Speaking to TV Times magazine, he added: "I’m a bit choked up.

"It’s a bit of a surprise, but a lovely early Christmas present. I’ll put it in my dressing room, so I can look at it every day and be proud."

While Danny loves watching Jodie portray the Thirteenth Doctor after she replaced Peter Capaldi as the legendary sci-fi character, he previously wanted to take on the role.

Speaking in February 2017, he said: "I'd be interested in it. I could see myself in the scarf and all that.

"I think I could do it easily. I'd keep my accent too."

Danny is no stranger to winning an award for portraying Mick, and in October he claimed his on-screen wife Kellie Bright (Linda Carter) "forgot" to bring home their Best Partnership Inside Soap Awards gong because she was drunk.

He joked: "We'd like to show you the award in our hands, but unfortunately she's forgot it.

"She was ... how can I put it, she was battered last night. She was celebrating."

While Danny was telling the story, Kellie made sure to clarify that she definitely hadn't "lost" the trophy.

She added: "I wouldn't say lost, I'd say forgot."
