Danny Dyer insists the worst thing about being on 'EastEnders' is that he doesn't get to work alongside late character Ethel Skinner's pet pooch Little Willy
Danny Dyer misses Little Willy.
The straight-talking actor joined the 'EastEnders' cast as Mick Carter, the new landlord of the Queen Vic pub, last month but is disappointed that late character Ethel Skinner's pet pug Willy is no longer a member of the cast.
Asked what the worst thing about the BBC One soap is, he lamented: "The fact that Little Willy isn't in it anymore. Lovely little dog he was, I don't know what he was. Ethel never had a scene without Willy."
The 36-year-old star has a secret crush on sexy wordsmith Susie Dent from quiz show 'Countdown' and admitted he is attracted to her intelligence.
Danny said: "It's the bird on 'Countdown'. Susie Dent. [When I appeared on 'Countdown'] that's when my little crush started, when I was in the Dictionary Corner.
"We had a little bond, it was very intriguing, very clever. Some of the words coming out of her mouth - it was sending me insane."
The actor also readily confessed that the worst film he has ever been in was 'Basement', a 2010 British horror flick which he couldn't even bring himself to watch.
When asked what his worst ever movie was while on BBC Radio 1's 'The Matt Edmondson Show', he added: "'The Basement'. It's like a horror film, but it's just not scary. To be honest I only watched about 10 minutes of it. I didn't really read the script, I just look at what I've got to film that day and bang it out, really. It still hurts talking about it, let's move on."
