Love Island's Dani Dyer gushes over boyfriend amid 'longest time apart' due to football

Dani Dyer gushed over her boyfriend Jarrod Bowen in a recent post on social media amid the couple spending the "longest" time apart in the relationship due to his career.

The reality TV star and the footballer, both 25, have been apart recently as he competes in the UEFA Nations League abroad alongside the rest of the England national team.

He made his debut in the squad on Saturday (June 4), with the Love Island winner supporting him from home as the team took on Hungary at the Puskás Aréna in Budapest.

And during a Q&A with fans on Instagram this afternoon, she further opened up about the relationship, telling her followers that it's the longest that they've been apart.

Asked if she was missing Jarrod, she responded on the platform: "I miss him so much. This is the longest we have been apart but I'm so proud of him so it makes it easier".

Whilst he was competing in Hungary over the weekend, Dani had spent time with her son Santiago, one, - who is from a previous relationship - at a Platinum Jubilee garden party.

She expressed support from afar though, sharing a photo of Jarrod in his official kit and writing: "Oh I love you." Dani included an emotional-looking emoji and a red heart.

Jarrod - who plays as a winger and forward for West Ham United - was announced as being part of the England national squad last month, ahead of the Nations League.

Dani said following the squad news that she was "beyond proud" of him. She added: "You deserve this so much. Love you more every single day. Bring it on @england."

Jarrod had suggested that it fulfilled a dream, writing on social media at the time: "A boy with a dream. An absolute honour to get called up to the national team. Can't wait!"

The match on Saturday had seen Jarrod and teammate James Justin, 24, make their debuts for the England squad - alongside returning players like captain Harry Kane, 28.

It was the England squad 's first game of the latest Nations League, with them sadly losing to Hungary. The match in the country's capital resulted in the native winning 1-0.
