Insiders close to the family said the EastEnders hard-man and his wife, Jo, are now secretly pleased Dani has broken free from Jack.
The Sun exclusively revealed how Dani, 22, had given 27-year-old Jack the boot last night.
An insider said: “Dani and Jack were a lovely couple on the show but when they came out, obviously the pressure was on and it was a lot harder
“Dani is a hard worker and wanted to make sure she was professional and was giving every opportunity everything she had.

“Jack found it harder. Her dad Danny and her family warned her early on that they didn’t think sticking by Jack was the best idea.
“They thought she’d be stronger alone. Her dad tried to advise her as much as he could.”
They added: “Of course Jack is a lovely lad and they got on, but Dani’s family live in the public eye and they know how important it is to work hard and stay out of trouble.
“They had a few words with Dani but ultimately it was her choice and they’d never stand in the way.
“She genuinely loved him and hoped it was forever. But it got to a point where it was clearly over and there was no turning back. Dani’s family are overjoyed. Of course they like Jack but this is Dani’s time to shine.”
The Sun Online has contacted Danny and Dani’s representatives for comment.
Dani was keen for Jack to meet her family after they got out of the villa, and he was seen with her and dad Danny several times after the show ended.
However, Jack has not been pictured with the soap star or any other members of the Dyer clan for months.

The last time they were seen together was when Danny and his wife Jo Mas supported Dani at her In The Style launch party alongside Jack in October.
It came more than a month after Jack was last seen with the family when he joined Dani and Danny at the TV Choice Awards in September.
Dani shared plenty of pictures of family gatherings after that, but Jack did not appear in any of the snaps.

Since leaving the villa, Dani has gone on to launch a hugely successful collaboration with InTheStyle and has TV shows begging to sign her up.
After the split she released a statement and thanked her loyal fans for their support.
Dani wrote online: “Jack and I have sadly decided to part ways.
“It’s been an incredible six months and we will always have a place in our hearts for each other, but we’ve sadly come to the realisation that it’s not meant to be long term.
“We both plan to stay friends. I hope you’ll all understand. Love Dani x.”
