Danny Dyer: 'I'm a spiritual man'

Share article:

Danny Dyer says he is a "spiritual man".

The "EastEnders" actor has opened up about his relationship with his wife Jo Mas - whom he started dating in 1992 and later married in 2016 - and admitted despite going through difficult periods in their romance, he has learned to work hard to make sure his anxiety doesn't take over.

He told Closer magazine: "I'm a spiritual man, so whenever you say something you need to ask yourself - is it truthful, is it kind and is it necessary?

"If it passes through those three gates - then say it. Anxiety is hard, and what your brain does to you. You've got to take control of it."

The 41-year-old soap star - whose shares daughters Dani, 23, and Sunnie, 12, and five-year-old son Arty with Jo - admitted he always wanted to shield his children from the difficulties of life in the spotlight.

He explained: "Fame is quite an intoxicating thing. It's alright at first but then it does drive you insane. I tried to keep my children away from it as much as possible."

While his eldest daughter has become a star in her own right after appearing on "Love Island", Danny admitted he and Jo are now having to help her through her breakup from Jack Fincham.

He added: "It's difficult being a parent because no one's going to be good enough for them - ever.

"I worship the ground my children walk on, but of course they've got to find their way. You can't pick boys for your daughters - it doesn't work like that.

"Jo and I had a child very young and you learn every single day how to be a good parent, but it actually turned out we didn't do a bad job."
