“Mind the gap luv!” Danny Dyer becomes Bromley-by-Bow’s Tube announcer


Yes, you read that right

Oh Danny how we love thee. And today we love Bow too (or its Tube station anyway), because Danny Dyer – aka Mike Carter in EastEnders and Moff in nineties classic Human Traffic – is on the station blower telling us to MIND THE GAP!

As part of EastEnders’ 30th birthday celebrations, Dyer recorded a series of announcements which will be played throughout today.

In the soap opera, Bromley-by-Bow station is depicted as Walford East – home to Albert Square – hence why it was chosen as the commemorative station for the EastEnders’ birthday.

Speaking to the BBC, Dyer said: “I can’t tell you how much I loved sitting in the control room with them lovely ladies in their blue coats who work tirelessly.

“I remember I used to go through [Bromley-by-Bow] 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.”

Dyer has no qualms when it comes to sending himself up. Check out his reflective haikus on YouTube here.
