DANNY Dyer’s friends, family and EastEnders colleagues fear he may be on the way to becoming a sex addict, The Sun can reveal.
“Obviously he has battled issues with drink and drugs – but they don’t want him to be heading down path towards sex addiction.
“There has been incident after incident involving other women and it’s impacting his life and could cause damage to his career in the future if he doesn’t sort it out.
An EastEnders source revealed: A number of people close to Danny, including members of his family, close friends and people here, realised he was on the wrong track sexually.“EastEnders is a mainstream show aimed at a family audience and they’ve taken a hard-line previously with cast who have behaved in a manner they deem as damaging to the reputation of the show.”
She says he begged her to “bend over and show me that bottle” – cockney rhyming slang for ‘arse’.
But just weeks before the wedding Dyer was using his verified Twitter account, which has 1.2million followers, to secretly beg the blonde woman to send him intimate sex videos.
The EastEnders source added: “At the end of the day, when it’s come to the point where you are sexting random fans over the internet something has to change.
“He’s got a wife and a daughter and so much potential to be a great man, so he’s something he agreed to try and sort out.
“There’s been a huge amount of secrecy around his extended break from EastEnders – but the bosses there were a big part of the reason why he’s realised he needed to get away from everything.”
Chiefs had urged the actor, who plays Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter, to “sort his life out”.
Danny has a long running history of cheating on his now-wife Joanne Mas, who has been with the actor since they met as teenagers in 1995.
In 2014 she forgave Dyer after he spent the night with a student.
The 21-year-old took a naked snap of the star on her mobile after they met in a nightclub.
The same year Dyer had a threesome with Cara Chamberlain, 29, and her pal in a Blackpool hotel.
In 2013 Laura Boyd, 20, told how she had sex with the star four times in one night at a Belfast hotel.
She said: “It was the best sex I have ever had.”
In 2008 Joanne booted Dyer out after he went on a wild bender with Lily Allen.
She also gave him his marching orders in 2001 when he was linked with Billie Piper.
Dyer has previously admitted to cheating on Joanne, the mother of his three children, despite describing her as his “f***ing rock”.
In 2009 he explained: “I’ve done so many things I’ve regretted.
“I’ve royally f***ed up with my missus. I got caught doing something I shouldn’t have.
“I hate myself for what I did and for being tempted by forbidden fruit.”
He has also publicly vowed he would not stray again, saying in a March 2015 interview after his engagement: “I thought the grass was greener but it was horrible.
“I don’t want to go there again. I have cheated in the past and I suffered the consequences quite badly.
“Jo’s always been the girl for me. Those things happened a long time ago and what we’ve got together is much more important than that.”
