and will once again take to the stage with her famous father Danny Dyer. 

Sharon Osbourne will also star as Crystal Collins, the President of Parker Pictures and Rylan Clark-Neal appears as the critic.

Simon Lipkin will reprise his role as Mr Poppy, which he also played in the feel-good films.

The Nativity! The Musical and films story sees the children at St Bernadette’s School trying their best to make the Christmas show the best it can be.

The pressure is especially high as their teacher Mr Maddens has promised that a Hollywood producer is coming to see the show to turn it into a film. 

He and teaching assistant Mr Poppy then hilariously struggle to make everyone’s Christmas wish come true. 

Star: Dani will go on tour to Wolverhampton, Cardiff, Plymouth and Southampton for the show

This year the musical will travel around the UK, with Dani appearing in shows in Wolverhampton, Cardiff, Plymouth, Southampton and London.

Dani shot to fame during Love Island 2018, when her on-screen relationship with ex-boyfriend Jack Fincham won the nation's hearts as the pair took home the crown. 

Yet she and Jack split just months after they left the villa and she's now with Sammy Kimmence, a 23-year-old stockbroker who also grew up in Essex.  

In July Dani revealed that she sought the help of a psychiatrist after struggling to cope with the fame and attention Love Island brought her in a candid interview.

Speaking to Stella magazine, the reality star opened up about the aftermath of living in the famous villa, with the months following also seeing the breakdown of her relationship with Jack.

She admitted to the publication: 'It can be very tough.' I spoke to a psychologist from the show before I went on and afterwards. I had several calls from the producers checking if I was OK,' she said. 

'And a few weeks after the show, when I felt overwhelmed and said I needed to speak to someone, they put me in touch with a psychiatrist.'
