Danny Dyer once accidentally got “f***ing hammered” during EastEnders filming - due to the real beer pump’s used at the Queen Vic.
The star, who plays landlord Mick Carter, became unintentionally inebriated at work after over-indulging during a scene, according to co-star Danny Hatchard.
Hatchard, who plays Mick's son Lee Carter, revealed it happened when the cast had access to the beer pumps which had actual booze in.
Speaking to the Daily Star, the 28-year-old said: "Behind the bar in the Vic, one of the pumps used to be a real pump. It used to let out real beer.
"We was filming a scene where me and him would down half a pint. But there was quite a few technical difficulties going on, so me and him were downing seven or eight or nine half-pints. By the end we was f**king hammered.
"And then we had a full day's worth of filming to film. Luckily we were able to sober ourselves up, but it was a rookie mistake."
One of the perks of the job it would seem. Though according to comments back in 2018, Dyer is now sober.
The 42-year-old told Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain: “I’ve been off it for 18 months since my well-documented problems.”
The problems mentioned likely refers to a boozy night at the 2017 National Television Awards.
He was forced to take six weeks off work by Eastenders bosses when a video clip emerged of the actor looking worse for wear and acting aggressively.
Asked by Morgan if he missed having a drink, he responded: “A bit, but not really. I hate what it does to me, the way it makes me behave. Problem is, once I start, I can’t stop.”
Dyer found fame staring in movies such as Human Traffic and The Football Factory. He joined EastEnders in 2013.
