Love Island star Dani Dyer has detailed the strange nightmares she has experienced during her pregnancy.

The reality TV star, 24, is expecting her first child with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.

She has struggled with sleeping since winning Love Island in 2018 with ex-boyfriend Jack Fincham, but after falling pregnant things have got worse.

On the latest episode of her podcast Sorted With The Dyers, Dani tells her actor dad Danny Dyer the dreams have been ‘vivid’ and ‘really frightening’.

One nightmare scared her so much it left her ‘shaking’ and she had to wake up Sammy to help calm her down.

Dani said: ‘Since Love Island my sleep has never been great. I don’t know if that’s because I started getting anxiety after Love Island because I used to be able to fall asleep when I wanted to. If I wanted to have a 20 minute nap I could, but since Love Island I’ve had spurts of insomnia. You know I have.

‘The sleeping thing is a bit of a struggle as well now, being pregnant. The dreams I’ve been having, Dad, they’ve been really frightening. Really frightening.’

Describing one disturbing scene that stuck in her memory, she went on: ‘I had a dream with this woman – there’s always a black cat in our garden which freaks me out anyway, they’re bad luck. The last dream I had there was this woman and she was standing in my kitchen, she was dressed all in black with a suitcase, but her and the cat were just staring at me.

‘I was standing in the kitchen and I could not move. It was like I was there. I could not wake myself up. When I actually woke up, I was shaking. I had to wake Sammy up. I don’t know what Sammy’s gonna do!’

The mum-to-be also recalled another nightmare where she gave birth to a 10lb baby with ‘lots of hair’.

‘The doctor went, “Yeah you’ve had a right big one there” and I went, “Well what is it then?” and he wouldn’t tell me the gender. Really weird,’ Dani said.

Danny told her: ‘It’s gotta be your hormones and everything, with a human being growing inside you.’

The EastEnders actor detailed his own experiences with night terrors as a child.

He said: ‘When I used to get ill and I had a temperature I used to go to some f**king mad places.

‘My mum found me with my head in the washing bin. I was sleepwalking.

‘The dream I would have, I was hanging upside down in my mum and dad’s bedroom and they couldn’t see me, above their bed like a bat. I was a weird kid.’
