Danny Dyer 'splashes £180k on luxury Bentley' after becoming EastEnders highest paid star
DANNY Dyer treated himself to a luxurious new Bentley and has turned heads with his "flashy" new wheels.
The EastEnders star, 43, spent £180,000 on his new wheels as it was revealed he's the highest paid star on the BBC soap.
"Danny was out and about in Loughton, which is a pretty affluent area. But even here, the car stood out because it is so flashy," an onlooker told the Daily Star.
His flashy new purchase comes as it was confirmed he is the highest paid star on EastEnders.
Show insiders claim he is paid £400,000 a year to play Mick Carter, about £100,000 more than the next highest paid actor, Adam Woodyatt, 52, who plays Ian Beale.
Danny also brings in the big bucks from his Saturday night quiz show The Wall, podcast, Sorted With The Dyers, which he hosts alongside daughter, Dani.
But despite being worth about £4million, Danny could have been earning a lot more had he not missed his one shot at becoming a Hollywood star.
Danny thinks he could've seen his name in the big lights if only he'd said yes to playing a sociopathic gangster in 2009's The Take.
The role of Freddie Jackson ended up going to Tom Hardy who would go on to take Hollywood by storm and even earn himself an Oscar nomination along the way.
Speaking on his podcast – Sorted with the Dyers – alongside daughter Dani Dyer, he revealed he regretted rejecting the role in the Sky crime drama.
Asked what he would tell his 15-year-old self, he said: "I'd have gone: 'Right, you're going to be offered a job called The Take.
"Say yes to it even though your agent and everyone is going, 'No, don't do it, because if you do this you're going to be pigeonholed as a gangster for the rest of your life.' "
He added: "My 15-year-old self would go: 'F**k off, you got any fags mate?'
"And I would say: 'No, listen. Do say yes to The Take. Because if you don't they will give it to an actor called Tom Hardy, and it'll be the making of him and he will go off and go to Hollywood. And you won't.' "
