'EastEnders' Actor Danny Dyer Having Queen Vic Replica Built In His House

Danny Dyer is enjoying his time on ‘EastEnders’, so much so that he even wants a replica of the soap’s set to come home to every day.


The soap actor, who has played Mick Carter in the BBC series since 2013, has revealed that he’s planning to have a replica of the Queen Vic, the pub where his character is the landlord, installed in his house.

Speaking to OK! magazine, he explains: “When we move to the new house I’ve got an annexe at the back and I’m going to build a mini Queen Vic. That’s going to be my man cave, my little boozer.

“I’ve got the prop guys from the show coming around with the actual blueprints to the pub.

“I’ll have a little Queen Victoria bust and everything and a little sign outside. I’m going to completely Vic it up!”

Danny has previously credited his role in ‘EastEnders’ with breathing new life into his career, claiming: “[Before ‘EastEnders’] I was a laughing stock, really: Danny Dyer film - straight to bargain bin.

“Dominic Treadwell-Collins had read an interview where I’d spoken about being brought up by women – my nan and my mum raised me.

"I was at a low ebb until this perfect marriage of 'EastEnders' came along. If Dom hadn’t read that interview, I’d probably be doing f***ing ‘Big Brother’ now.”

During the new interview, Danny also poured water on rumours that his teenage daughter, Dani, was dating his ‘EastEnders’ son, Sam Strike.

“[He] comes over to my house a lot,” he insists, “Dani loves him - we all do - and he loves my whole family. [The press] put two and two together and come up with 20. It’s ridiculous. Dani’s embarrassed by it and Sam’s embarrassed - but it’s rubbish.”
