Ex-EastEnder Dean Gaffney applies for Secret Service Position (and then tells the papers about it)

SOAP star Dean Gaffney last night revealed he wants to be the next James Bond — after applying for a job with MI5.

The ex-EastEnder, 34, answered an online ad offering the role of Mobile Surveillance Officer with the secret service. He said: “I’ve got an enquiring mind, so I thought I’d give it a go.”

He told The Sun: “I love spy films and the whole James Bond thing.

“MI5 put out an advert looking for people and I thought, ‘How hard can it be?’ Most spies spend their lives pretending to be people who they’re not. I do that for a living.”

Bond, of course, famously works for MI6, which deals with international intelligence — while MI5 focuses on domestic security.

Pals said Dean — who played Albert Square’s Robbie Jackson — applied for the job after hitting a dry patch in his acting career. The MI5 ad read: “Join us as a Mobile Surveillance Officer at MI5 and help keep people across the UK safe.
“A valued member of a diverse team, you’ll follow subjects of national security investigations by foot and by car.
“Your observation skills, quick thinking and ability to fit into your environment means you’ll be able to make a big contribution.”

Dad-of-two Dean, a star on the 2006 series of I’m A Celebrity, certainly has 007’s gift of the gab and is famous for being a hit with the ladies.

He has bedded a string of women including models Linsey Dawn McKenzie and Alicia Douvall.

In 2007 The Sun revealed some of his weird fetishes, including how he begged a chubby couple for a threesome. He also once told a girl: “Shag me, I’m famous”— and pleaded with another to spit in his face during sex.

We set up a hotline for female readers the actor HADN’T pestered for sex. It remained silent all day.
Dean was chopped from his role as loveable EastEnders road-sweeper Robbie — who kept trusty pet dog Wellard — in 2003. He last returned for a few episodes two years ago.

He has had guest slots in several TV dramas including The Bill — and played a salesman in Ricky Gervais’ Extras Christmas Special. In 2008 he starred in an ad for washing powder.

One friend said:“There wasn’t much acting work around so Dean had a look at what else was out there.
“That’s when he saw the MI5 advert and figured it was worth applying.
“He’s not heard back yet — but fingers crossed.”
