Danny Dyer is back on our screens following his EastEnders departure last year, as he stars in Channel 5 drama Heat.


The new show, which is airing this week on four consecutive nights, follows two families as they embark on their annual holiday together with disastrous consequences.

Twists and turns are abound in Heat, with Dyer recently teasing of the series: “The third and fourth episodes are so good, especially the end of the third one because you think, ‘What the f**k?’ You can’t wait for the fourth, you need to gorge on it immediately."

He continued: "You really can’t believe that this story has taken this mad twist so, at the end, within the fire surrounding, Steve does become the ultimate lion, if you like, within the kingdom."

Dyer stars in the new Channel 5 drama alongside an ensemble of Australian and international actors.

So, who else stars in the drama? Read on for everything you need to know about the cast of Heat.
