Dani Dyer has been offered a place on Love Island after her dreams of finding fame on Survival Of The Fittest were cut short.
Dani Dyer is ‘promised’ a spot on Love Island after injuring her shoulder forced her out of Survival Of The Fittest
The 22-year-old budding reality star - who was forced to leave the South Africa-based show after dislocating her shoulder during a challenge - has been "promised" a spot in this summer's line-up of ITV2's sister show, according the Daily Star.
And let’s be honest, Love Island sounds like the more appealing of the two shows – Survival of the Fittest combines dating with a series of challenges (like, actual exercise) in what was called by its creators as ‘the ultimate battle of the sexes.’
The winning team bag £40,000 at the end of the three weeks.
Love Island involves sitting around a pool in Mallorca and hooking up with another teammate to win £50,000. We know which one we’d choose…
A source told the newspaper: "Producers saw in the brief time they got to know Dani that she is surefire TV gold like her dad.
"She is funny, sharp and sexy, in many ways she is the perfect Love Islander.”
The daughter of EastEnders star Danny Dyer also hinted she may be given another shot by ITV2 bosses.
After revealing she was "absolutely gutted" to be departing so soon in her exit interview from the show, Dani added: "I hope this isn’t the last you’ve seen of me.”
Viewers saw Dani injure herself on a slide on Sunday night's episode before being rushed off to hospital.
Host Laura Whitmore revealed in tonight's show that she wouldn't be returning after producers decided she was not fit to continue, and would be replaced instead by Lottie James.
Her famous father admitted he was relieved she was coming home to Essex.
He wrote in an Instagram post: "Live and Let Live baby girl. Taken out by a boll***y slide.
"Don’t think my heart could have taken another 3 weeks of that caper. #proud.”
Fortunately for Dani, there will be less of a chance she will injure herself again if she enters the Love Island villa.
Survival Of The Fittest sees contestants do physical and mental challenges in a battle of the sexes while also finding romance.
Love Island, in contrast, focuses solely on dating, and constants spend virtually their entire time in the same luxury Spanish villa.
During her brief time in The Lodge, Dani earned the nickname the "new Marcel Somerville" from Twitter users after she repeatedly name-dropped her dad.
However, she has insisted that she "didn't want anyone to know" about her famous dad in order to feel equal amongst her fellow cast members.
In an interview before entering The Lodge she said: "I don’t want anyone to know."
Dani released a statement after leaving Survival of the Fittest, sayng: ‘For medical reasons, I can’t take part in any of the challenges because I am no use in a sling.
‘I will just be sitting around and not be able to compete and I’m not meant to move [my arm] for a week so it wouldn’t be fair and there is just no point.
I’ll just be an extra spare part if I carry on like this,’ she added.
‘I haven’t stopped training since Christmas.'
'I’ve been dieting.'
'I did Tough Mudder last year and I didn’t even hurt myself then.'
'I’ve been constantly training up until now and now I’ve gone and dislocated my shoulder.'
'It is what it is I suppose.'
‘My experience in the lead up to going into The Lodge was just amazing, I can’t put it into words how amazing it was so I am absolutely gutted that I can’t do any of the challenges. If I could go back and not dislocate my shoulder, I would definitely change it.’
‘I hope this isn’t the last you’ve seen of me.’
