Danny Dyer admitted he sings along to the chant that refers to West Ham United star Jarrod Bowen and his daughter Dani.

EastEnders star Danny Dyer has admitted that he enjoys the West Ham United chant about forward Jarrod Bowen which makes a reference to his daughter.

The actor is a lifelong Hammers fan and is the father to former Love Island star Dani Dyer, who is currently in a relationship with Bowen. The couple announced last month that they are expecting twins together, 13 months after confirming they were in a relationship.

Danny appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show on Saturday evening to promote his new Netflix quiz show Cheat, but before Dyer and Ross could get onto the programme they began chatting about his daughter's relationship.

Danny is already a grandfather after Dani gave birth to a son with ex-beau Samy Kimmence in January 2021. Kimmence and Dyer reportedly split shortly afterwards when he was jailed for 42 months after scamming two elderly men out of £34,000.

Speaking of his grandson, Danny said: "Santiago, he does sound like a Colombian drug dealer but we call him Santi. He's beautiful, such a lovely little boy. She's pregnant again with twins, identical girls. I'm going to have three grandkids under three by May.

"You have daughters and have twats walk through your door. You've got to let them be who they are going to be, you can't tell them who to fall in love with. All of a sudden, she's brought home a West Ham player, I couldn't have hand-picked a better human being, he's beautiful. He comes around and I get all starstruck."

After heaping praise on Bowen, who is the Hammers' top scorer so far this season, Ross then asked Dyer about the famous chant concerning his daughter.

A chuckling Dyer replied: "There is a chant, which I think is quite sweet... there's romance to it. When he scores, and he does score a lot, it goes like this, 'Bowen's on fire and he's sha***** Dani Dyer'. I've been over there singing it, jumping around. Is that wrong? I think Dani was a little bit freaked out by it but I said there was something quite sweet about it."
