EastEnders’ Danny Dyer planning to retire after 2019 leaves him ‘burnt out’
EastEnders’ Danny Dyer has revealed he’s “burnt out” and is planning to retire.
The TV geezer and infamous hellraiser is already plotting a spiritual trip across the globe in his 50s.
It comes as he balances his Albert Square role with popular game show The Wall and a string of other commitments on the box.
Danny, 42, said: “2020 is a big year. I’m going to take my foot off the pedal slightly, I did a lot last year and I burnt myself out a little bit.
“So this year I’m going to do The Wall again and just stick with the EastEnders things.”
Danny is a hit as Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter. He also appeared in BBC documentary Danny Dyer’s Right Royal Family after he discovered he had links to the monarchy.
He joked he could fill in for Prince Harry when he leaves the royals. He said: “I descend from royalty, so why not?”
Danny and wife Jo, who have three kids including Love Island winner Dani, have already started planning their retirement.
He said: “We are going to retire when our kids are old enough. In 10 years I’m going to take a step back and get my life back. We want to go to India and Cuba. We want to do it all.
“We have been going on wellbeing retreats. We do vinyasa, healing, drink lots of ginger, vegan food. We are full time yogis.”
Danny’s interest in healthy living was sparked by Jo, who encouraged him to build a yoga hut in the garden of their Essex home.
The couple first began dating in 1992 and married in 2016. And despite reports of Danny’s sometimes wayward behaviour, Jo has stood by him.
Asked about their longevity, Jo said: “We watch a lot of our friends divorce and we are still together. It’s like, how? Why?”
Danny said: “When you truly love someone, you accept all their flaws. You fall in love with the good parts but as human beings we have what we call ‘wonkiness’.
"You have to fall in love with that as well. The love we have is such a rare thing.”
Jo revealed the couple are planning a “low-key” renewal of vows. She said: “I think we should, with all the s*** I’ve had to deal with as a wife.”
Danny was speaking at the premiere of Cirque du Soleil Luzia at the Royal Albert Hall.
