    Danny Dyer is taking a short break from EastEnders, the BBC has confirmed.

    The corporation was responding to a report in The Sun which suggested bosses were concerned about the actor looking "exhausted".

    A BBC spokesman said: "Danny is on a short break from EastEnders. This was not enforced by bosses nor has he quit the show."

    It is not yet clear how long Dyer will be absent for.

    The 39-year-old actor, who plays pub landlord Mick Carter, joined the soap in 2013 and became a popular character with viewers.

    Mick has remained behind the bar at the Queen Victoria pub ever since and has married Linda Carter, played by Kellie Bright.

    Dyer won two National Television Awards for serial drama performance for playing the role.

    Before joining EastEnders, Dyer was best known for appearing in British films like Mean Machine and The Football Factory.

    He also fronted his own TV series - Danny Dyer's Deadliest Men.

    Earlier this month, Dyer said he would be keen to take on the lead role in Doctor Who when Peter Capaldi retires.

    In November, he appeared in an episode of Who Do You Think You Are?, in which he found out he was related to royalty.

    Dyer discovered that he is descended from William the Conqueror, Edward III and Thomas Cromwell.
