Danny confidently replied, “I was about 14.” Left in shock, Keith continued, “Yeah, I’ve been with her since I was 13. 30 odd years of fucking pain. Just kidding. Of course I love her with all my heart.
‘It’s with the same lady I’m with now. We got together very young, which is why we had a child so young.
“We got there early, so we had a kid when we were 18,” he explained.
Opening: Danny answered confidently: ‘I was about 14 years old’. Leaving Keith in shock, he continued: ‘Yes, I’ve been with her since I was 13’
Later in the interview, the “hard man” said how he couldn’t remember “before he was older” for having his daughter Dani so early.
He and his oldest child host their wildly successful Sorted With The Dyers podcast together.
With his impending departure from EastEnders in sight, Danny said he would like to work more with the influencer.
The soap star who is the grandfather of Dani’s son Santiago also joked about the 19-month-old boy’s name, telling Keith it sounded like the name of a “small Colombian drug dealer” before quickly adding that the toddler was “a beautiful little thing’.
Shocking: It comes after he discussed the shocking moment when he told EastEnders bosses he ‘had to leave or die’ (pictured on the soap starring Scott Maslen as Jack Branning)
Danny’s appearance comes after he discussed the shocking moment when he told EastEnders bosses that he “had to leave or die” during his previous struggles with drugs.
The presenter who recently announced his departure as Mick Carter on the BBC series after nine years revealed the shocking reason he temporarily left the show in 2017.
Speaking on Jaime Winstone’s new podcast, Greatest Night Ever, Danny recalled the moment he “went ***ing mad” during his time on the soap, putting his marriage to wife Jo in jeopardy.

In quotes obtained by The Sun, he said: “I turned to the EastEnders bosses and I said, ‘Listen, I’ve got to go somewhere. I’m dying.’
Danny explained that he made the confession to the show bosses while “using a lot of drugs” and being a “c***” to his wife the entire time.
“Fame has never suited me. I always went the damn wrong way. So I lost the plot for many years and I was crazy,” he revealed.
The actor added: “I was doing a lot of fucking drugs. I was looking for something. There was a hole in me and I couldn’t figure out what it was.’
He admitted that he realized he would “bottom up his relationship” and become a “shadow” of himself if she continued.
“I knew I had to damn myself because I’d known until now what I was doing, what I was doing without her [Jo]some of the situations I would find myself in,” he continued.
Earlier this year, Danny admitted that he wanted to leave EastEnders “for a while” when he spoke out for the first time since announcing his departure from the soap.
