Danny Dyer wants Dame Joan Collins to join EastEnders

Mick Carter will return to Albert Square soon

Danny Dyer wants Dame Joan Collins to join EastEnders - so their characters can enjoy "a roll about".

The 41-year-old actor would love to see the 85-year-old acting legend appear in Albert Square and then for her character to get jiggy with his alter-ego Mick Carter, and the former Dynasty actress thinks it would "be fun" to play out such a part.

Speaking on this Saturday's (15.12.18) Jonathan Ross Show, he says: "I would love to give Joan a little shout in it ['EastEnders']."

Joan adds: "I’ve been in Coronation Street, I made an appearance. They’ve never asked me again.

"OK, I’ll come on, what could I play? A bar lady?"

Danny then quips: "No, me and you could have a roll about."

She says: "That’d be fun, why not?"

He is out and he is on the rampage

Mick is soon to be released from prison and he may need a happier focus like Joan in his life after finding out his arch nemesis Stuart Highway (Ricky Champ) has been making moves on his wife Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) in his absence.

Speaking about Mick's release, Danny says: "He is out and he is on the rampage. He’s got the right hump, Jon.

"He has been set up and not only that, [Stuart] has been sniffing around my old woman in it and wearing my clothes behind the bar, so I want some answers mate. It has wound me up a bit.

"It’s Christmas in Walford, someone is going over mate."
