'What a woman!' Danny Dyer on Jodie Whittaker

EastEnders actor Danny Dyer has revealed that he’s a huge fan of Jodie Whittaker’s Time Lord – and that he’d love the Doctor Who star to pop up in Walford!

Asked who he’s been enjoying watching on the box, Danny, who plays Mick Carter in EastEnders, replied: “Jodie Whittaker from Doctor Who.”

Danny then went on to praise her acting skills to TV Times and then said he’d like to see her in Albert Square!

“What a woman; an incredible actress. I’d love to see her cross over to EastEnders.”

Danny was chatting after being voted Favourite Soap Star in the annual TV Times awards.

“I’m a bit choked up,” he said. “It’s a bit of a surprise, but a lovely early Christmas present. I’ll put it in my dressing room, so I can look at it every day and be proud.”

While Mick’s facing a bleak Christmas after being banged up after being wrongly accused of shooting his ex-pal Stuart Highway, Danny is looking forward to a happier festive period.
