Dani Dyer brands Jack Fincham 'a holiday romance' and declares beau Sammy Kimmence is her 'best friend' as she is awkwardly grilled about her Love Island ex

She’s been happily loved-up with beau Sammy Kimmence since rekindling their romance in May.

The Love Island star, 23, admitted that her relationship with the former pen salesman was simply a ‘holiday romance’, while Sammy is her ‘best friend’.

During Love Island 2018, Dani's 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 23-year-old stockbroker and amateur footballer Sammy who grew up in Essex with Dani.

But despite her being loved-up with Sammy, panellist Jane Moore was more interested in her summer fling with Jack.

She said: ‘I have to ask because this is the first time you've been on with us.

Smarten up like Dani wearing a Very X Kate Wright blazer

Blazers are the tried and tested trend that always keeps coming back for more and has become a key piece to those wanting to power dress their way from AM to PM.

Dani Dyer was showing us how it’s done on Loose Women recently by donning this Very X Kate Wright number with red sandals to complete the look with a pop of colour.

Of course, we love the fitted double-breasted silhouette and belted finish, but it’s the geometric print that really catches the eye.

Laughing off her comments, Dani admitted that they were in a ‘a bubble’ on the ITV2 show, with things not being as rosy once they left the villa.

She explained: ‘I just think it doesn't work sometimes. It's like any relationship, sometimes it does sometimes it doesn't.’

When questioned whether she and Jack had pressure on them to make their love work after winning Love Island, Dani confirmed: ‘Yeah.

While her dad has an infamous tough guy reputation, Dani insisted it's her mother Joanne who boyfriends have to impress.  

'My mum is the harder one. My dad, he wants them to be friends. My dad is not that scary,' she laughed. 

'He is protective, he is. I have such a good relationship with him,' she added of Danny. 'They had me at such a young age that they’re more like my friends as well than just my mum and dad.'

Dani and Danny are working together on MTV show True Love or True Lies. Danny returns as the show's voice-over artist while Dani will make her TV presenting debut on the new series.

The reality show sees eight couples enter an idyllic mansion in Malta, all competing to prove their love is real and win a large cash prize, but there's a twist. Some of them are fake couples trying to steal the cash for themselves.

Every night the couples turn on each other at the Love Ceremony, where they reveal to Dani, and the other couples, whose love they think is a lie. The couple with the most votes leaves the Mansion – but not before revealing if they are Lovers, or if they are Liars. If they are liars, the prize fund increases by £10,000.

True Love or True Lies premieres October 21 at 9pm on MTV and continues every week night until November 5.
