THE BBC has won public support for its move to stop poor quality gangster films by casting Danny Dyer in EastEnders.
The production of over a dozen straight-to-DVD feature films including Hard As Nails, Lapdance Boss II and Propah has since been halted.
A BBC spokesman said: “By giving Dyer work four nights’ work a week, we cut the risk of him appearing elsewhere to almost zero.
“Anyone renting a film from Blockbuster will now enjoy a much shorter wheat-from-chaff sorting process.”
The BBC confirmed that it had received funding from the same government trust which financed the moves to Hollywood of Vinny Jones and Martine McCutcheon.
