Danny Dyer to explore toxic masculinity in new documentary after quitting EastEnders

Danny Dyer will reportedly front a new documentary series about masculinity later this year, with the rumoured project having been described as "hugely sensitive". The actor, 45 - known for his role as Mick Carter on EastEnders , which he left last year - is said to have signed up to present the two-part project for Channel 4 . The project will reportedly see the presenter travel around the UK to find out whether men have lost their identity as traditional gender roles become consigned to the past. It's said that he'll also delve into the subject of toxic masculinity, and explore why so many young men are struggling with their mental health and relationships with women.
