'EastEnders' star Kellie Bright reveals it was Danny Dyer's idea to wear her pink dressing gown and he had to convince his bosses to let him wear it
'EastEnders' actress Kellie Bright says it was Danny Dyer who wanted to wear her pink dressing gown on the show.
The Walford hardman has been seen dressed in the baby pink gown in several scenes as Mick Carter while at home above the Queen Vic pub and Kellie - who plays his on-screen wife Linda - has revealed Danny insists on the attire to bosses.
In an interview with Mirror Online, she said: "It's all Danny's idea. Danny fights for that dressing gown. Tooth and nail. He's like, 'I'm not doing a scene without that pink dressing gown,' that kind of thing."
She added: "I know everyone remembers that. It was because it was really early on when Danny put his head out of and he was in my dressing gown. That has stayed as well. We were filming in the dressing gown the other day so it's not going anywhere. I can't imagine him not on the pink dressing gown, can you?"
Kellie insists she and Danny have become "best friends" on the set of the BBC One soap and she couldn't imagine not seeing every day at work.
She said: "Working alongside Danny is definitely one of my career highlights. He has become one of my best friends. It's such an intense working life that you have here - because you work such long hours and you spend more time here than you do with your own family - it's like having another real life. I know that sounds bonkers and it is a bit bonkers, but that is what it's like ... You have good days and you have bad days - if I didn't get on with Danny or he wasn't the person he is, my time here would be completely different. He makes this job really enjoyable for me. He is so generous and such a lovely man."
