Danny Dyer: 'Mark Wright is all I hate about the celebrity world'

By
Danny Dyer has spoken to Digital Spy about his new film, Twitter trolls - and his deep dislike for some particular reality stars.

On his recent Twitter spats with a troll involving his teenage daughter, he said: "If you're famous it opens you up to people. Everyone's got an opinion which they're entitled to, but people either love me and think I'm a legend or they despise me, hate me.

"I like a bit of banter, but when you get my kids involved it's disgusting. They do it to get a reaction. People have a perception of me. We all do it. A prime example for me is Peter Andre.

"I've never met him but he just irritates me. I'm sure he's lovely and a great dad, and whatever, but I'm sure people have that about me and are just disgusted by my whole being. With Twitter I'll never let them win. There's this thing called 'biting' and going 'fishing' – and I love to f**king bite. I'll f**king bite all day long!"

Another famous male he has no time for is former TOWIE star-turned-presenter Mark Wright. Dyer said: "I got mistaken for him once. In a café. It put me right off my beans. Again, I don't know him, but he's everything I hate about this whole celebrity world.

"It's mainly because of some of his quotes saying he wants to be the next James Bond. If he's the next James Bond, it's over for me. It's the arrogance of it all - it irritates me. Mark's not up my street, he'll never be a mate of mine – good luck to him, just stay away from me."

Although he's still with longtime girlfriend Joanne Mas, he said about groupies: "I still get a bit of that. It comes with the territory. Girls quite like the fame. One gay man asked me to draw round my hands and feet for him, so I did and sent it back to him.

"I thought, 'Crack on, have it'. He could have asked for me to draw round something else but the paper weren't big enough!"

On his lead comedy role in the farcical Run For Your Wife starring Sarah Harding, Denise Van Outen and a host of cameo appearances, he said of his part: "I love this character - he's very endearing and he doesn't swear.

"He's not got any of this hardman bullshit around him which I've been pigeon-holed into - I've got a reputation of swearing. I'm not a hardman - I'm wearing a velvet collar at the moment!"

With cameos including Christopher Biggins, Lionel Blair, Cliff Richard and Andrew Sachs - he said his favourite was Dame Judi Dench. "She was amazing," he said. "Three hours with her is better than three years in any drama school. She knew who I was – or maybe someone told her – she came up to me and said, 'Hello Dan'. I had to have a sit-down.

"She taught me how to kiss - tongued me straight away. No, she's so effortless, and although she's got a tiny part playing a bag lady, she took it so seriously – I think she did it for a bottle of Pimms and some flowers. It says a lot about a person."
