“I’ve actually left Emmerdale, I unfortunately decided to start a new path in life. I’ve got my baby now and I’m [getting] married next year, it felt like the right time to open a new chapter in my life.

“I’m very very emotional about it actually, it’s been a massive part of my life.

“I’ve wanted to spread my wings for a while and a show like this can give me the opportunity to see what happens after it. [I can] start a new life with my family and see what happens.”

Recently Steph appeared on Lorraine and as they discussed that it would be interesting to see what opportunities come Danny’s way after the I’m A Celeb, Steph said: “That was one of the reasons he did it because this is the biggest opportunity of his career.

“He’s been in Emmerdale for 13 years and he wanted to open the door maybe to a different career path.

“It meant he’s got longer time off with Albert next year rather than working Monday to Friday seven till seven.”
