A behind-the-scenes video shot at Elstree Studios has astonished EastEnders viewers. Since 2013, the actor—who currently portrays Mick Carter on the BBC soap opera—has used Instagram to show fans what a typical day for an actor on the network is like.
The 45-year-old takes the audience on a tour of the facility while introducing us to key team members and some well-known individuals. Danny makes fun of the fact that Heather Peace, who plays Eve Unwin, likes watermelon, whereas Lacey Turner, who plays Stacey Slater, consumes a lot of toast.
After saying, “This is the gorgeous Tish,” he puts his arm around Letitia Dean, to whom the Sharon Watts actress responds, “Good morning, good morning.” Then, as Letitia adds, Danny makes a joke about how “Mick and Sharon will be having an affair soon.”
EastEnders viewers were enraged at the pair’s sarcastic remarks and flocked to the comments section to demand that the plot develop.
One user remarked: “I know he said this in jest, but Sharon and Mick having a relationship, well, that would be extremely intriguing.”
“Tish looks so thin x, would love for you two to get together,” a second said. “Ahhh would love for it to happen,” said a third.
As the actor is scheduled to leave the show later this year in a “explosive storyline,” some fans pleaded with Danny Dyer to stay in his role as The Queen Vic landlord.
