Actor Danny Dyer is reportedly on the straight and narrow, after worrying his boozey antics would upset soap bosses.

Having been a part of the EastEnders setup since 2013 as Mick Carter, Dyer, 40, was told to take a break from acting on the soap after vowing to ‘sort his life out’. The TV hard man his said to have virtually given up the booze in an attempt to get back on track, after the Mirror claimed he pooed on the BBC’s set after the pressures of the job got to him.

His daughter, Dani Dyer, 21, who is about to embark on Ex on the Beach spin-off Survival of the Fittest updated fans on her dad: ‘My dad got a place nearer to work, he has always been at home. But they are really strong, they got married,’ she shared.

After rumoured circulated that he and other half Joanna’s relationship was on the rocks after being together for 20 years, Dani confirmed the reason he was living away and how he’s cut back on alcohol. ‘He needed a place near EastEnders, he works late nights,’ followed by: ‘My dad doesn’t really drink anymore.’

With Dani about to go on her reality TV stint in South Africa, apparently her dad will be keeping an eye out for any funny business.

‘Oh my god, I would never have sex on telly,’ she says, after revealing just how protective he is as a father.

‘He has already given me a warning to behave. I was like, ‘I will’. He is massively protective. I haven’t had many boyfriends so he has had it quite easy until now.’

Even kissing is off the table, according to the youngster: ‘I will have to resist it,’ she said, in relation to anything happening with any of the men on the show. ‘If I want a little kiss I will have to do it when I get out. If they like me they can wait.’

Dyer won the NTA in 2015 for Serial Drama Performance for his long-term role as Mick in the BBC soap.
