The 25-year-old actor's alter-ego Keanu Taylor has been playing away with Sharon Mitchell (Letitia) in recent weeks, and while he admits filming intimate moments can be "awkward and hard" at times, he counts himself lucky to be working so closely to the 50-year-old actress.

Speaking at the TV Choice Awards at London's Dorchester Hotel on Monday night (10.09.18), he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I feel a lot of responsibility for the character to work. We've really had a lot of fun, me and Letitia Dean.

"To have that storyline with anyone in the cast ... I'm a lucky guy to work with Letitia because she's so experienced, she's such a joy to work with.

"Doing those sort of scenes can be awkward and hard but we've had such a fun time doing those scenes. I've been lucky to have the opportunity to work with Letitia."

Keanu will be in hot water if his boss and Sharon's husband, notorious Walford hard-man Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden), discovers his significant other's infidelity, but Danny has hinted he may never find out about their affair.

He added: "He may never find out. It could be one of those best kept secrets."

While Keanu will feel Phil's wrath if he does discover the pair's big secret, Danny loves starring opposite the soap legend.

He said: "Steve is great. Every time I work with him I'm learning. I've learnt so much just from working with him.

"He comes onto the set knowing what the scene requires so you can't ever question him."

Zack Morris - who plays Keanu's brother Keegan Baker - added: "He's really down to earth. He just knows his stuff - you can't argue with that."
