Danny Dyer unexpectedly spoke for the nation this summer when he managed to vocalise the entire country’s thoughts on Brexit.
Speaking on Good Evening Britain, the EastEnders actor, 41, blasted former Prime Minister David Cameron and compared the constant confusion around Britain leaving the European Union as some “mad riddle”.
His surprisingly astute views on the topic which is currently plaguing the nation (and looks set to continually plague it for the next few months) saw him land a role as guest host on satirical panel show Have I Got News for You.
Dyer was joined by Sara Pascoe and Judy Murray, alongside team leaders Paul Merton and Ian Hislop.
But viewers were as divided as the nation is over Brexit on how well Dyer did in the role – while some loved seeing his gruff charm on the programme, others were left less than impressed, saying he didn’t quite fit the show.
Keen to air their opinions on Twitter, one particularly scathing fan wrote, “Did the Have I Got News For You team not think to check whether Danny Dyer can actually present?
Danny Dyer was an inspired gamble that started badly but improved a little. The funniest thing about tonight’s #hignfy is the number of people who think that he is funny. He’s not. It’s his script that is funny. Comedy is all about timing and he didn’t have it.
