The 36-year-old former Hollyoaks star appeared on the first ever celebrity edition of the series back in 2005, which saw him compete against eventual winners Jayne Middlemiss and Fran Cosgrave.
Danan returned to the show a year later, and spent the majority of his time tearfully fighting with or really fancying former model Sophie Anderton.
After one memorable blow-out, he was even escorted off set by security after he discovered that fellow celebrity contestants had all pretended that Anderton really liked him when in fact she just wanted to be friends. Or enemies.
And who can forget her somewhat dismissive observation: "You can do sit-ups?"
Danan also had some heated exchanges with retired basketball star Dennis Rodman and another former Hollyoaks actor, Lee Otway, during his time on the show.
