Find out what Danny Dyer thought of Katie Hopkins mocking his engagement

EastEnders star Danny Dyer has called Katie Hopkins a 'daft sexist' after she poked fun at the news that his long-term girlfriend had proposed to him.

No woman should ever propose to a man. Certainly not one with a naff bum-fluff beard and dodgy squint.

Katie compared the proposal to the US case when Lorena Bobbitt sliced off her husband’s penis.

Dyers girlfriend went the full Lorena Bobbitt; being proposed to removes a man's genitals. Too emasculated to say no were we @MrDDyer?

Danny, who plays Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter in the soap hit back, comparing Katie to actor Wilfred Bramble, who played the scruffy father in Steptoe And Son.
