Danny said: "It's been quite slow integrating me back into the show since I come back.

He added to The Sun Online: "It feels like Kate Oates has brought the show back, she is the queen and we are all hopelessly in love with her."

Speaking at the National Television Awards - where he won the Serial Drama Performance prize - he told BANG Showbiz and other media: "It's a creative place, it's a difficult place to work, we've had a tough couple of years.
