You will NEVER guess what 'EastEnders' star is ACTUAL 'royalty'!

So we all know Danny Dyer as the geezer behind the Vic in EastEnders.  

He is the latest in a long line of stars to appear in TV's 'Who Do You Think You Are', a show that traces the ancestry of some of the UK's biggest names.

Whilst Danny was keen to find out more about his roots, he kinda guessed there would be a few savoury characters un-earthed.  However, tracing his family tree back generations, Danny discovered that he was a direct descendant of Thomas Cromwell, King Edward III and William the Conqueror!

It appears the Queen Vic statue isn't the only thing 'royal' propping up the bar in Albert Square!
