Dani Dyer has revealed all on her upcoming EastEnders cameo, and how she used her real-life pregnancy for inspiration when filming some dramatic scenes.

The Love Island star filmed alongside her real-life dad Danny Dyer for the scenes, with him playing Mick Carter on the BBC soap.

Dani plays pregnant cab driver Jeanette, who goes into labour while driving Mick to the hospital for wife Linda's baby scan.

But things turn chaotic when her waters suddenly break, and Mick is forced to take the wheel to get her there in time.

Now, Dani has discussed the cameo and how she recalled her own pregnancy for the scenes.

Dani welcomed her baby son Santiago in January with partner Sammy Kimmence, and the actress confessed she used her pregnancy as inspiration for the episode that will air on Monday June 14.

"But they made me feel so relaxed and I absolutely loved the director he was brilliant and really gave me some good advice."

She added: "Yes we have acted together before but this was definitely a lot more than what we’ve done in the past and it was brilliant.
