‘When Santi is in bed that is my time to just my own things and chill out. It doesn’t mean you don’t want to spend time with someone, it just means you enjoy spending time with yourself.’ 

EastEnders actor Danny said: ‘You’ve had to, really. You were put in a predicament, it wasn’t the plan for you. You’re a single parent.’

Dani admitted: ‘There was a moment where I thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m on my own with a baby, how am I going to survive? How am I going to cope?’

‘You know how distraught I was. I was so emotional. I’ve never really spoken about it, but I was in a bad place.’

The Love Island winner continued: ‘So, for me now to enjoy my own company and watch that bit of telly and not think someone is going to come in and murder me [because of the Netflix shows she watches]. It’s been a journey for me.

‘So people shouldn’t feel bad for wanting their own space. If you don’t want your own company then someone else isn’t going to want your company.’

Each beaming from ear-to-ear, Dani flashed her bronzed legs in a black mini dress featuring white polka dots as she sipped from a glass of champagne.

Her caramel locks cascaded over her shoulder in glossy waves while her man kept things casual in a black bomber jacket and a white T-shirt. 

The reality star revealed towards the end of last year that her new man has the approval of her EastEnders actor dad, Danny, who thinks he is a ‘lovely guy’.  

She said: ‘He’s invested in all of the West Ham players – because he supports the team and follows some of them.’

Dani told The Sun: ‘He’s like: “They’re all my friends.” I’m like: “Right, OK, Dad.”‘  

‘Everything is so early days. Jarrod is a lovely guy and we’re enjoying getting to know each other.

Dani maintained her 10-month-old baby Santiago will ‘always be her main priority’, and she’s currently focusing on ‘being a mum’.
