Love for Danny Walters’ longer hair

Danny also received a lot of social media love recently when he unveiled a new, longer hairstyle.

He debuted longer locks during a day out at a racing circuit back in early July.

He posted several snaps showing him on the back of a motorbike – and repeated the pose again a week ago.

Danny captioned the images in July: “Getting my regular dose of adrenaline with some good friends of mine at Brands Hatch Race Track @brandshatchofficial thanks for looking after us @msvtrackdays @kawasakiuk.”

However, most observers were more taken by the change in his appearance.

His soap character Keanu was best known for sporting a shaved head.

Fans said at the time how much they loved his new look – putting it down to lockdown.

In the picture with his niece, it isn’t possible to tell how long Danny’s hair is now.

That’s because his head covered by a cap and his head is bowed to embrace her.

But in the other most recent image on his feed, it appears Danny may have left his shaved appearance behind for now.

Not only does it seem that he’s kept his locks, but he also looks to be sprouting some fur on his face, too!

A fan commented: “Nice beard Danny! Suits you.”
