Harry confirmed the cameo to The Sun and said: “I’ve always wanted to have a drink in the Queen Vic. Danny Dyer was terrific to work with.”

A source added to the publication: “Harry has made no secret of the fact he wanted to be in the show.

“Mick likes wearing his West Ham shirt so I’m sure they’ll swap some Cockney banter about the Hammers.

“They made him feel so welcome and he felt really at home. He only has eight lines but he plays them as himself – not as a character.”

Back in January Harry was lobbying to get himself an appearance on the show.

He even revealed how he’d written his own script for the cameo – just in case.
