EastEnders: Danny Dyer to film World Cup comments on England’s defeat against Italy

EastEnders will feature a clip of freshly filmed World Cup reaction in the first episode to screen after England’s debut match in the tournament.

The episode will feature a clip of  Danny Dyer’s character Mick Carter and his daughter Nancy (Maddy Hill) – a West Ham fanatic –  in the Vic discussing England’s 2-1 defeat against Italy.

The Mirror reports that a source close to the show says Danny and Maddy will record the footage and it will be dropped in seamlessly with the rest of the episode.

They said: “It wouldn’t be right if Mick Carter, who loves the beautiful game, didn’t comment on England’s first big game of the World Cup. If the country is talking about, so too would the residents of Walford.”

The BBC soap have previous recorded last minute clips of Andy Murray’s Wimbledon win and the birth of Prince George.

The EastEnders episode will air on BBC1, 7.00pm, Monday, June 16
