Ever since the lovely Dani Dyer stole our hearts on this year's season of Love Island, we've been desperate for her to collaborate with her old dad on TV. Finally, the time has come. EastEnders favourite Danny Dyer and his daughter will be filming a celebrity special of Channel 4's Gogglebox together.

It's all in the name of C4's Stand Up To Cancer and, knowing Mr. Dyer, there's bound to be some profanities.

But Danny announced the news in an adorable Instagram post, calling daughter Dani his 'little soulmate' and encouraging us to come together to stand up to cancer.

He wrote, 'Me and my beautiful little soul mate @danidyerxx will be on goggle box this Friday night talking a bit of bollockyness in aid of stand up to cancer. We all need to come together and raise some serious reddies to try and combat this nasty evil thing that takes far 2 many lives. #standup2cancer #fridaynight #gogglebox.' [sic]

The father and daughter duo will appear without mum Jo Mas in the episode, and will voice their opinions on this week's telly alongside all the Gogglebox regulars, including fan-favourites the Siddiqui family.
