Danny Dyer hints he could return to EastEnders – and reveals why he quit

DANNY Dyer has hinted he could return to EastEnders in the future after quitting as Mick Carter.

The actor, 44,  insisted much-loved character will not be killed off leaving the door open for a return in the future.

Speaking to daughter Dani on their Sorted with the Dyers podcast, Danny discussed his exit for the first time and revealed he decided to walk in order to land a “defining role”.

He explained: “I’ve had nine years of playing Mick and I think it [the role of Mick Carter] needs to be rested for a bit and I think I want to go off and I’m still looking for that defining role.

“I don’t know what that is yet, maybe it isn’t there and maybe it is but I’ve always been ambitious and I had a long career before EastEnders. I want to go out there and have a little go and I know the only way to do that is to walk away.

“I just wanted to put my little version out there. It is true, it does give me a weird little feeling to think I’ll be walking away from a job that has been a massive part of my life. And let me tell you something now, Mick’s exit is going to be a very powerful thing.”

He added: “When I go I would like the door to be left open and as far as I know it is. So when I go out there and fail miserably I can come back with my tail between my legs.”

Danny said he was "grateful" for his nine years in Walford but that now was the right time to "roll the dice".

He denied that he's been snapped up by Sky in a bumper £1million deal, insisting "that's not true at all."

Danny joined the soap in 2013 and has been part of some major storylines including a battle with alcoholism that nearly cost Mick his life, the breakdown of his marriage to wife Linda and a harrowing tale of childhood abuse.
