Emmerdale star Danny Miller thanks girlfriend in post about anxiety battle

She has helped the Aaron Dingle actor through a tough time recently

Emmerdale star Danny Miller, who plays Aaron Dingle, has shared a gushing tribute to his partner, Steph Jones.

In the post, in which he added a rare picture of the two of them together, Danny credited her with getting him through “some of the lowest points” of his life recently.

Danny bravely took to social media to detail his own battle, and admitted that Steph and his dod Gini are what’s saved him.

I couldn’t have got through #lockdown without these two little belters! I can sit and pose on a bed and pretend to know what I’m doing in #DannyDayCare as much as I want you to see. Truth is @stephjones1710 is the secret behind this black mirror of mine. She deserves the credit, entirely. We all show off our best moments on socials, never do we share the worst moments. But this girl has shared and carried some of the lowest points of my life over the last few months. A bloody good partner, daughter, sister, auntie but most importantly a true friend. A light at the end of a very dark tunnel for me. All that thrown into a big bowl of love and appreciation, mixed in with a beautiful #CAVAPOO in little #GINI has played a huge part in ms overcoming those dark moments! Anxiety and depression grabs you and shakes you no matter who you are or what walk of life. And I hope you read this post (and yes you may cringe) and see the bigger picture. Talk to someone. And allow someone to love you and love them in return. And then, like me, hopefully, you too can see a genuine path to welcoming and dealing with the horrible, invisible illness that is #anxiety and #depression. I hope you find that partner and that friend. Like me. And if you’re still reading this.. You’re doing great and I’m glad you exist ❤️❤️❤️

With Danny, like the rest of the Emmerdale cast, currently off Emmerdale as the UK soaps, have stopped production, Gini has been a welcome addition.

Danny has also done his bit for charity during lockdown as he shaved his head to raise money.

It is Danny’s directorial debut.

On-screen, Danny’s alter ego Aaron went to stay in Scotland with cousin Debbie because he was struggling.

As a result of his husband Robert, being sentenced to life in prison for murder, their union had broken down and Aaron went on a downward spiral.

Aaron recently returned to screens, taking back over his scrapyard business. He also hired cousin Vinny to work at the scrapyard, along with new guy ‘Alex’.

But neither Aaron nor Vinny know ‘Alex’ is Vinny’s dad, Paul. How will they react when they find out they’ve been lied to?
