The actor is currently taking a break from his role as Mick Carter.
‘Eastenders’ bosses have denied reports that Danny Dyer has been annoying his fellow cast mates with his ‘Lord of the Manor’ behaviour on set.
On Friday the BBC soap confirmed that Dyer had been granted leave from the show and he’s currently said to be on holiday in South Africa. Claims that he’s being written out of storylines or that he’ll be quitting the soap have also been denied.
Danny Dyer is currently on a break from ‘Eastenders’
Producers on the BBC1 soap have become concerned that Dyer has increasingly appeared "exhausted", after apparently being drunk at the National Television Awards.
Danny Dyer has reportedly been forced to take a break for a “number of weeks” from the set of ‘Eastenders’, after producers told him he needed to “sort his life out” following a reputed string of drunken benders.
Sources told The Sun on Thursday (February 16th) that the 39 year old actor, who plays The Queen Vic’s landlord Mick Carter, had sparked concern among the BBC soap’s producers when he fell off the wagon at last month’s National Television Awards, in his battle to quit drinking.

The ‘EastEnders’ star’s royal ancestry was uncovered during an episode of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’.
TV hardman Danny Dyer has found out he is a descendant of both William the Conqueror and Edward III, two prominent Kings of England.
The actor’s royal blood was discovered when he filmed an episode of BBC series 'Who Do You Think You Are?’.
But it was when he found out his family connection to another historical figure, controversial politician Thomas Cromwell, that the ‘EastEnders’’ actor became emotional.
The former ‘Top Gear’ host was just looking for a quiet weekend in Hampshire when he found himself in the middle of the wedding party.
Of all the hotels Jeremy Clarkson could have checked in to for a quiet weekend in Hampshire, he picked the one where Danny Dyer was hosting his wedding bash. The presenter accidentally found himself in the middle of Dyer’s all-night wedding party over the weekend, at the five-star Chewton Glen hotel in Hampshire.

According to The Sun, Jeremy was just looking to relax during a break from his hectic filming schedule for ‘The Grand Tour’ and was stunned to find himself in the middle of Dyer’s wedding to longtime girlfriend Jo Mas.
The 'EastEnders' star's family history is unearthed in the BBC's genealogy programme this autumn - and he could be related to the Queen herself!
He may be famous for playing rough-round-the-edges, happy-go-lucky Cockney geezers for the last 15 years, but it turns out Danny Dyer may come from slightly more blue-blooded stock after all, as the upcoming series of BBC genealogy programme ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ claims he is related to royalty.
The 38 year old English actor, now in a long-term role as pub landlord Mick Carter in ‘EastEnders’, put himself forward for the latest series of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ in order to discover his ancestry, and was reportedly shocked to discover that he could a distant relative of Queen Elizabeth II.

Billy Connolly lands Special Recognition Award
The 2016 awards show actually celebrates fifty years of Connolly's comedy career, and he was branded 'unique' as he was asked to accept his award by Dustin Hoffman. 'I'm delighted to be here to pay tribute to a man whose work I've always admired and whose company I always enjoy', he said. He follows last year's winner David Tennant.
He was asked whether his 'EastEnders' storyline wedding had made him think about his own upcoming marriage. Cue hilarity...
Cockney cheeky chap Danny Dyer was on great form during a daytime TV appearance today, as he left viewers in stitches with his hilarious responses to Susanna Reid’s questions during an interview on ‘Good Morning Britain’.
Trying to prise some details out of Dyer about his upcoming wedding to his long-term partner Joanne Mas, the presenter asked him whether his current ‘Eastenders’ storyline, in which his character Mick Carter is getting married to Linda (Kellie Bright), had got him thinking about his own impending marriage.

Plenty of options this weekend, but what are you going to plump for?
Friday is here, and with it comes a set of movies that truly cover all bases. You’ve got a romantic, French art-house option, a star-studded action-fest, a gritty Brit-flick, a historical, all-American true-story and a bona-fide Hollywood blockbuster. But what are you going to see?

Had Danny Dyer's career reached an all-time low?
Danny Dyer, the actor once branded one of the most promising young actors in Britain after his excellent turn in Human Traffic, has joined the cast of Hollyoaks, Later. The new series of the raunchier version of Hollyoaks will star stalwart Nick Pickard battling cancer and Dyer playing a ruthless ex-pat known only as 'The White Man.'

Dyer - who has bizarrely been typecast as a hard man - will cause serious problems from the Hollyoaks cast with "with high-stakes poker, Russian roulette and kidnapping all on the cards," according to MTV. Jane Steventon, producer of Hollyoaks Later, said: "I'm thrilled that we have brought together such an amazing cast for this year's Later and with the addition of Danny Dyer, the adventures can really kick off." The new series will see Nick organizing a get-together with old pals Kurt Benson, Finn and brother Dom in a bid to face his demons, however, a dodgy deal from village hard man Trevor Royle sees the gang fall foul of Dyer's shadowy character. The new series of the Hollyoaks Later will air on E4 in the autumn.
Danny Dyer's Latest Movie 'Run For Your Wife' Has Taken Just £605 At The Box Office
Poor old Danny Dyer. Actually, let's not pity him - he was one the one who signed up for Run For Your Wife, a comedy also starring Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding and presenter Denise Van Outen. The movie scored a collective 0% rating on the reviews aggregating website Rotten Tomatoes, with Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian damningly writing "The trouser-dropping 80s stage farce finally hits the big screen with Danny Dyer, to kill off any remaining British self-respect." Oh dear.
The movie has scored rather dismal box-office return of just £602 from nine cinemas, delivering an average of £67, plus previews of £320, according to The Guardian. Dyer can probably take a crumb of comfort in the fact that many of the sites only screened the film on Sundays, and the movie will play it at least a further 65 cinemas this week though mainly in late morning and afternoon slots. The movie - which features numerous high profile stars including Judi Dench who agreed to donate their fees to a theatre charity - follows the story of a London cab driver, played by Dyer, who has two wives, two lives and precise schedule for juggling both. One of his loves resides in Streatham, while another is settled in Wimbledon. The weird trailer was a foreboding sign, featuring Denise Van Outen singing a theme song while Danny Dyer falls out of windows and hits himself in the face with garden rakes. Oh, and Neil Morrissey turns up, for a bit.

Ah, Valentine’s Weekend. That thing that doesn’t actually exist because there’s only actually one day that’s officially attributed to Valentine’s Day but it does exist in the world of the movie box office. It’s the weekend for people who were too stingy to take their partners out of actual Valentine’s Day, because all of the prices are inflated, to schlep over to the local movie theatre, with a rose between their teeth for no good reason and treat their loved one to a terrible, terrible movie.
That’s right. Normally, we like to give our readers a few tips and pointers with regards to the upcoming box office releases for the forthcoming weekend, make a few recommendations, etc etc. Well, this week, can we simply suggest that you stay home? What we appear to have on our hands this week is the biggest collection of cinematic flops since as far back as we can remember. Or at least since last Valentine’s Weekend.
First up, if you’re still interested in learning which films you should not go to see this weekend, is Safe Haven. A woozy adaptation of yet another Nicholas Sparks novel. Yes, we loved The Notebook. Yes, OK, we admit, what we mean is we loved Ryan Gosling in The Notebook. And yes, we suppose that Zac Efron did a pretty good job in The Lucky One. But it takes more than a pretty couple (Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough) to make a successful adaptation of one of Sparks’ ever-popular tear-jerk romance novels.
British farces work on stage, but usually feel agonisingly stupid on screen. And this is a worst-case scenario, as playwright Cooney adapts his classic 1983 farce without even the slightest adjustment for the cinema. Everything is played as broadly as possible, with luridly coloured sets and actors performing to the top balcony rather than cameras that are right in their faces. So even if it's energetic and sometimes amusingly silly, it's painful to sit through.
Everything centres around John Smith (Dyer), a cheeky cabbie who lives two idyllic lives. He lives with his wife Michelle (Van Outen) in South London and has a second wife Stephanie (Harding) north of the river, juggling them with his shift-work. One day he's injured while rescuing a bag lady (Dench) from two thugs, and he ends up in the hospital. When he doesn't come home on time, Michelle calls the South London police and meets a detective (Cartwright). But Stephanie also calls a cop (Le Prevost), and the two officers are about to rumble John's whole set-up. So he asks his chucklehead neighbour (Morrissey) for help.
As a farce, the story is full of possibility for slapstick hilarity and more telling social comedy. But Cooney never taps into any of this, instead creating a hectic movie that never pauses to catch its breath. Dialog is shouted at full pitch, which bulldozes any potential for clever wit. And most of the actors are goaded into giving smirking performances that make the characters deeply unlikeable. Everyone goes on about what a nice guy John is, but Dyer plays him as a panicky liar who cares about nothing but his own skin. And both Van Outen and Harding over-react so ludicrously to everything that we can't understand how John can bear to be around them.
