Starring alongside her real-life father Danny Dyer, it looks like Dani’s character will be at the heart of some drama on the BBC soap.
Danny plays Mick Carter, and their scenes together will be shown next week.
Dani plays the part of Jeanette, a pregnant cab driver. She picks up Mick who is rushing to hospital for his wife Linda’s baby scan.
It’s a good job they’re heading there, as Jeanette goes into labour in front of Mick, much to his surprise.

He has to take the wheel when her waters break, and he rushes to get her to the hospital in time.

The pair will be on screen next week, with their episode set to air on Monday June 14.
The role should be a breeze for Dani, after she welcomed her first child in January this year.
She gave birth to a baby boy named Santiago, who she share with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence. Santiago turns five months old this month.
Fans can assume Dani’s real-life birth experience was a lot less dramatic!
Mick isn’t the daddy, as Linda became pregnant after a short-lived romance with Max Branning.
It wasn’t long before Linda realised Max was the father of her child and not Mick.
Will their marriage survive this bombshell or will it prove too much for them?
