British Soap Awards 2018: EastEnders tough guy Danny Dyer squares up to host Phillip Schofield in prank bust-up after the actor failed to win a single nomination and looked miserable throughout the show

He asked Phil: "What, you wanna make one with me?" after an awkward exchange in the crowd.

Phil – who is the longest-standing Soap Awards presenter – said the actor was "scaring the life out of him" before suddenly telling the EastEnders hardman to "back off".

Viewers praised the moment as "iconic" as Phil "put down" Danny Dyer during the fake heated exchange.

One said: "Philip schofield shutting down Danny dyer is better than any scene on any soap in any year ever."

Another added: P"hillip Schofield shouting at Danny Dyer has made my night."

Someone else said: "Got to love Danny Dyer and Phillip Schofield."

Danny Dyer – whose daughter Dani is going into Love Island – failed to win a single nomination in the soap awards.

He looked miserable throughout the show, with fans commenting that he didn't raise a smile when Coronation Street was crowned Best Soap over EastEnders.

It was the first British Soap Awards broadcast live on ITV with host Phillip Schofield celebrating the awards' 20th anniversary.

Despite mainly going without a hitch, viewers were left outraged when the show came to a very abrupt end.

Coronation Street's Helen Worth announced she had just 30 seconds to make her speech on behalf of the cast and crew after winning Best Soap because the two-hour show had overrun.

Host Phillip Schofield edged closer to wrap up Helen's speech after being told the show had overrun.

But while making his closing speech, the credits started rolling while Phil was talking.
