    A look back at Danny’s pop at Schofe

    Presenter Phillip Schofield clashed with Danny Dyer two years running and admitted the EastEnders hardman was “scaring the life out of him”.

    In 2018, in what may have been a planned stunt, Danny got irritated at the host repeatedly asking if he was “alright”.

    He eventually stood and squared up to Schofe, barking: “What, you want to make one with me?”

    Phil joked: “Leave it you, back off. Sit down I’m in charge here mate.”

    The following year Danny sat stoney-faced as Phillip made a gag about him being a fan of “trim down South” – in reference to Corrie’s Trim Up North barber shop.

    The actor failed to respond and turned to the person sitting next to him, ignoring Phil, who laughed awkwardly.
