DANNY Dyer and Jack Fincham have been seen together for the first time – collecting an Indian takeaway for Dani’s 22nd birthday.
The pair looked completely at ease as they headed to EastEnders hard-man Danny’s local favourite, The Coriander, to pick up their grub with Dani sitting in the back of the car.
Danny had previously given 26-year-old Jack his seal of approval after watching him fall in love with Dani during their time in the villa.
He missed the chance to meet him in the villa after jetting off on holiday to Florida with Dani’s mum Jo and her siblings, Sunnie and Arty.
But now they’re back in the UK and Jack has been welcomed with open arms into the Dyer fold.
He rode shotgun with Danny as they drove from their home to grab the Indian feast.
Jack couldn’t stop smiling as he sat next to Danny, chatting amicably as they drove along.
He previously admitted he was a massive fan of the actor, so will have no doubt been pinching himself later in the evening after they tucked into the grub.
Outside the takeaway, protective Danny made sure he went inside and picked up the bill before passing the bags laden with food for Jack to hold.
Dani looked on proudly as she sat in the back watching her dad and boyfriend starting to bond.
When they first spoke over video link from the villa, Danny, 41, said he did have reservations about Jack when he first saw him.
However in the days running up to the show’s final, Danny said Jack had won him over and was proud of how he’d behaved with Danny – after warning her off romping in the villa.
Danny told Jack: “Listen I approve of you mate. I think you're absolutely bang on.
“I weren't at first, I thought 'here we go,’ but you’ve got so much charisma.”
Looking at his wife Jo, Danny added: “Honestly mate, we’re so over the moon.”
During their time in the villa, Jack and Dani’s co-stars wound him up about his first meeting with Danny.
It got worse when they discovered he had a poster of the actor on his wall, as Danny’s film The Business is one of Jack’s all-time favourites.
Jack admitted he felt nervous about meeting him and winning him over but Dani insisted her dad was “a big softie”.
The family bash was low key and Jack was introduced to Dani’s younger siblings.
He shared sweet pictures on Instagram of him smiling for a selfie with Arty before cuddling up to Sunnie and Dani.
