EastEnders’ Danny Dyer awkwardly dodges question about pregnant daughter Dani

EastEnders hard-man Danny Dyer awkwardly dodged a question about becoming a grandfather while appearing on The One Show on Thursday night.

His daughter, Love Island babe Dani Dyer, is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Sammy Kimmence.

But when host Alex Jones asked the 43-year-old about becoming a granddad, he completely ignored her.

Instead, he took the time to declare his undying love for his wife Joanne Mas, as he revealed that today (Thursday) was their four-year wedding anniversary.

Elsewhere in the chat, he confessed he was left in tears when his young son smashed up all of his Lego creations.

The actor has admitted he became "obsessed" with the building blocks during lockdown and built up some iconic UK landmarks during his down time.

But when he ran out of room, he gave his little boy Arty, six years old, permission to knock it all down.

Speaking on BBC One evening series, Danny said: "I got obsessed with Lego during lockdown.

"I had a sad moment because I had to smash it up the other day because there was no room and my boy, who took great pleasure in it, smashed up my Hogwarts castle with his aeroplane.

"I was in tears.

"Then he smashed up my Big Ben. I wouldn't let him near my retro car Lego, but he did smash up Trafalgar Square, so it was carnage."

Speaking from the set of his new show The Wall, he added: "I was distraught."

With EastEnders set to return to screens soon for its "second series" after coronavirus forced it off-air, Danny teased what is to come.

He said: "The storyline I've been gifted with is by far the best storyline I've ever had and I wish I could tell you more. It's a powerful, powerful thing."

Danny, who plays Mick Carter, promised: "We're coming back with a bang."

However he also confessed he was keen for things to get back to normal, given filming must now happen with extra social distancing precautions.

He said: "I don't think it's gonna catch on, this thing. We've got to get over it. But I'm grateful to be carrying on, I've got to say."

The One Show airs weekdays at 7pm on BBC One
