Actor Danny Dyer has said the Royal Family does not recognise that he his "110,000th in line to the throne".

When he filmed Who Do You Think You Are? in 2016, the EastEnders star discovered he was related to Thomas Cromwell, Edward III, William the Conqueror and Henry III.

He is to explore his royal lineage in a two-part BBC series called Danny Dyer's Right Royal Family, due to air next year.

Appearing alongside Dame Joan Collins as a guest on The Jonathan Ross Show, he said: "I'm 110,000th in line to the throne, so in about 800 years, they'll dig me up and I'll be king of England. It is fascinating all that - it's insane."
