EastEnders star Danny Dyer has been given airtime on the BBC soap to talk about politics, Brexit, and the World Cup.

After Dyer went viral when appearing on Good Evening Britain, where he talked sense on Brexit and memorably branded former prime minister David Cameron a tw*t, it seems producers have opted to let the actor say more.

The programme’s official Twitter account tweeted about last night’s episode where Dyer was able to vent his frustrations about the current political chaos after David Davis stepped down as Secretary of State in charge of seeing Britain go through with Brexit.

After Dyer’s opinion on GEB that no one knew what Brexit was, bosses have given him airtime to talk Gareth Southgate and the aforementioned Davis as he prepares a morning fry-up.

As he serves up the eggs and bacon, he talks about footballing strategy when it comes to England’s World Cup semi-final with Croatia.

I tell you what we wanna do, stick someone on Modric,’ and says how ‘he gets more space than NASA, that little mug.’

If we get in that final we’ll win it,’ before moving onto politics.

‘You see who’s done the slips and all? David Davis … Put Southgate in there, that’s what you wanna do – the only geezer who wears a waistcoat better than me.’

Whether England get past their next game or there are more departures from the government one thing is for sure: the nation will be hearing plenty more opinion from Danny Dyer, that’s for sure.

Catch Eastenders weeknights, from 7.30pm, on BBC One.
