Whilst travel announcements usually blend into the background noise of our train journeys, they will be delivered with a twist today.

Namely because none other than DANNY DYER has taken over the mic at Bromley-By-Bow, the station which has been replace by Walford East on the EastEnders version of the London Underground.

We suppose this means that there'll be less of the “please stand back from the closing doors” and a lot more "move back, you melts!".

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.”

Danny Dyer added happily: “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”.

Anyone else suddenly in the mood for a trip into the East End?

EastEnders continues tonight on BBC One at 8pm.
