EASTENDERS star Danny Dyer has been hit with heartbreak as his beloved grandmother has died following a pneumonia battle.
The soap actor's mum Chrissie took to Twitter to confirm the sad news.
"I didn’t see my little mum for 10 days when she was in hospital and a wonderful doctor allowed me to give her a cuddle wearing full PPE," she tweeted.
"They let me take her home so she could die in her own house."
She added in a second tweet: "I will be eternally grateful to that wonderful doctor giving me that last cuddle and a chat. I miss her dreadfully."
The matriarch of the Dyer family was rushed to hospital with pneumonia back in June.
Her family were left heartbroken as they weren't allowed to visit her during the pandemic – despite her not having coronavirus.
Danny's mum at the time said: "My little mum is in hospital with pneumonia. Not Covid thank f***
"I'm taking up parcels and phoning her, but not being able to visit her is f****** devastating."
Her granddaughter, former Love Island winner Dani Dyer, 24, responded by saying: "Hope she's OK."
To which Chris replied: "So do I! Love you xxx
"I know she is in the best place to get better."
The Dyers are known to be a close family, which has seen Dani break lockdown to visit her famous dad and her mum Jo.
