Danny Dyer opened up about his naughty send-off gift from his EastEnders co-stars after filming his final scenes as the infamous Mick Carter.
The TV soap legend, 45, is set to bow out of the BBC One soap after nine years on the programme which is set to air on Christmas Day.
But his fellow actors couldn’t let the TV star leave the set without giving him a fitting farewell gift that the doting dad will be sure to never forget.

Ahead of his grand exit, the hunky soap star told The Sun how his tantalising gift has caused quite the stir at home.
He told the publication: “I got my Albert Square board and they [his EastEnders co-stars] bought me a sign.” And it turns out his sign was rather explicit.
The large neon sign – which read “Shoot the c**t” – was never going to embarrass Danny who is known for his effin’ and blindin’ both on and off set.
The actor quickly explained how the crude sign was an “in” joke with his TV family, however the cheeky joke hasn’t gone down quite as well with his loving wife Jo Mas.
Speaking of his years on the set of the BBC soap, he told the publication: “Basically, I would say, ‘Shall we shoot the c**t?’ – meaning the scene. I know it is unpalatable but it is something I would say.
“Anyway, I've had some issues with my wife about hanging this neon sign in the house. The missus ain’t having it. It is in the office at the mo.”
But it wasn’t all about the explicit gifts and cheeky jokes, as Danny admitted he was struggling to choke back tears as he said farewell to the Square after almost a decade on the show.
He confessed that he became nothing more than a wet blanket as he bid a final farewell to the cast and crew at his star-studded leaving bash.
The party was thrown by his close pal Kellie Bright who played his onscreen wife Linda on the soap, and she certainly made sure to let the star leave with a bang.
He explained: “A part of me just wanted to duck out because it was emotional for me. I did a little speech. There were a lot of tears and there was a trailer of the best bits.
“It would have been easier to go out the back door. But Kellie organised something proper and I’m glad we did it.”
