The former 'Hollyoaks' hunk - who was known for portraying village heartthrob Dodger Savage in the Channel 4 soap - is "terrified" about taking part in the forthcoming series of the Ballroom and Latin show but is thrilled he's been chosen.

Speaking to The Sun Online, he said: "I'm as terrified as I am excited! I've done a few bits and bobs of secret filming for the show and it's all become very real now.

"I can't believe that I am now part of the biggest show on television and I cannot wait to get started."

The 28-year-old actor - who is engaged to his former co-star Carley Stenson - has plenty of experience when it comes to booty shaking and hip snaking as he starred in the West End musical 'Wicked' for four years before appearing in the regional production of 'Legally Blonde'.

Despite his head-start when it comes to dance, Danny will certainly have some stiff competition as he's not the only one who has experience when it comes to body movement.

Will Young - who took part in the revival of' Cabaret' the musical, in which he was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award, in 2013 - is also on a mission to lift the highly sought after Glitterball trophy after he recently joined the line-up.

Melvin Odoom, Ed Balls, Laura Whitmore and Louise Redknapp have also been confirmed for this year's series, while Frank Bruno and Judge Rinder are also thought to be on the hit list.
