EastEnders legend Dean Gaffney launched a scathing rant about Love Island in a recent interview – saying he never wants his daughters to appear on the show.
It comes at a time that his co-star, Danny Dyer, praised his own daughter for appearing on the ITV2 match-making show – and in Sunday’s episode, Dani Dyer, 22, even managed to bag herself a boyfriend in the form of Jack Fincham.
Dean told the Daily Star: “I think anyone that goes on a reality show to open their legs and have sex on telly hasn’t been brought up well in my opinion.
“It’s not right and I certainly don’t want to have my daughters on that.”
While Danny was more than happy for his daughter to appear on the show, it seems Dean had other ideas about his own 21-year-old girls.
He added: “They don’t want to do Love Island. They have their own careers. They’ve both done well and I am proud of them. They have been brought up well.”

Dean is the proud father of jaw-dropping twins, Chloe and Charlotte, who are both 21.
Dean is now dating Rebekah Ward, who is just three years older than his twins, at the age 24.
Meanwhile, Danny himself recently gushed over how proud he was of his own daughter, Dani, who is a fan favourite on the hit match-making programme.
Hard-man Danny is known for his ‘geezer’-like attitude – but couldn’t help but praise his daughter and reveal that he “proper misses” her in an emotional message.
He tweeted to his 1.26 million followers: “I know she’s doing well… holding her own and all that b******t… but it’s got to be declared… I proper miss my baby girl now. #firstborn #Dani #loveisland.”
And fans were obsessed with his loving response to her island appearance, with one writing: “Proud! Absence makes the heart grow fonder – you’ve got a diamond there Danny very level headed young lady x.”
“Jack is lovely though. She’s found a good one best get your speech ready for the wedding #loveisland,” another wrote, while a third added: “She’s doing u proud Danny! We all love her & rooting her to win. Her & Jack my absolute favourite only reason we’ve tuned in watch it Cos she’s on there.”
