EastEnders star Danny Dyer is planning a second honeymoon for his wife Jo Mas after returning from South Africa.
The actor, who plays Mick Carter in the hit BBC soap , wants to whisk her away to the Maldives for a no expense spared holiday.
It comes as the 39-year-old took a break from the show to “sort his life out” after suffering from exhaustion.
He married childhood sweetheart Jo in September after 20 years together.
A source said: “Since they got married Danny has been working non stop, they haven’t had a lot of time together and he wants to make Jo feel special. He’s very focused on his family.”
Last month Danny flew to South Africa for a well earned rest. The TV favourite looked shattered according to onlookers who spotted him travelling alone at Heathrow. It is not known when he will return to Walford.
But the source added: “His time in South Africa has done him the world of good. Now he just wants to do lots of fun things with his family.”
Meanwhile Jo, 39, has been at their Essex home looking after their three children aged 19, nine and two.
Mick reveals he’s going to prison
She told how she has been busy “ironing vests and pj’s” while caring for their brood.
Party loving Danny’s problems started to spiral when he appeared to be drinking heavily at the National Television Awards in January.
Speaking at the NTAs, Danny who earns £400,000 a year for his role in EastEnders, revealed he had tried to quit the booze.
He said: “The beginning of the year is a month ago now. I mean, I did try to give up drinking but, as you can see, I’m now sucking on a lager.”
He had previously also admitted he was considering other options away from Albert Square.
“Four years is a long time,” he said. “It’s been really rewarding but there’s other stuff out there. I’d love to show other sides to me, I loved theatre and all that.”
And Danny, who discovered in an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? that he was a direct descendant of Edward III, has opened up about his troubled relationship with alcohol in the past.
He wrote in his 2015 autobiography: “I sometimes have a half at the end of the day in The Queen Vic, though they started putting TCP in the pumps to stop me drinking it.”
