The former 'Emmerdale' star, 30, was named the winner of the ITV reality series on Sunday (12.12.21), after he beat fellow finalists Simon Gregson and Frankie Bridge to being named the very first King of the Castle since the show’s move to Gwrych Castle in North Wales.

Speaking as he sat on the throne for the first time, the speechless star admitted: "I can't believe it. Oh my gosh, I can't believe it!"

Frankie did the honours of giving Danny his crown.

She quipped: "This is the last thing I do for you."

He continued: "From the bottom of my heart and my family's heart this is the proudest thing I've ever done. I can't believe that I've won this ... I'm in shock."

When asked by hosts Ant and Dec if he would have thought he would be in this position three weeks ago, he said: "Nah, I never thought I'd be in this position."

'Coronation Street' star Simon came in second place.

He reflected on his worst moments, including his last trial, which saw him take on the Frightening Feast challenge with a cow's vagina and a sheep's penis on the menu.

The 47-year-old star crudely quipped: "The cow's vagina wasn't the best I've had."

He then said when asked by the Geordie duo what it would mean if he won: "It would be nice. But it's really difficult when you are sat next to your buddy. I want Danny to win it."

Frankie came third after confronting her fear of being in confined places.

The former Saturdays star took on the Toom of Doom, which saw her enclosed with 50 snakes slithering and sliding all over her, covering her entire body and face.

And after being revealed as a runner-up, the 32-year-old star admitted she wanted Danny to win over Simon.

She told Ant and Dec: "When we started I thought Danny would be king of the castle. He is obsessed with the show. He was in from the beginning, he was in the clink. But I love them both, it's hard, but I do love Danny."

The 2021 series was not without its challenges, with TV legend Richard Madeley, 65, being forced to pull out early after falling poorly in camp.

And Storm Arwen caused havoc leading to the show being cancelled for two nights in a row for the first time in its almost two decades history.

Danny follows in the footsteps of last year's Queen of the Castle, Giovanna Fletcher, 36, who would normally hand over the crown, but due to COVID-19 guidelines, this tradition was axed this year.

And the rest of the stars of the show, Including Naughty Boy, David Ginola and Snoochie Shy appeared digitally as the winner was unveiled.
