Danny Dyer will more than likely be making tomorrow’s commute for some Londoners immeasurably better after becoming Bromley-On-Bow’s tube announcer.
An inspired choice.
The 37-year-old actor took over the control room, recording new messages for Wednesday’s commuters, to celebrate Eastenders’ 30th Anniversary – and he didn’t disappoint.
Amongst his Dyer-esque announcements were: “Stand back away from them closing doors. You make my nerves bad,” and “There is a right pucker service running on all London undergrounds.”
Speaking about his stint as a train announcer, Danny, who plays Mick Carter on the long running soap, admitted he had a blast.
He said: “I can’t tell you how much I loved sitting in the Bromley-By-Bow control room with them lovely ladies in their blue coats who work tirelessly.
“I remember I used to go through there and get off at Mile End on the district line and change to the Central Line to get to Stratford. It brought back some happy memories. So remember everyone – mind that gap.”
London Underground’s area manager Sandra Anderson was also pleased with Mr Dyer’s enthusiasticly unique approach to speaking to customers.
“Our station is at the heart of the East End and it is fantastic that as part of EastEnders’ 30th anniversary,” he said.
Well, if he fancies a change in career, there’s clearly a job for Danny at TFL.
