A soap source told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: “Danny is top dog when it comes to soap fans voting for their favourites.

“He’s made it onto the shortlist in three categories, which is more than any other soap actor.

“He’s had another big year as Mick Carter and once again the fans have shown just how much they love having him in Soapland.”

Danny is expected to go up against Coronation Street star Jack P. Shepherd (David Platt), Emmerdale‘s Jeff Hordley (Cain Dingle) and Hollyoaks actor Adam Woodward (Brody Hudson) in the race to be named the Best Actor.

The Football Factory star’s latest storyline has seen Mick battling panic attacks, but it hasn’t stopped him cracking out some comedy lines, helping him to a Funniest Male nod.

But he will face hilarious competition in the shape of Hollyoaks’ Ashley Taylor Dawson (Darren Osborne), Coronation Street star Joe Duttine (Tim Metcalfe), and Emmerdale favourite Dominic Brunt (Paddy Kirk).

And it will be an EastEnders v Emmerdale affair in the Best Partnership category.

Danny and his on-screen wife Kellie Bright (Linda Carter) are up for the accolade alongside their Walford co-stars Kara-Leah Fernandes and Roger Griffiths (Bailey and Mitch Baker).

Dominic and Lucy Pargeter (Paddy and Chas Dingle), and Emma Atkins and Michelle Hardwick (Charity Dingle and Vanessa Woodfield) will represent the Dales in the category.
