EastEnders' Danny Dyer investigates his right royal past as the genealogy series returns

The hit genealogy show has turned up some incredible revelations over the years, but Danny Dyer’s discovery that he has royal blood takes some beating!

The EastEnders star goes on a fascinating journey into his roots, which begins with the emotional story of his great-great-grandmother Mary Ann Buttivant, who was convicted of hiding her dead baby.

But as he goes further back, the joy – and disbelief – on his face is a picture when he learns that not only is he related to Henry VIII’s chief minister, Thomas Cromwell, but that he is also a descendant of Edward III.

The regulars at The Queen Vic are going to have to do some serious bowing next time they fancy a pint!
