M&S won’t have to look far for a replacement if hunky David Gandy decides to pull a sickie – they’ve already got one waiting in the wings.
In an exclusive interview, Dean – known for playing Robbie Jackson in EastEnders, said: “He wishes he looked like me... No, I’m joking.
“It’s not just the fact he’s a model, he’s a very handsome guy, he’s not a young model, as in he’s kind of distinguished and the sheer fact that people even think that we remotely look alike, I’ll take that one definitely for the team. I think it’s great.”
Dean, who is launching Virgin Trains’ search for new voice of their on board talking toilets, is also backing the £86.7million EastEnders set upgrade to be unveiled in 2021.
He added: “They’re giving it the respect it deserves.

“I think it’s the coldest place on earth that’s all I know. It’s a wind trap there. You see grown men crying come January there trust me.”
Hopefully they’ll stick a few more radiators in the new Queen Vic.
