Danny Dyer ‘had secret feuds with EastEnders’ Jessie Wallace and Steve McFadden’ – after admitting there were a few co-stars he ‘won’t miss’ since leaving the soap
Danny Dyer had secret feuds with EastEnders co-stars Jessie Wallace and Steve McFadden, according to reports.
The actor departed the soap in a dramatic Christmas Day episode at the tail end of 2022, and it’s now been claimed that there were several actors he didn’t get on well with during his nine-yeah stint on Albert Square.
In an appearance on Saturday’s Jonathan Ross Show, Danny admitted that he ‘doesn’t love’ all of his former colleagues and that were were a few he ‘won’t miss.’
It’s now thought that he could have been referring to Jessie, who plays Kat Slater on the show, and Steve, who portrays her current love interest Phil Mitchell.
According to The Mirror, Danny’s strong personality didn’t bode well with Jessie’s equally as dominating nature – with the pair often getting their wires crossed on set.

The publication reported that he was once overheard declaring his ‘hatred’ for the actress, getting into hot water.
A source alleged: ‘Danny and Jessie are both very strong personalities and, while they never let it get in the way of their work, they did not get on.
Adding that there was ‘a lot of tension’ behind the scenes, the source continued: ‘Anyone who worked with them both will be clear he had her in mind when he made his recent remarks’.
Elsewhere, The Sun have reported that he also butted heads with Steve, a veteran of the soap who has played Phil Mitchell for more than 30 years.
The insider explained that the clash began as soon as Danny joined EastEnders in 2013, with Steve appearing on the soap since 1990.
Said to be an ‘open secret’, the pair allegedly rarely worked with one another on set.
‘Steve hated that bosses gave Mick (Danny) the Queen Vic, which spent so many years being at the heart of the Mitchell family,’ another source told The Sun.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Danny, Jessie and Steve. An EastEnders spokesperson declined to comment.

Unspoken tension: While sources have long-claimed a feud between the actor and co-star Steve, who has allegedly disliked Danny since his arrival to the soap in 2013
In 2017, a feud between Steve and Danny was first reported, with the latter allegedly threatening to punch the former during a heated row on set.
The altercation was said to have created a tense environment for the rest of the cast. But denying the claims, a BBC spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘As previously stated, Danny is an extremely popular member of cast and respected by everyone on the show.
Adding fuel to the fire, Danny admitted that it wasn’t all sunshine and roses on the EastEnders set during an appearance on the Jonathan Ross Show this week.
The actor’s final scenes as Mick Carter aired on Christmas Day, and saw the Queen Vic landlord mysteriously lost at sea after plunging into the water to save his estranged wife Linda.
He explained that he ‘does miss’ many of the stars he worked with on the show, and he ‘loves them dearly.’

But when pressed by host Jonathan, the star coyly said ‘not all’ of the soap’s cast have such a valuable place in his heart, but refuses to name any names.
Jonathan asks Danny about his co-stars: ‘Who will you miss the least?’
Danny replies: ‘There’s a few of them actually, I ain’t going to lie. I won’t say [who], you know. Most of them I love dearly. Not all…’
As Jonathan presses: ‘So they know who they are, though?’ Danny says: ‘I would have thought so.’
He explained: There’s a few of them actually, I ain’t going to lie. I won’t say [who], you know. Most of them I love dearly. Not all…’
