Danny Dyer counts sheep before his wedding

By  | 

EastEnders actor Danny Dyer suffered a sleepless night before his wedding day.

The TV star is marrying his long-term partner Joanne Mas with a Spanish-themed celebration in the New Forest.

Danny, 39, who plays pub landlord Mick Carter on the soap, told his Twitter followers he desperately needed some shut eye.

Sleep. It Just don't wanna know tonight. It's being right tricky.

Meanwhile, the couple’s daughter Dani, 20, posted a snap of her mother wearing a dressing gown with the word “bride” on the back while preparing for the big day.

The actor told the magazine: “I have been a typical man about the wedding, I have left it to the missus. At this stage I am just a guest. I don’t even know the postcode.”

Joanne said the theme comes from the fact her father is from Majorca, saying: “There will be a Gypsy Kings-type band, flamenco dancers, tapas, paella and sangria – and I am still working on Julio Iglesias!”

The couple are also expected to pay tribute to Dyer’s East End roots and love of West Ham football club.

Joanne said: “He is the most cockney person I have ever met but I don’t want him to come dressed as a pearly king. I may get some bubble machines though and insist that everyone sings (West Ham club anthem) I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles.”
