Danny Dyer praised EastEnders when he said contract jobs lead to people not being able to follow their dreams.
The 44-year-old actor has announced he will be leaving BBC One in January, after nine years playing the lovable rogue Mick Carter.
Danny has won the hearts of millions of viewers with his portrayal of Queen Vic, and he has also appeared on other BBC programmes, including the hit Saturday night game show The Wall.
In 2018, the father-of-three is said to have signed a £1m deal with BBC bosses.
On the latest episode of Sorted with the Dyers with his daughter Dani Dyer, Danny read a question from an audience member named Ellie who was struggling to fulfill her dream of becoming a comedy writer.

The 18-year-old consulted the father-son duo because she finds it difficult to be taken seriously and wants to disrupt the entertainment industry, but worries being from the West Midlands will hinder her success.
“This is what I went through,” Danny began. “Don’t let your class worry you.”
Danny quipped: “We working class farmers, if you want to call us, we have a few things about us,” Danny quips.
“We completely understand what life is like. To live on the f**king line. And that is the origin of comedy,” he explains.

He told listeners that comedy was something he’d wanted to do for a long time, and heaped praise on comedians like Phoebe Waller-Bridge, whom he called “the f**king great actor great”.
“This is something I would like to delve deeper into,” he admits.
He urges people to “follow their dreams” and says it is “nonsense” to live your life “working for someone to make them rich”.
“We should all chase our f**king dreams. As a human being,” he shared as he began talking about his own experiences and said he would hate to work for someone while sacrificing his goals in life.

“And what stopped us was when a recruiter came up to you and said, ‘Do you want to work for me?’ And you go, ‘oh, okay’. And they said, ‘I’ll give you 40k a year to not follow your dreams,’ he said.
Danny says that not meeting your own expectations is like being “on the conveyor belt of life”, and says people can get depressed if they’re doing a job that doesn’t work. they hate doing.
Danny then tells Ellie that she should be prepared for “a lot of rejection”, and says there will be “up and down” to being a successful comedian.
Despite his stern warning, he said he hoped Ellie would write a comedy for him, but told her: “Make sure I don’t have an accent, because I can’t f ** king made them.”
