She was forced to withdraw from new show Survival of the Fittest after sustaining a shoulder injury, just hours before its official launch.
But Dani Mas Dyer, whose participation in the South Africa based reality show is over, is reportedly viewed as the perfect fit for the forthcoming fourth series of Love Island when it launches this summer.
A source told the Daily Star: ‘Producers saw in the brief time they got to know Dani that she is surefire TV gold like her dad.
Villa bound? Dani Mas Dyer, whose participation in South Africa based reality show Survival Of The Fittest is over, is reportedly viewed as the perfect fit for the forthcoming fourth series of Love Island when it launches in the summer
‘She is funny, sharp and sexy, in many ways she is the perfect Love Islander.’
The 21-year old daughter of EastEnders star Danny Dyer flew to South Africa last week ahead of an appearance on the ITV2 show, widely expected to fill the gap left by the enormously popular third series of Love Island.
But a shoulder injury picked up while taking part in a pre-recorded physical challenge resulted in Dani being withdrawn on medical grounds and consequently departing the show's purpose built lodge, where all 12 contestants will be staying.

An ITV source told MailOnline: ‘Dani injured her shoulder during the recording of a challenge. She was attended to by on site medics and taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.
'As Survival of the Fittest involves physical challenges which she wouldn't be able to take part in, Dani isn't in a position to be able to return to The Lodge and will therefore leave the show.'
Speaking after her withdrawal, Dani admitted she was forced to wear a sling, meaning she will not be able to take part in any of the show's grueling physical challenges.

'I will just be sitting around and not be able to compete and I'm not meant to move [my arm] for a week so it wouldn't be fair and there is just no point,' she said. 'I'll just be an extra spare part if I carry on like this.'
The brunette revealed she was gutted to be going home after spending hours in the gym ahead of her trip to the South African Savannah.
'I haven't stopped training since Christmas,' she said. 'I've been dieting. I did Tough Mudder last year and I didn't even hurt myself then. I've been constantly training up until now and now I've gone and dislocated my shoulder. It is what it is I suppose.

'My experience in the lead up to going into The Lodge was just amazing, I can't put it into words how amazing it was so I am absolutely gutted that I can't do any of the challenges.
'If I could go back and not dislocate my shoulder, I would definitely change it. I hope this isn't the last you've seen of me.'
