Londoners will hear a familiar voice making announcements on the Tube today.

EastEnders star Danny Dyer, who plays Mick Carter in the soap, is voicing the announcements at Bromley-by-Bow station today to mark the show's 30th anniversary.

He said: "I can't tell you how much I loved sitting in the Bromley-By-Bow control room with them lovely ladies in their blue coats who work tirelessly. I remember I used to go through there and get off at Mile End on the district line and change to the Central Line to get to Stratford. It brought back some happy memories. So remember everyone - mind that gap."

Show bosses chose the station, on the District and Hammersmith and City lines, because it the one replaced by the fictional Walford East on Tube maps in the soap. Words: PA

Sandra Anderson, Area Manager for Bromley-By-Bow London Underground station, said: "Our station is at the heart of the East End and it is fantastic that as part of EastEnders' 30th anniversary, our customers will be able to hear one of the most recognisable voices from the show telling them that there is a 'right pukka' service on the District Line."
