    Danny Dyer Is To Deliver Channel 4's Alternative Christmas Message

    “That shambles down in Westminster, what a palaver that is. I mean where are our leaders? Where are they? There’s been more backstabbing than we have in Albert Square.”

    Danny Dyer, man of the people, is to present Channel 4's Alternative Christmas Message on Christmas Day.

    As well as talking about Brexit, Dyer comments on Donald Trump and his presidency, including his decision to not attend a World War I memorial event due to bad weather.

    Here is a snippet of his speech.

    The EastEnders actor also talks about role models: “That’s what I think we need more of, heroes, role models. If we need anything for 2019, it’s for each of us to find who we look up to. Could be your mum, could be your dad, your stepdad, your nan, teacher, social worker. Maybe even a handsome roguish actor off your favourite soap.”

    Dyer has always been known for his outspoken views, but this year particularly so. His views on Brexit on a random post-football special called Good Evening Britain went viral. (Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was sitting right by him at the time.)

    The Alternative Christmas Message will air at 3:50pm on Christmas Day on Channel 4.
