Daniel’s character Billy has been at the centre of some huge storylines in Coronation Street over the years.
The character was once engaged to Todd Grimshaw (Gareth Pierce) and is also the adoptive father of Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby).
When Daniel joined Coronation Street as a kind-hearted vicar in 2014, there was backlash from some traditional Christian groups who had a problem with his character’s sexuality.
Daniel has also received some homophobic abuse on Twitter in the past.
Aside from his work on Coronation Street, Daniel is also known for his roles in Emmerdale and Shakespeare In Love.
