She said: ‘He thinks he’s funny, he’s like ”I can’t believe I’m going to be a grandad. I’m glad I haven’t got to do the night feeds.” But he’s like, ”You just learn it on the job.”

‘I don’t feel like you know what you’re doing until you’re actually doing it. He is really excited for me. He’s like, ”Listen Dan, as long as they’re fed and you give them loads of love, you’ll be fine.”

Dani’s parents Danny and Joanne Mas had her when they were both aged 18 and the star said she has a close relationship with them because of that.

She said: ‘I feel because my mum and dad had me so young, we do have such a good relationship. It’s just so nice how close we are. He really is like my friend. There’s no filter with me and him. I can tell him anything.’

Dani added that her mother, Joanne, 43, even wants to move in with her so she can be around when the baby arrives.

She said: ‘We were meant to convert the spare room into my own dressing room and she’s like, ”No, we’re going to keep the bed in there. I’ll have a picture up there, my sign up there,” so yeah, she’s moving in.’  

Talking about her pregnancy so far, Dani admitted that she has been suffering with anxiety and has struggled going to baby scans without partner Sammy due to the coronavirus crisis. 

She said: ‘I feel like there’s always something new. I’ve always been like that anyway, I always make a problem out of nothing. At the beginning I had constant headaches and migraines and I couldn’t get out of bed.

‘I thought something was wrong and then there’s always something else. But I’m just dealing with it now. I have my good days and bad, but I’m always tired.’

Talking about going to baby scans alone and being pregnant during the pandemic, she added: ‘Because this is the first time I’ve been pregnant, I’ve had nothing to compare it to… it is difficult. 

‘I’ve been to a few scans and Sammy wasn’t allowed to be there. He’s the father of my child, I need him in this room with me. You do end up having to book private scans. I just needed him there. 

‘I’m such a worrier anyway, so it was just nice having him hold my hand. But it is a scary time.’ 

Talking about her father's advice, she added: 'I don't feel like you know what you're doing until you're actually doing it. He is really excited for me. He's like, ''Listen Dan, as long as they're fed and you give them loads of love, you'll be fine.''

She said: ‘Whatever the baby wants to do, it can do in life. I would never want to push it to do reality TV because it is really difficult, even sometimes now I’m like, ”Dan, was that a good idea? Was it?”

Dani was on Lorraine to talk about her new podcast with dad Danny, which is called Sorted With The Dyers and acts as an agony aunt show for fans, she said: ‘I can’t even listen to that man. 

‘When I’m sitting there doing the podcast, I’m like, ”How do you get away with what you’re saying?”
