Danny Dyer once had to "punch" his way out of a wardrobe after he accidentally built it around himself.

The 46-year-old TV star - who previously played Mick Carter on BBC soap 'EastEnders' - constructed some furniture shortly after becoming a father to his daughter Dani Dyer, 27, only to find he had trapped himself in it.

He said: "I had a child young and tried to build a wardrobe.

"But I built myself into it. I had to punch the back of it to get out. My missus [Joanne Mas] still mocks me to this day."

The actor pokes fun at himself on the next 'The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer' episode on Sunday (24.03.24).

Danny stars alongside Radio 1 DJ Yinka Bokinni, comedian Rhod Gilbert, and comedian Leigh Francis in the episode, in which the quartet are asked to make their biggest failures in cake form.

While he is looking forward to the show, Danny admitted he doesn’t have much faith in his baking abilities, considering he has "blagged" his "whole career".

He said: "I’ve had many failures in my life, some of them I can’t do though cos they’re filth. I’ve blagged my whole career, 30 years.

"I’ve made a whole career out of that. I still have no idea what I’m doing. Who knows? Maybe I’m meant to be an unbelievable baker."

Danny also joked that he while he was "definitely not nervous" to appear in the tent, the 'Cheat' star worried he would struggle on the Channel 4 special because he was "very tired and very hungover".

He to the Daily Mail newspaper: "I'm definitely not nervous. I have done some really scary things in my time. So this wasn't a nerve-wracking thing.

"You always want to give a good account of yourself and hopefully learn a few things on the way. But no, I wasn’t nervous, just very tired, very hungover.

"I am 46 now and got home at half three and up again at half six, so you can imagine baking that showstopper when you are really tired. It’s been a struggle with the old concentration. My brain just needs to rest, but that is the tricky part."
