The Sun On Sunday reports that Dyer, who plays new Queen Vic pub landlord Mick Carter, is facing a dressing down after describing some of the people who had sent him tweets about Friday’s episode as ‘homophobic pricks’. 

However, a spokesperson for the BBC One soap told Digital Spy there is no truth in the reports.

During Friday’s episode, watched by nearly 8 million viewers,  Mick comforted his son Johnny (Sam Strike) who came out as gay. Although the scene evoked a number of ignorant comments, the episode was largely praised on Twitter for the emotional father-son scene.
