I dropped Danny a message, let’s keep in mind that I hadnt really seen Danny since 1997 when the world was all about Adidas Poppers, Rollerworld, Byker Grove and taping Hanson and The Spice Girls on the Sunday night top 40 with your ghetto blaster.

Despite my slightly random and totally out of the blew message, I was delighted when Danny and his gorgeous partner Leanne agreed to come and model for the afternoon.

The date was set, location agreed and Danny brought along his beloved motorbike.
