Ricky Bibby, Danny's dad, only has three posts and they are all throwback pictures from when Danny was a child. The account has only 479 followers and has been made private after Love Island fans discovered it.
Before the account became private, a savvy Twitter user took a screenshot of the Instagram bio which is still visible. It reads: "Danny's dad. If you know where he is then I will give loads of embarrassing things about him on here. The boy is a b*llend but I love him to bits.
Twitter user @HannaClarke posted the screenshot and said: "Danny’s dad Instagram is the best thing I’ve read 'the boy is a b*llnd'"
It looks like Danny's dad might have a few fans of his own!
Ricky dad came to his son's defense on Friday after screenshots showing Danny using a racial slur went viral on social media.
On a photo posted in 2019, the heavily tattooed plumber from Wigan received a comment from a friend on a selfie, saying "Champ."
A reply from Danny's account from at the time read: "My n****", which led to many people demanding his immediate removal from the villa.
"Danny does not have a racist bone in his body and there were no racist intentions to this post," Ricky said. "Although it was not done maliciously, it was a mistake. I absolutely apologise on his behalf for the offence this wording may have caused. That would never have been his intention."
Love Island is on weeknights at 9pm on ITV 2 and ITV Hub. The episodes are available to stream on BritBox the following morning.
