Airing tonight at 9pm Right Royal Family will take Danny, his daughter Dani Dyer and the rest of the Dyer family across Britain to immerse themselves in the culture of their ancestors each Wednesday at the same time on BBC One.
The Dyer's will be exploring what life was like over the last 800 years, from Vikings to Tudors as they dress up, eat and live like royalty and immerse themselves in the lifestyles and activities of their ancestors. Danny will start his journey following his Viking roots as he steps into the shoes of his 35 x great-grandfather, Rollo as he samples the delicacies of sheep's tongue and learns to fight like a Viking warrior.
Danny Dyer also picked up an award at the 2019 National Televison Awards last night for Best Serial Drama Performance for his role as Mick Carter in Eastenders. In an emotional speech Danny dedicated his award to playwright, Harold Pinter before giving heartfelt words of encouragement saying: "I just want to say to all you young kids living out there in poverty, who don't think they've got a right to dream, or hope or believe. Do not let where you come from define where you're going in life. You can be whoever you want to be."
