Danny Dyer has poked fun at 'Coronation Street's upcoming live episode, insisting it is "f**k all" compared to 'EastEnders' live week in February
Danny Dyer says 'Coronation Street's live episode is "f**k all" compared to 'EastEnders' live week.
The 38-year-old actor - who plays Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter in the BBC One soap - has admitted he "can't wait to tune in" to his ITV rivals' upcoming live episode but insisted it should be a piece of cake for the actors as he and his co-stars managed an entire week of live action.
He said: "I know what it's like - it's tough!
"You've got to remember that we did a week ... So one night is f**k all really! But I'm rooting for them."
Danny also revealed that although his on-screen wife Kellie Bright (Linda Carter) will be busy training for 'Strictly Come Dancing' over the next few months, there will still be plenty of big storylines for the Carter family.
The 'Football Factory' actor told OK! Online: "Where do I start? We've got loads coming up.
"New Year's Day is proper! It's all about the Carters."
Danny's comments come after 'EastEnders' executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins warned Kellie she could be "broken" by her jam-packed schedule.
He told The Sun newspaper: "I have lots of material planned for Kellie. Linda's not going to disappear because you can't have the Queen Vic without Linda.
"We gave Kellie a couple of weeks off at the beginning so that she can throw herself into it ['Strictly']. But there's a point later in the run when she's going to be really busy.
"There will be a point where I said to her, 'You are going to be broken'. But we'll just keep watching her, just keeping an eye on her."
