DANNY DYER

Favourite Soap Star

TV Times - - Tv Times Awards 2018 -

Prov­ing that daugh­ter Dani isn’t the only win­ner in the Dyer fam­ily (she won the 2018 se­ries of Love Is­land with beau Jack Fin­cham), Easten­ders’

Danny Dyer picked up the tro­phy for Favourite Soap Star. And the ac­tor, who plays pub land­lord Mick Carter, couldn’t be more thrilled…

‘I’m a bit choked up,’ he says. ‘It’s a bit of a sur­prise, but a lovely,

early Christ­mas present. I’ll put it in my dress­ing room, so I can look at it ev­ery day and be proud.’

It’s been an­other big year for Mick, who’s cur­rently be­hind bars, wrongly ac­cused of shoot­ing his ex-pal Stu­art High­way. ‘It’s al­ways a high­light play­ing Mick and I’ve been blessed with such a beau­ti­ful soap char­ac­ter,’ says Danny.

Away from Wal­ford, who has Danny en­joyed watch­ing on TV? ‘Jodie Whit­taker from Doctor

Who,’ he says. ‘What a woman; an in­cred­i­ble ac­tress! I’d love to see her cross over to Easten­ders.’

With Christ­mas fever well and truly upon us, Danny is now pre­par­ing to swap Al­bert Square for the stage, as he and Dani are star­ring in Na­tiv­ity! The Mu­si­cal at Lon­don’s Ham­mer­smith Apollo.

‘I’m very ex­cited about work­ing with my baby,’ he tells us. ‘It’s been some­thing that we have al­ways dreamt of. And on Christ­mas Day, all the fam­ily will be com­ing over, so it will be nice to have a day off and re­lax.’
