Danny Dyer: Countdown's Susie Dent a 'raving sort'

Danny Dyer thinks 'Countdown's Susie Dent is a "raving sort".

The 'EastEnders' actor - who got engaged to his childhood sweetheart Joanne Mas earlier this year - has previously confessed the Dictionary Corner host is his "weird crush" and he's now explained why.

The 37-year-old star appeared on '8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown' last night (10.07.1%) and revealed he has the hots for the linguistics expert when asked by host Jimmy Carr if he was "feeling confident".

Danny replied: "Yeah, well ... I'd rather be with [Susie] Dent over there. She is double clever and she has a lovely beautiful boat [face]."

Former 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Rachel Riley - who is the maths expert on the Channel 4 show then revealed that Susie had been made aware of his feelings towards her.

The blonde beauty said: "Susie has had a complex since you described her on Radio 1 as your weird crush."

Danny - who plays Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter in the BBC One soap - then added: "She [Susie] is a raving sort."
