John Bardon obituary

14 September 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Actor who appeared in films and musicals but was best known for his role as Jim Branning in EastEnders

Jim was a regular in the Queen Vic pub, who had a weakness for gambling but married the fictional Albert Square's gossip and minder of morals, Dot Cotton, until ill-health saw her dispatch him to a care home.

The balding, crumple-faced actor, often seen wearing a cloth cap, first appeared in the serial in 1996, when Jim arrived in Walford for his daughter April's wedding.

Danny Dyer, hes a rough diamond, eh? At the TV Choice Awards this week, the EastEnders landlord was named Best Soap Actor and the BBC series grabbed the Best Soap prize, at the presentation of which, the Daily Mirror reports, Dyer appeared to lean in for a full-on kiss with Great British Bake Off presenter Mary Berry, which she brushed off with predictably good grace. As Dyer accepted his gong, he peppered his acceptance speech with swearing and, for some reason, launched into awards host David Mitchell saying the Peep Show star was nothing without his script. A soap star having a go at another actor for relying on scripts? Ten out of 10 for logic there, Danny boy.
