Danny Dyer interrupted his wedding vows to swat away a wasp who had rudely flown around him as he was reading out his emotional words
Danny Dyer had to start his wedding vows again after being interrupted by a wasp.
The 39-year-old actor's emotional words were rudely broken up by the pesky insect while he was preparing to marry his childhood sweetheart Jo Mas in Hampshire, southern England, last weekend, but he soon put paid to the black and yellow creature by swatting it away.
He asked the registrar: "Sorry, can I start again?"
During the ceremony, Danny reacted when the congregation began chuckling as the registrar stated his full name, Daniel John Dyer.
He said: "All right, all right."
The 'EastEnders' actor - who plays pub landlord Mick Carter in the soap - also put on a mock threat towards his guests when the statement "if anyone knows of any lawful cause why this couple cannot be wed or lawfully be joined together in matrimony, let them speak now" was read out.
Several of Danny's Albert Square co-stars attended the ceremony, including his pregnant on-screen wife Kellie Bright, who plays Linda Carter.
The TV actor proposed to Jo at Kellie's wedding to husband Paul Stocker two years ago and the actress admitted it was "lovely" to be able to see the couple tie the knot.
She told HELLO! magazine: "I wasn't party to that. But this certainly takes me back to our wedding.
"Danny is one of my best friends and Jo has become a very close friend too.
"They were at our wedding and it is lovely to be able to be at theirs."
Several other of Danny's 'EastEnders' co-stars were in attendance at the nuptials, including his on-screen mum Linda Henry (Shirley Carter) and on-screen kids, Danny-Boy Hatchard (Lee Carter), Maddy Hill (Nancy Carter) and Ted Reilly (Johnny Carter).
Danny-Boy, who was an usher at the nuptials, added: "I'm very close to Danny. He is like a father figure to me and it's been an honour to be so involved in his big day."
