'Confusion' over Dyer 'Enders link

Mystery surrounds suggestions that Danny Dyer has been offered a role in BBC soap EastEnders, DS can reveal.

The East-End-born 31-year-old - who is most noted for his role in soccer hooligan film Football Factory - claimed that he was being 'headhunted' for a part in the Walford-based serial after meeting with controller of BBC drama production John Yorke.

More recently, Dyer said that he had scrapped plans to join the soap, despite bosses allegedly lining him up as the show's 'potential saviour'.

However, a source told DS: "Everyone's more than a little confused. One of Danny's people actually called to arrange a meeting with John [Yorke] - which he happily went to - and the next thing, Danny's quoted as saying that producers want him to 'save' the programme."

They added: "EastEnders is in good form at the moment and certainly doesn't need rescuing! Everyone's quite flattered he apparently likes the show so much, though - and he'd certainly set a few hearts fluttering on set."
