Back in 2018, Dan opened up about his family life in a rare interview.
He told the Daily Mail online: “My wife Sarah and I moved to Sheffield last year because it’s played a big part in our lives – we both studied here and it’s where I began broadcasting.”
“The kitchen is where we hang out with our children Susie, Jessica and Joe and Winnie, our cockapoo rescue dog.”
He added: “The hardest thing is being away from them for work.”
