However, his girlfriend, Kirsty Leigh Porter – who plays Roz on the show – apparently never felt jealous when Danny had to film kissing scenes.
Danny explained, “Romantic scenes are embarrassing, especially when you’re only 17, but you just have to get on with it.
“I didn’t have to kiss anyone for the first six months but then it was Victoria Sugden I kissed first.
“You just have to prepare yourself for it and forget people are watching.
“I won’t miss kissing blokes. I haven’t got a problem with it but I don’t think I’ll be reminiscing!”
He added, “Kirsty has never got jealous because I’ve been kissing lads for three years. Though that could all change now…
“But because she’s an actress she’s understanding.”
We’ll see Danny as Aaron for the last time on Thursday, April 5, and of filming those scenes, Danny said, “On my final day it was very teary-eyed because the others set me off.
“It’s the realisation it’s the last scene you’re going to do there. The tears in the final scenes are real tears. You can’t hold it back. The realisation I was leaving just kicked in.
“I’ll miss everyone — there is not one bad person on Emmerdale’s cast or crew.
“I’ll miss Kelvin Fletcher, who plays Andy Sugden, and Adam Thomas, who plays Adam Barton, a lot.”
And of the many major storylines he’s featured in, Danny said, “Aaron has had an emotional rollercoaster. I have to go running and burn off the emotion at the end of the day.
“You have to leave the building and leave the emotion there.
“Crying from Monday to Friday can get draining but you have to learn to leave it behind. You have to go and get rid of it by having a run.”
Danny went on to reveal that the worst time that he’d experienced while working on the show was when its producer Gavin Blyth died within weeks of being diagnosed with cancer.
Of that, Danny said, “Gavin’s death hit everyone very hard. It was such a shock.
“He got cancer then a month and a bit later he just died.
“He was like a father figure for me. I looked up to him and he helped me play the great storylines. He nurtured me.
“He was a very talented young man. He was there 24/7 for me.
“He stood by his word and he stood by me and said he’d support me and he did. We all miss him so much.”
But finally, Danny said, “The years have flown by. But they do say time flies when you’re having fun.”
