EastEnders actor Danny Dyer will briefly vacate the Queen Vic boozer for a role heading up an altogether more civilised affair – a guest slot hosting satirical series Have I Got News For You. Dyer will front the popular news quiz on December 7th.
This is not Dyer’s only upcoming venture on the BBC, after it was previously revealed he would be fronting a historical programme for the channel – Danny’s Right Royal Family – following on from the revelation he is a distant relative of the royals in his 2016 edition of Who Do You Think You Are?
The new show will see Dyer discovering how his ancestors lived, as well as learning to hunt in the style of distant relative, William the Conqueror.
Speaking about his royal connections, Dyer explained (in typical Dyer style), “I’m still in shock at the fact that I’m related to such important people,” he said.
“I’ve had a ball getting to know them. It was a nutty experience.”
He is also thought to be appearing alongside daughter and Love Island winner Dani Dyer and her boyfriend Jack Fincham, in a fly-on-the-wall-style show observing their life.
