Remember when Danny Dyer off EastEnders and off being a Cockney geezer and off that sex dream you had once, yeah him, well do you remember when he licked Mary Berry full in the face and then ran away?

We do. We think about that celebrity encounter every day. It’s our mental happy place. We like to imagine the scene in slo-mo: Danny Dyer, crouched and uncertain, his eyes set on Britain’s stand-in queen. Mary, chatting with some acquaintances as she waits for her Uber outside the TV Choice Awards. A lunge, a sprint, the kill. Fin.

More news!

    Anyway, turns out Danny Dyer feels pretty bad about the whole affair, because he apologised to her at this year’s TV Choice Awards in front of the entire audience.

    After the GBBO hostess handed over the gong for Best Soap to the EastEnders cast, Danny bounded up on stage and said: “I want to apologise to Mary for last year. It was embarrassing. I was out of order and it’ll never happen again. Sorry Mary, you’re a lovely lady.”

    His co-star Letitia Dean – who plays Sharon Mitchell in the BBC1 show – then yelled: “Mary is traumatised!”

    Mary had already shifted to the other end of the stage, where she stayed for the rest of the cast’s acceptance speech.

    Soz, Danny. Mary may forgive, but she never forgets.
