Actor Danny Dyer has crushed fans hopes of him entering the Love Island villa after being spotted in America.
The EastEnders hardman sparked a frenzy when he was spotted at an airport over the weekend, with many believing that he was headed for Majorca to appear on the Meet the Parents episode of the popular show.
Dyer’s daughter Dani has been on the show since it began back in June and, along with boyfriend Jack Fincham, is hot favourite for victory next week.
Traditionally, one episode during the last week of the programme sees parents of the contestants head into the villa to reunite with their loved ones and meet their new partners and pals.
However, a fan account for the show devastated fans when they shared a picture of Dyer posing with a fan at Disney’s Hollywood Studios over in Orlando, Florida – very much not Majorca.
Writing on social media, one fan said: “So I’ve woken up this morning to the news that Danny dyer is actually in America and not Majorca. Gutted beyond belief #loveisland.”
While another wrote: “So Danny Dyer is in Florida and not Majorca well that’s upsetting #loveisland”

“Danny Dyer is at Disney Hollywood Studios in Florida so he can’t be going into #LoveIsland for meet the parents :(((((,” commented somebody else.
Other Twitter users also posted pictures of Dyer – who turns 41 today – out and about in the famous theme parks in America.
However, some fans of the show are still holding onto hope of a Dyer cameo after pointing out that it is possible to fly from America to Spain – and video links exist.
Meanwhile, it’s probably best Dyer didn’t see the latest episode of Love Island after Dani and Jack were thrown into turmoil by the results of a lie detector test.
While the polygraph revealed Jack does love Dani, the machine determined he was lying when he said he couldn’t be tempted by other girls on the outside.
The test also said Jack was lying when asked if he only coupled up with Dani because of her famous father.
Is that poster above his bed the closest Jack is going to get to Dyer after all?
