EastEnders actor Danny Dyer is feeling "very nervous" about his upcoming wedding, despite having left the planning of his big day entirely up to fiancee Joanne Mas.

Danny Dyer is feeling "very nervous" about his upcoming wedding.

The 38-year-old actor isn't shaken by much as Mick Carter in EastEnders, but when it comes to real life, Danny is struggling to control his apprehension ahead of marrying childhood sweetheart Joanne Mas, with whom he has three children.

"You'd think that I would be prepared for my own wedding day, but I am very nervous about it," Danny admitted to Hello! magazine.

Danny has washed his hands of planning the big day, leaving preparations entirely up to Joanne. However, he adds that his fiancee, who he has been dating since 1992, is somewhat overwhelmed ahead of the nuptials.

"I finally understand the meaning of the word 'bridezilla'," Danny smiled cheekily. "The stress that Jo seems to be under is off the scale."

The pair are having a Spanish-themed ceremony in the English countryside this September (16). Despite the day looming, Danny has only just started pondering what to wear as he meets his bride at the bottom of the aisle.

Using his famed Cockney rhyming slang, Danny said: "I am only now starting to think about my whistle (whistle and flute = suit).

"I want to go for a Sean Connery vibe. I love the 1960s and would love a '60s-style suit with a crisp white shirt and skinny black tie."

While Joanne has undoubtedly chosen her gown by now, Danny is completely unaware of what style she has gone for. However, he does have an image of how his soon-to-be wife would ideally look.

"I have an image in my head of how I would like Jo to look," he said. "She would be in a dress with a big skirt, bare shoulders, no veil, with her hair down and quite wild, maybe with a tiara on top.

"She always looks beautiful so whatever she wears, I know I won't be disappointed."
