Is anyone else watching this? He is such an arse!

Is he ramping up his Londahn accent because the cameras are rolling ?

I'm enjoying it!

nancy75 Thu 24-Nov-16 20:46:47

He is a wally but I quite like him and the family history is very interesting

ThroughThickAndThin01 Thu 24-Nov-16 20:46:52

I cant decide whether I like him if not!

Great episode though, direct descendant of Thomas Cromwell.

Fruitcocktail6 Thu 24-Nov-16 20:47:38

I'm enjoying it too, quite interesting

Pidlan Thu 24-Nov-16 20:47:47

It is quite funny. Doing all the geeeeeeezer crap and Cockney rhyming slang with posh people who have no idea what he's on about.

Really felt for the old lady when they told her on camera about her mother's first baby sad

The Earl Of Essex!

Pidlan Thu 24-Nov-16 20:48:46

Thomas Cromwell! That is so amazing (and unlikely)

Bagina Thu 24-Nov-16 20:49:31

It's like a parody. "Danny's meeting his dad in an East End pub". Of course he is!!! Don't let him talk!!! shock

ShatnersBassoon Thu 24-Nov-16 20:50:09

I don't think I've ever seen him on anything before, but he seems OK. A bit dim, but he's obviously very interested in what he's being told, and I like his dramatic interpretation of the stories grin

BakeOffBiscuits Thu 24-Nov-16 20:50:15

Why is it "Geeezer crap" that's the way he talks isn't it?

Is he not posh enough for yougrin

SinisterBumFacedCat Thu 24-Nov-16 20:54:42

I don't watch this program, does this normally happen?

They are going to trace him back to Jesus aren't they?

nancy75 Thu 24-Nov-16 20:55:11

I might treat myself to a ruff! That's brilliant grin

They traced the rower Matthew Pisnett back to Jesus!

Interesting that his 22 times great grandfather is Edward III. I don't believe in special blue blood and think it goes to show families go up and down in finances...........

Pidlan Thu 24-Nov-16 20:58:13

I must admit that I don't like Danny Dyer at all, but seeing his gf scream "I'm a princess!" has made me very happy indeed!

Too tired to do the maths, but surely if you go back 13 generations, you're related to an awful lot of people.

nancy75 Thu 24-Nov-16 21:09:14

Bike, if you go back far enough we probably all have a drop of blue bloodgrin

ShatnersBassoon Thu 24-Nov-16 21:09:50

An awful lot of people will also be related to that 13x grandfather, but certainly not everyone has a royal ancestor. It's noteworthy, if not unique.

MitzyLeFrouf Thu 24-Nov-16 21:11:47

I was wondering about the numbers too. Edward III must have tens of thousands (if not more) direct descendants.

Entertaining episode though. Danny Dyer is the most professional geezah evah. He's almost a parody of himself. I did laugh at some of his lines though 'this geezer had a fucking drawbridge' and 'I'm gonna get myself a big ruff'. 😄

The80sweregreat Thu 24-Nov-16 21:12:27

I dont watch this programme, however i saw a few minutes of fake crying and cockney banter and thought no!!
Was M pinsent really related to Jesus? Amazing that they can trace things back so far.
Mind you ( no offence to historians) but i always think that ,most of them could tell us anything really, who is around to say, no, it wasnt like that at all! ( things not written down anyway. )

ThroughThickAndThin01 Thu 24-Nov-16 21:13:26

Wasn't edward III his 22x great? There must be thousands of people related to him - Edward - mustn't there? (Disclaimer: am crap at maths)
