Danny Dyer speaks out on EastEnders future amidst rumours Mick Carter will die

Danny joined the soap in 2013

Danny Dyer, who plays Mick Carter in EastEnders, has spoken out amidst rumours his alter ego will die in the show's 35th anniversary episodes.

As reported in the Mirror, Danny said: "Another 10 year stretch and then I'll just take a backseat.

"I love EastEnders. I'm very grateful, it's a lovely, lovely job. I'm on the best soap ever invented."

However, one major character will die on the soap's anniversary as they will fall into the River Thames as the Carters, along with other Albert Square residents, celebrate The Queen Vic, winning the 'Best Pub' competition.

According to the publication, at Cirque du Soleil's Luzia premiere, Danny said: "I think I'm alright," before adding that the death is "a massive shock to the whole cast."

Danny joined the soap in 2013, but could we see him be killed off?

Is his committment to stay a red herring to throw us off the scent? Or is Mick definitely not the one who'll lose his life?

Recently the cast of the BBC soap were spotted filming the scenes on a boat.
