EastEnders star Danny Dyer has announced his first TV gig since confirming his exit from the BBC soap.

Danny, 44, who announced he will stop playing Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter after nine years, has revealed he will be making a new travel show with his daughter Dani

Appearing on BBC Radio 2 breakfast show with Zoe Ball from the new EastEnders set, Danny gushed over the new role when asked about his new travel TV series.

He said: “Yes, we are doing it soon.

“I want to work with my Dani a lot more. I think one of the reasons I have decided to leave the show is because I do want to explore working with my little Dani, do you know what I mean.

“I love her so much and I think we have such a natural chemistry, such an interesting relationship. I think it needs to be explored more, so we are excited about that.”

EastEnders has yet to confirm when Danny will finish but filming for the travel series is expected to start this summer.

The Walford favourite also teased his exit from EastEnders will be one not to be missed as his final scenes as Mick Carter will be explosive.

“They’ve just been pitched my leaving storyline, which I can’t tell you, which is going to be epic. It’s huge.”

Actress Kellie Bright, who plays his on-screen wife Linda Carter, said: “It is going to be epic. I don’t know how I am going to get through it, actually. Obviously, I am very sad that Danny’s going but it is going to be very, very exciting.”

Toby Alexander-Smith, who plays Gray Atkins – dubbed one of the soap’s worst villains – said he got quite emotional talking about the character, who is set to get his comeuppance this week.

Speaking to Ball from the new set, the actor said: “I think the audience have been waiting for this for a long time, and I think, as an actor, I have as well, so to see it all coming together and to see Gray finally get his comeuppance, I think it is really exciting.

The EastEnders set was originally due to be finished by 2018 at an estimated cost of £59.7 million, but the bill ended up being £86.7 million.

A new schedule will see the soap air on BBC One at 7.30pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
