Danny Dyer has revealed he'd like it if the BBC made late night specials of 'EastEnders' as it would mean his character Mick Carter could swear

Danny Dyer wants to make late night 'EastEnders' specials.

The 37-year-old actor - who is famous for playing foul-mouthed hard men in films such as 'The Football Factory' - stars as Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter in the BBC One soap and has confessed he wishes his character could swear.

He said: "I'd love to push the boundaries. The show would be perfect if they'd let us do some swearing."

However, despite hoping for more gritty scenes, Danny admits he's not sure if viewers could handle it if he stripped off for the cameras.

He added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I'd frighten people, the size of me."

'EastEnders' previously tried out the idea of a younger teenage-focused spin-off titled 'EastEnders: E20', which aired online between 2010 and 2011.

Introducing a late night edition of the soap would see them following in the footsteps of Channel 4's 'Hollyoaks', which has a week of 'Hollyoaks Later' episodes annually to allow for more sexual content, edgier storylines and stronger language.

Meanwhile, Danny could be set to use some of his previous acting skills when his character Mick discovers his wife Linda (Kellie Bright) has been raped by his brother Dean Wicks (Matt Di Angelo) - who he believes at the time is his nephew.

'EastEnders' boss Dominic Treadwell-Collins told the Daily Star newspaper: "Mick has a temper. He will find out, there's no doubt about that.

"This is going to be the start of what is going to be a very epic story for the Carters."
