Danny Dyer has royal blood! You better believe it.
Our favourite cockney lad has revealed he is related to William the Conqueror, King Edward III, with blood ties to Henry VIII’s adviser and English Reformation advocate, Thomas Cromwell. Fascinating.
Dyer just couldn’t contain his excitement and has been spreading the news, but all details will be revealed on the forthcoming series of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’.
The newest series starts next week, but until then we’ve got you covered.
We’ve put together a list of our top 5 least royal Danny Dyer moments.
1. When he fed this bird.
Stay away from geese Danny. You may be royal now but queeny wouldn’t like you touching her birds.
2. Every time he was on Celebrity Juice.
Danny threw a strop every time his “real name” was revealed, when he put on a fluffy jumper, when he dressed up as ‘Uncle Danny’ and so many more amazing moments. Watch them all here.
3. When he narrated the 2013 John Lewis Xmas advert.
“There once was an animal, who had never seen Christmas. What a loser.”
4. When Danny addressed the important issue of your local pub.
“What do you need in a pub? Beer pumps, a bar, lino, a dart board and a pool table. Maybe a telly for the football. Chairs and tables, clearly. Maybe a beer towel for colour. That’s it.
“You’re going in for a drink and a laugh with your mates – you don’t need a six-course Thai menu and an interior by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen to do that.”
5. The iconic ‘Nice One Bruva’
The start of his film career as an actor and the moment that paved his future in film and TV.
