Danny Dyer trying to 'stay out of trouble'

Danny Dyer is trying to "stay out of trouble".

The 'EastEnders' actor - who has admitted to cheating on his fiancee and childhood sweetheart Joanne Mas in the past - insists he is now focused on his work and looking after his children, 18-year-old Dani, eight-year-old Sunnie and 19-month-old Arty.

Asked if he still goes out partying, he said: "No, not any more. Running about after a 19 month old, that's our lives. I get home, have an hour with Art, put the kids to bed, learn my dialogue, have a little chat with my missus and boom! I get up and it starts again. Me and Jo need to find time soon to go away for the weekend, just on our Jack, away from the kids. I do like the odd night out but I can't easily go for a cheeky pint now so I'm just trying to stay out of trouble and bring up my kids."

The 37-year-old star has confessed he regrets the way he's behaved in the past but hopes his children have learnt from his mistakes.

He told OK! magazine: "Look, I've always had this self-destruct button. I've always gone at it without thinking and that's part of being a human being. I balance my life now with the good stuff and, for me, that means being with Jo and the children. It's when I'm not with them that the demons come out. The kids look up to me but they can also learn from my mistakes.

"I don't want to smother them or lecture them about anything. You have to go through life and experience the beautiful moments and the horrendous darker days. We don't live in a Disney world, and we're not a Disney Channel family."
