Danny Dyer fakes emergencies to skip EastEnders
Danny Dyer fakes emergencies to skip 'EastEnders' filming.
The 37-year-old actor is renowned for playing pub landlord Mick Carter on the BBC One soap, but his real life seven-year-old daughter Sunnie has revealed he makes up family emergencies in order to miss work and lounge around his house.
When asked about her dad's biggest secret in an episode of ITV1's 'Big Star's Little Star' - which is set to be broadcast later this month - Sunnie said: "Dad calls into work saying he can't come in because he's helping mummy. But he just lays around on the sofa all day."
The embarrassed star was left red-faced by his daughter's awkward admission, confessing he is expecting to be hauled in front of the show's boss Dominic Treadwell-Collins to be punished for his sneaky behaviour.
He added: "I'm in trouble now. I hope he's [Dominic] not watching.
"I knew I should never have done this show."
Later on in the programme, the star's hilarious daughter made her father even more uncomfortable, when she joked the actor - who recently got engaged to his long-term girlfriend Joanne Mas - has bad breath.
Speaking about his kissing scenes on the soap, she said: "Mummy doesn't like him doing it and it's really disturbing because he's got bad breath."
