WHAT HAPPENED? The famous Hammers supporter, who once starred in the 'Football Factory', claims to be able to see the funny side of a terrace song in which his own daughter figures prominently. Dani Dyer is currently dating England international Bowen – with the pair recently welcoming newborn twins into the world – and he netted a dramatic winner for West Ham as they edged out Fiorentina 2-1 to get their hands on a major European title in 2022-23.

WHAT THEY SAID: Danny Dyer has told DR Sports of a favoured chant among his fellow Hammers fans being a “compliment” to his daughter Dani: “I think there's a bit of romance in it. Think about it, it's a compliment. They are saying Bowen is on fire, which is unreal and he's also sha***** Dani Dyer. So if you think about it, they're saying it can't get any better, so there's a compliment in there. Listen sometimes I'll start the song off over West Ham I'm not even going to lie.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Bowen has helped to land West Ham their first piece of silverware since 1980, as he struck in the final minute of a meeting with Fiorentina in Prague, and Dyer has joked that he now has stronger feelings for the 26-year-old winger than he does his wife. The EastEnders actor told talkSPORT: “I just didn't think I could love a man any more. It's always a weird thing because it's your daughter, they fall in love with people you don't usually like, but she brought home Jarrod Bowen. I think I love Jarrod more than anyone, more than me own wife! I'm a bit jealous of my daughter…”
