Danny Dyer has a special way to make sure he can always communicate with his deaf costar Rose Ayling-Ellis when they are both on set at EastEnders.
Rose lip-reads, which relies on seeing the mouth of the person she is speaking to, so she can struggle when someone is far away or walking in the other direction.
However, her costar Danny makes sure she can always see him clearly wherever he is using a simple method.
If they are speaking, he will walk backwards away from her so she can see him enough to continue lip reading.

In an interview with Inside Soap magazine, Rose confessed that she’d been especially welcomed to the cast by Danny.
"Danny made me feel at ease right from the start," she shared, "His deaf awareness is top-notch, and he even walks backwards with me to set, just so I can see his face, which says a lot about him.”
The actors star in the same Walford family since Rose joined the soap as the first deaf character in a mainstream soap last year.
Danny plays Rose’s on-screen dad, and she says she still can’t believe her luck on the days that they film together.
"We get on really well, and I’m always excited to share scenes with him."
Rose continued: "Having him as my screen dad is amazing!
"I couldn't believe it when I was told. I was so nervous about meeting him and was worried if I would be able to lip-read him."
Rose is currently gearing up to appear on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, where we expect Danny to be cheering her own from the audience.
Before joining the EastEnders family back in 2020, Rose had starred in several other programmes including Casualty, as Bianca Sinclair, and Esther in Stephen Poliakoff’s drama Summer of Rockets.
She’s also popped up in The Vamps music video Middle of the Night and played Kattrin in Mother Courage at the Royal exchange Theatre in Manchester.
