EastEnders star Danny Dyer does Top Gun for Children in Need special

From Mick Carter to Maverick...


Two years ago, we saw EastEnders star Danny Dyer give his best impression of John Travolta in Grease for a performance of You’re the One That I Want on Children in Need. Now, he’s back to take on the guise of another Hollywood A-lister: Tom Cruise in Top Gun.


Yes, this year’s charity fundraiser will see Dyer turn from Mick to Maverick as he channels the hit 1986 high-flying action drama. But will he be taking your breath away?


Other highlights of the 2016 appeal show – set to be broadcast on Friday 18 November 2016 – include a preview of the Doctor Who Christmas special, a Would I Lie To You? special edition with Rob Brydon, Lee Mack and David Mitchell, plus a special sketch featuring Eddie Redmayne.
