Danny Dyer has revealed that he is planning to undergo surgery on one of his testicles.
The EastEnders star, 43, has revealed that it has swelled to size of a ‘jacket potato’ due to a condition called a hydrocele.
A hydrocele is a swelling in the scrotum where fluid collects around the testicle, usually in adult men due to inflammation or injury to the scrotum.
In addition to some short-sightedness that has left him “scrambling around”, The Wall presenter Danny also spoke about his hydrocele.
After saying he will get laser-eye surgery, Danny noted: “But the other thing I’ve got to get done is my b*****k.
“I’ve got a massive b*****k, it’s called a hydrocele.
“Basically one of them is like a f***ing jacket potato… for real…it’s one big ball.”
He jokingly added: “So I’ve got the biggest b*****k in the world and the smallest b*****k in the world.
“And If it’s a cold day then my winkle looks like a little slug laying on an apple.”
Rylan joked: “I for one would like to see that.”
Dani said: “Don’t get it out today, eh?”
However, Danny affirmed that treating the hydrocele is a focus, saying: “That’s going to be the priority.”
The pair also have a 13-year-old daughter named Sunnie and a seven-year-old son named Arty.
Danny and Joanne recently became grandparents to Dani’s baby boy Santiago after their daughter welcomed him with boyfriend Sammy Kimmence in January.
Meanwhile, Danny himself has been at the centre of a hard-hitting storyline in EastEnders after it was revealed that his character Mick Carter had been sexually abused as a child by a foster worker, Katy Lewis ( Simone Lahbib ).
In recent episodes he has been bonding with their daughter Frankie Lewis (Rose Ayling-Ellis) whilst repairing his marriage to Linda Carter ( Kellie Bright ).
Mick and Linda’s daughter Nancy Carter (Maddy Hill) is also due to return to Albert Square in the coming months, before actress Kellie Bright heads on maternity leave.
Will the Carter marriage survive Linda’s temporary departure?
Most importantly, we hope Danny’s health condition is resolved soon.
